We here at You Bred Raptors? have built our history on performance. Where other bands woodshed, drill and make their name in the studio or rehearsal space, we have ALWAYS thrived in public. From our first busking show in 2010 we have made it our ethos to perform, improvise and create in front of crowds. Our songs and sound are built, crafted and evolved in real time in front of strangers. Because of this, our sound takes on a life of its own. With everyone's genuine and honest reactions, both good and bad, we have learned to hone these songs while never letting them get old for us.

You Bred Raptors? has survived this long and gotten a plethora of amazing opportunities thanks to the kindness of our fans and straphangers alike. If they like what we do, they will buy a CD or leave us a tip. Our Patreon page here is an extension of that. Few people outside of the music business lifers understand the upkeep of staying alive in this. Every month we have bills to pay, on top of our personal finances, in the most expensive city in the world. It is also the best place for the band to break through. We strive to stay relevant in a city that makes a sport out of beating artists into the ground. Merch inventory, tolls, gas, website and design maintenance, accountants and time off of work for touring... the list goes on.

Any money you donate will (unfortunately) be put to only good use. As much as we want to buy day-passes for Go-Carting or three matching backpack Super Soaker 250's, we have to be dumb adults about this. With any income we can begin to properly focus on writing more material, pitching ourselves to record labels and booking agencies and continue down the path of making this our full-time job. Until then, we will be busking multiple times a week and touring extensively like clockwork. That will never change. So if you dig what we are doing and want to help, this is the best way.

Thank you for anything and everything! Take care of yourself, and each other.
