Hello Friends!!!

If it wasn’t clear from the video above and the fact that you’re on my Patreon page, I’VE FINALLY JOINED PATREON!!! 

With Patreon, I’ll release songs and albums as I create them, directly to you, before I share them with the rest of the world. And instead of 2 years in between albums, I'll release new music to my patrons every month! It’s like you become my record label - you get to be in on everything as it happens.

Patreon borrows from the word Patron, as in “Patron of the arts,” which is how music used to get made - Mozart, Tchaikovsky, Beethoven, etc - Patreon is like old school meeting crowdfunding. It makes so much sense to me, as an independent artist, and I believe it will be a fun and inspiring way for us to get my music out to the world, going forward. 

You can be my Patreon for as little as $1/month, and in addition to music, there are all sorts of special perks at various levels, just like we did with Indiegogo. But most importantly, you’ll get music from me all the time, and you’ll know you were a valuable part of the creation of this new music.

............

HOW DOES IT WORK? 

Most importantly, Patreon isn’t an equal exchange, money for art, you give me this and I’ll give you that kind of transaction. It's more for those people who recognize the value in art, and believe artists should be compensated for creating and sharing our gifts with the world. Because pretty much everything is available for free now. For the consumer. But not for the artist. I spend almost all of my time and resources creating things that live for free on the internet, and I know there are some people out there who believe in me/my music, and want to help!

I think I made the Patreon experience pretty clear in the video, but here are the basics:

  • I create songs and videos (realistically, it will be between 1-4 each month, closer to 1)
  • You pledge a certain dollar amount per release
  • If you like, you can set a monthly limit (don't worry, it's simple, you'll see how to do it when you sign up!)
  • I deliver the things I create directly to you (Immediately, instead of waiting the 1-3 years it takes to create another album)
  • This is a fun and collaborative process!!! (we'll chat, we'll vote, we'll make music)
............

STUFF IN THE WORKS


  • Professionally recorded live video of my show at 7 Stages in Atlanta
  • Hotel Cafe live album
  • Covers EP (including Wildflowers and Up To The Mountain!)
  • Developing some of my #30SecondSongs into full songs - and YOU will vote on which to include!
  • "Lost Songs" - an album of songs I never released, mixed by Robert Carranza at Jack Johnson's studio!
............

SOME PARTING WORDS

You guys blew my mind with your support of my Indiegogo campaign. 600 people raised over $50,000 and I was able to record at Wilco's studio in Chicago, with an incredible, Grammy-winning producer and some excellent musicians. The resulting album is everything I wanted it to be, and I'm grateful for the opportunity to create it.

But now I want to do things differently. I want to create new stuff ALL THE TIME, and get it to you on a regular, ongoing basis. And Patreon makes it possible for me to do just that.

If you have any questions at all, please EMAIL ME at [email protected]. I will answer you directly and help however I can.

Thank you for everything you make possible in my life. 

Thank you for believing in me.

Love always,

Help You Fly
$1 or more per song/video/etc.
Thank you for supporting my art, and helping me build a sustainable, controlled-by-me career! I am an artist, so I completely understand that $1 from someone like me (aka kinda low on cash most of the time) probably means as much if not more than $100 from someone with a lot of dough. You are making my day right now. You'll receive: access to the PATRON-ONLY FEED (where I post all the stuff I want to share publicly but don't want to share *publicly* and we discuss things like an old school message board circa 2005) + streaming of new music and videos (everything I post in that feed)
Say It's Possible
$3 or more per song/video/etc.
Thank you!!!!! for helping to put form around the value of the art I create, and helping me spend more time creating it. You'll receive:  Everything at the $1 tier + streaming AND downloads of everything I release on that feed, whether song, video, whatever, emailed directly to you, so you can enjoy in your car, on your phone, all the places you can take your phone, like toilets and airplanes.
Close To Your Head
$5 or more per song/video/etc.
You are awesome and I am grateful for your support. Thank you.  You'll receive: Everything from the $1 and $3 tiers + access to my Patron Lens a behind-the-scenes live broadcast of whatever happens to be going on in the moment. Check it out here: https://blog.patreon.com/lens/
Something Good To Show You
$10 or more per song/video/etc.
Gonna do my best to make this cool for you guys, because this is some serious support. Every level of support is serious, whether $1/month or $1,000/month – thank you for believing in me. You'll receive: All the above stuff + access to PRIVATE MONTHLY ONLINE SHOW only for my $10+ level patrons! I'll play some songs, we'll talk about life,  I’ll take requests and play them for you, whenever possible. 
Flesh For Bones
$25 or more per song/video/etc.
If you're considering this level of support, THANK YOU!!! for supporting me at this level. It's huge. You'll receive: All the above stuff + personal and private video update, delivered to your email, every month that you're a patron. 
You For Me
$50 or more per song/video/etc.
At this point, you're *extra* and you deserve to be rewarded for it. You'll receive: All the above stuff + handpainted one-of-a-kind postcards delivered to you, in the mail, from wherever I am, every few months that you remain a patron at this level, starting with a "welcome postcard" as soon as you sign up! 
Bleed For You
$100 or more per song/video/etc.
This is one hell of a commitment, and I don’t know what to say, other than thank you 💜 You'll receive: All the above stuff + one 30-min Skype session with me, each month, could be a lesson, if you're a singer, or a social media coaching session, or we can just chat about life. I'm an excellent problem solver. 
Nothing To Hide
$150 or more per song/video/etc.
If you’re supporting me at this level, we’ve probably met somewhere in the world over the last 10 years, and I’m grateful for your continued support. You'll receive: All the above stuff + one original larger scale painting when you sign up AND guest list (you + 1) for any of my shows, for as long as you're a patron.
Everything
$1,000 or more per song/video/etc.
This might be batshit crazy, but I had to give you the option. Just in case someone out there is starring in a real life version of that 80's movie where the guy has to spend all of his money within a certain amount of time in order to inherit an even bigger sum of money.

There's only one of these $1,000 level rewards, and if it’s for you, then I will do everything within my power to make it an awesome and unparalleled exclusive artist experience for you. One month, if you're in LA, I'll come over and cook dinner for you. I'll bring the tequila. Another month I'll write a song for you, record it, and send it to you. When I tour, I'll play a private house concert at your house. I'll think of something special for every month you're a patron. And we can discuss further when I call you to say HOLY SH*T THANK YOU SOOOOOOOO FREAKING MUCH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Goals
49 of 100 patrons
Once we reach 100 patrons, I'll write and record another special Patreon song for you; a follow-up to the song in my intro video!
