Hey there, rock-n-rollers! We're Chip & The Charge Ups!

We call our music electrifying East Coast power pop.

We’ve been together for a little over a year and have released two albums. For the first year, we used our program on Patreon.com to give our most enthusiastic fans the new music before public release.

But, for our second year, we’re doing something even more special. We have recorded an acoustic album called “Flow of the Acoustic Current” that we will be releasing ONLY to members of our Patreon program.

Every month, members will receive a track from this acoustic album that will not be available anywhere else! Not on Spotify. Not on Apple Music. Not on YouTube. Not on CD, vinyl, cassette, 8-track or any other media. Only on Patreon!

We're gonna mix it up: some songs will stay pretty true to their electric originals, some will be insanely creative REIMAGINATIONS of our songs, you may hear a cover or two, and you'll get at least one song that isn't on ANY of our albums yet!

Every month, you'll be surprised by the song you get...listening will be like opening a surprise gift on Christmas morning!

These tracks are part of EVERY tier of membership, even the $1 a month tier.

If you’re not familiar with Patreon, it’s a new and very simple way to be a part of an artist’s creative journey. You pay a monthly amount to become a member of our program – called a patron - and you get content from us every single month. The content you get depends on the reward tier you select.

There are five tiers of rewards available. At the lowest tier, for just $1 a month, you will get a new MP3 of a song from “Flow of the Acoustic Current” every single month.

The higher the tier, the more rewards you’ll get. The other tiers include things like access to our fun monthly group video chats, your name in the credits of our videos, handwritten and serial numbered lyrics mailed to you, and a custom song that we’ll personally write and professionally record just for you for every year that you’re a patron!

And every dollar that we make through Patreon will be put right back into our recording budget so that we can continue to crank out fun music for you well into the future! You’ll have the great feeling that comes along with knowing that you are directly supporting the birth of new music – possibly your next favorite song!

To start accessing these great rewards immediately, just click the “Become A Patron” button on our Patreon page. After you check out, return to the "Posts" section where you can download your first song today!

Thanks so much for checking out our Patreon program. We hope you love the music Chip & The Charge Ups has waiting just for you!
