I never assumed I’d end up singing songs in front of people when I was younger, but here I am. Music, back then, was something personal. When I plugged headphones into a little CD Walkman, listening to an album I drove 40 miles to the nearest Circuit City to get, the meditative power of listening got etched into my brain. It was the comfort of great rock and roll, loud drums with good feel, but mostly hearing yourself in the lyrics in a way that you hadn’t thought to express it. There is still magic floating around out there, and I’m tracking it down. 
Fifteen years later, I’m writing and recording songs so someone else can find him or herself in there, or maybe even someone they know. 
The genre I seem to work in has been called “Americana” or “folk” or “alt-country,” but it is what it is. I just sing the way I’ve learned how and play what I like to hear. I’m not peddling in belt buckles and porkpie hats to give anybody nostalgic vibes for the ‘good old days.’ I like to read, and I like getting inside a character’s head, and I love language most of all. 
Thanks for bearing with me. Heed the call if you’re called, and take care!
Tiers
Change (My Mind)
$5 or more per month 0 patrons
By pledging this much per month, you'll get access to patron-only posts once per month (at least), and my unending gratitude that you're willing to pay for art in the digital age.
Local Support(er)
$10 or more per month 1 patron
At this tier, you'll get access to all patron-exclusive posts plus an extra new song link once a month. For the price of two Starbucks pumpkin spice drinks, you get the satisfaction of knowing I get to eat something besides rice and beans for a change! So if you, the "Local Support(er)," wants to meet up at any waffle house, just say the word.
Mississippi Hallelujah
$30 or more per month 1 patron
Why don't we just say "amen" for you! There's love in the air and I definitely shall reciprocate it, in the form of all aforementioned benefits plus private links to my new unreleased (expensive sounding) record _Local Support_, and private streaming links to any new songs I record as they happen. You'll also get an exclusive live video once a month to soothe your beautiful heart.
Goals
$50 of $200 per month
When I reach $200 per month, I'll be able to tour consistently without worryitn being able to pay my student loans. You millennials know this plight. I've made a record called Local Support. I just need to get it out and spread the good news. When I meet this goal I'll be so much closer at spreading that news.
