A Quick Summary:
HELLO FRIENDS and LOVERS of MUSIC!
Thank you so much for stopping by and checking out our Patreon!
What you get?
By joining me on Patreon you receive a membership to music created to inspire and uplift your heart and soul. In addition to publicly released music and videos you will receive exclusive access to unreleased music, Patreon only behind the scenes.
Why should I become your Patron?
Because I believe that music makes the world a better place and that music is good for you. Therefore, you should support me to make music for you.
So what is it? As long as we have had arts and music there have been patrons of the arts, people who support artists to create art. Patreon is a modern twist on this ancient concept and creates an online platform for people to support the artists they love. I am here because I believe Patreon can help me to focus on growing my musical career creatively and financially.
I always felt like music chose me. It is something so deep in my heart that pushes me, that calls on me to create and share music with the world. I spent years on the road, living in my van, traveling across the globe and have met so many incredible people along the way. It is not always an easy path and I have struggled at times with the uncertainty of it all, financially and otherwise.
A few years ago my wife Andrea and I started to grow our home recording studio (Magic Cottage Studios) working with incredible talented artists producing albums and creating videos. This has been hugely rewarding and has helped to create a grounded feeling that was missing before. But, it has caused me to put my music on the back burner and something has been calling to me to re-commit to composing and recording my own music. So many of you have asked me what is next. In searching for answers how to do that while creating a sustainable future for me and my family I found Patreon.
I believe music is medicine for our mind, heart and soul.
Music has been a healer and a friend for me since I was a child. Many of you have told me that my music reminds you of nature and that it helps you to relax, to concentrate, to meditate, to make love, to practice yoga, to soothe the children and even put the baby to sleep. That makes me happy and is the complete manifestation of my intention which is that the music serves to benefit you in a positive way. This is why I am dedicated to creating and sharing my music.
This project brings together my passion for music, nature and film as I collaborate with my talented wife, filmmaker Andrea Boston. Our goal is to take you on a journey and create music videos that are inspiring and create a sense of connection to the sacredness of nature, our earth and to ourselves.
When you support our project through Patreon you choose a pledge amount for each music video we release ($1, $3, $7 or any amount you choose per video). If you feel inspired you can contribute larger amounts of money to receive more access and exclusive content. We plan to release two videos a month, sometimes more, sometimes less. You can always create a max monthly budget, make changes or cancel anytime.
Where your money goes:
Your money goes directly to the creation of new music and videos to pay for :
- Travel Costs - all our videos are filmed on location in beautiful places in nature, we would love to take you with us to national parks and our favorite locations in California and beyond. We would love to hear your suggestions for beautiful places we should visit.
- Musicians - the goal is to collaborate with world class musicians who can help take the music to an even higher level.
- Production Costs- while we do most of the production ourselves there are additional costs for mastering engineers, editors etc for certain projects.
- Tools of Our Craft - maintenance and upgrades of microphones, cables, cameras, memory cards, general gear. It is our goal to create at the highest production level possible.
Please reach out if you have any questions or ideas....
