Hi, I'm Declan Ramsay and I put out music as The Lucid Effect. TLE has just released it's 2nd EP and gone on its first tour, which is super rad.

When I put out this new EP I did something I hadn't done before, which is charge a minimum amount to download it. I'm really for having music being accessible and available to all, but also I was curious as what kind of effect having a small paywall would do to people downloading it. What I found is that the people who pay for it were incredibly generous in their support, but the overall amount of people downloading it dropped pretty significantly compared to my first EP as The Lucid Effect, which had no minimum price.

With that in mind, I'm giving Patreon a go. It means for you awesome people who can & want to support me financially can do so, people who can't support me financially can still get this music, and I can hopefully get some money together to make more things! From orchestral scores, to music as The Lucid Effect, to quantum-physics inspired vocal pieces (parallel universes for the win), to terrible love songs for Republican Candidates ("I'm a Gamblin' Man But You've Trumped My Heart"), I have a huge bunch of projects that I am really excited to get started on.

So thank you for supporting me.
let's make stuff.

Thank you, you're supporting my music and that means so much to me. You'll get access to the patron-only feed; I'll post stuff, rough demos and you'll get to hear things before they go live to the masses.
Pledge $3 or more per thing
You'll get access to the patron-only feed, plus you'll get emailed an MP3 copy of all the things I make through Patreon.
Pledge $5 or more per thing
As above, and you'll also get a fully recorded song about anything you want. I do warn you however, I do mean anything. Yes, that. I will sing and write about that.
Pledge $10 or more per thing
This is heaps of money to be putting towards a musician, so you'll get all of the above AND half-price on all physical releases/merch. I'll also tell your mum that you are rad.
Pledge $20 or more per thing
ALL OF THE THINGS ABOVE, and we can sort out something else, special for you. Want a live show in your house? Want lessons for guitar over Skype? Want to stare in to each other's eyes for hours on end? I don't know what you're in to but we'll do it.
Goals
$13 of $25 per thing
A project I'm really looking forward to starting to share is The Year Project, which as the name implies a year-long project of songs. I'll be releasing 1 song a month for a year, capturing the spirit of that month. Reaching this goal will help cover some of the costs for the instrument and sample libraries I'll be using particularly for this project (WOO ORCHESTRA!)
