The Orchardist is creating folklore

Hey, friends! You might've heard we're on going on tour this summer. Last winter we released our first album, which we recorded ourselves and are so excited to share with everyone on the road. We're here to tell you that even if you can't come with us on the road, you can still come with us!

See, our album is just the tip of the iceberg. There's so much more beneath the surface! Underneath the songs are layers and layers of stories, conversations, ideas, and characters that bind our songs together - our own little folklore. We've decided that on tour we want to share not only our songs, but also this folklore that's at the heart of what we do. So for each week of the tour this summer, there will be a featured bit of "folklore," short stories and songs, trinkets marking the development of our music. On the road, we will present these trinkets to our audiences at our shows. Online, we will release them to you through Patreon.com.

Whether on Patreon.com or in real life, here's why we need you to be our Patron: we believe that music is a gift. Absolutely. With this conviction we have structured our tour so that we don't have to demand payment for anything. Every detail, every album or poster will be sold by a donation or name-your-own-price basis. To not only make this tour happen but to stay true to who we are and to what music is, we must trust that the gift will be returned to us.


As a Patron on Patreon.com, you decide what you wish to give per week throughout this tour. And the money we receive from this campaign will go towards sparkly, polished recordings of two brand new songs from an actual studio. Similarly to Kickstarter, depending on what amount you give, we will include you in the recording process of these songs more and more from conception to completion by sending you demos, updates, and mixes from our studio sessions.


You can be our Patrons, and we don't take that lightly. You are some of our sweetest friends. Your support means the world to us and we want nothing more than to include you in what we make and what we love and all of our shenanigans. Check out our rewards system to see how you can support us, and hopefully we'll see you on the road! Bye, friends!

$113 of $250 per week
As much as we've cherished our recording sessions in Drew's dorm room, the opportunity to work in an actual studio is too good to pass up. With the money received from this campaign we'll record two brand new songs, "All of Me" and "Bleeding Heart," in a local studio, pulling out all the stops to get them shiny and polished. A portion of donations will also help us cover traveling expenses during our upcoming six-week tour. So basically, you can help us not starve and sound beautiful.
