WELCOME TO THE REVOLUTION.
The creative revolution that is.
Happening right here.
Right now.
On Patreon.
Where the power of the artist/fan relationship is harnessed directly so you can support my creative process PER THING I make. 

OK, basics. In case you don't know...
Anne Stott here. 
I make music (two full length albums so far: LOVE NEVER DIES & PENNSYLVANIA)
and words (chapbooks, multimedia art pieces, who knows what's next?)
and videos (see below)
and plays (it's an actor thing)
and whatever else I can think of 
And then I share them with you  
Which is cool in this 21st century world cuz there are so many ways to share work. And is also a little like sending a shooting star out into the night sky because there are so many ways to share work and so many people sharing their work.

OK, a little art/funding history...
A long long time ago, art and music were funded by kings and churches who were the patrons of artists.  This was cool because it meant artists could eat and make their work.  It was also not cool because they had to make what the kings and churches wanted and very few artists were funded. Then came regular old rich people and governments and then record labels and movie studios and galleries. A long history of non-artists telling artists what art to make. Yuck.

Now. The Revolution.
Today, thanks to Patreon, YOU ARE THE PATRONS!
Patreon is a crowd funding fan club where you support me making my singles and videos and performance art pieces and and and... 
No record label. (YES!)
No A&R telling me what I can and can't do. (Oh yeah!) 
Just you and me making music and art and all the cool things.
It's a CREATIVE REVOLUTION.
And since I love creativity and revolution more than pretty much anything else, it gets my heart all fluttery.
YOU are now my record label.
YOU are my patron. 
You're a country station.
You are the wind... fine, I'll calm down. Maybe... 

Here's how the revolution works: 
You make a patreon account (if you don't have one already)
You pledge to support my creative endeavors
at any level you want 
per thing I make (each video, single, art installation).
Cool right?
In return, you will get the ALL ACCESS VIP BACKSTAGE PASS to what I'm creating with a first look at/experience of whatever I've made. 
YOU help create the thing itself and then get the instant advance view of it.
Like, when you see my video posted on Youtube or FB
you can say to yourself, "I helped make that."
AND you got the behind the scenes experience.
And other cool stuff like postcards and posters and downloads and and and...

Here's the beauty of Patreon:
I am free to follow whatever creative impulses I have, so anything could happen. Here are the irons currently in my fire:
NEW SINGLES: Jump Go comes out August 9th. And there are two more songs poking at me right now. 
VIDEOS for all the songs on my albums.
SCORPIO BLONDE, a one woman show written around my own songs and covers. 
GREATNESS WAS A WOMAN a new multi media show built off of the art installation you helped fund a few years ago. 

Here's what's happened in the past:

Here is the song and video NOT 4 LONG MF, released through Patreon. 


Here are my two Pre-Patreon videos:


So Patreon made you a fun video:

Important things for you to know:
YOU ONLY PAY WHEN I DELIVER.
You can set a limit on how much money will be charged per month.
I would be shocked, shocked I say, if I make more than one video/single every two months, but you hold the reins on how much you pay.
You can back out at anytime.
You can be fickle and find some other artist to support.
You can decide you don't like the work or just change your mind.
Whatever YOU want.

The deal is... we build this revolution together.  
If I'm contemplating activating your Patreon power for something way out there, I will get your feedback before doing it. Again, this is the all access backstage pass.  And you've got a vote!

OK, the mushy part (but definitely the most important part)
For all the talk about the music industry dying, the relationships artists and patrons are having on this site proves that art and music lovers want quality content and authentic connection with artists. And they're willing to support the artists that deliver. And that warms my heart. Truly.
THANK YOU for stopping by.  
Let's music art love peace revolution together.
