We need to do this together.

Keep the legend alive. Support The Floating Men with a monthly contribution that connects the past to the present as we move into our fourth decade.

Exclusive Blog Posts.  Join the conversation as we muse about the past, ramble about the present, and think toward the future.  Over the decades - yes, decades - we've collected stories and legends from the road. We'll relive the most notorious and disturbing moments (you know who you are) in regular blog posts.

Vintage Merch. Limited time, limited stock! We've got some vintage-era merch that we need to move. Tall Shadows tee, signed and numbered Boot 2, Haunting babydoll tees, even a lunchbox or two. All to be made available to Patreons only while supplies last.

From the Archives:
Every month, you can stream and download rare, unheard and/or previously unreleased recordings from master tapes, studio outtakes, demos, instrumentals, live soundboard recordings and more. It's all been stored in boxes, crates, tubs and files in the darkened corners of our closets and PCs/Macs for decades, and we'll finally drag it out for you.

Early Access.  You'll have early access to repackaged, reiussed and expanded versions of classic TFM albums. We're starting with Tall Shadows and moving through the entire catalog.

Ask us Anything.  Literally anything. We'll host quarterly Q&A sessions with Holmes, Evans and occasionally the satellite members of the TFM Family.

About The Floating Men

When you know, you know. And you know. You were there.

Daredevil? Bold? Unpredictable? Exhilarating? You know, you were there.

Miles of decades and decades of miles, indeed. There’s a lot to unravel from 20 years of careening and veering through stages and studios across the American musicscape. We counted on you then and we’re counting on you now. We need to do this together. Let’s sort through the legends and lore and drill down to the essential joy of the Floating Men experience, from the prayerful and profane, the irreverence and dignity, to the relentless and the blissful.

Forever the underdogs, underrecognized, underfunded and downright unknown to so many, we endured hardship and privation by day for the privilege of soaring with you onstage every night. You were worth it, we were worth it, and we both knew it. It mattered. Your story and our story are eternally intwined.

Please join us. Let’s make it count.

Since forming in 1990, Nashville legends The Floating Men have become one of the most influential indie acts in the Eastern US, releasing ten critically-acclaimed studio albums and a bevy of officially-authorized bootlegs. Their songs are covered by young performers all over the country, their lyrics are discussed in college classrooms, and they have inspired innumerable songwriters, musicians, and poets.

Supported by a ravenously loyal cult of road-tripping followers (self-dubbed The Floatilla), The Floating Men continued to stretch musical boundaries on their 2002 CD release, A Magnificent Man, and on their 2004 release The Haunting, The Floatilla, as their fans are known, became "Executive Producers" of individual tracks by paying as much as $1,000 per team to watch The Floating Men record a batch of character-rich songs.

“The Sighing Hours Act I: No Clocks, No Calendars” (2009) is the fifth consecutive studio album fully funded by their enthusiastic fan base. Act II "The Sighing Hours: Swimming with Gods" was released later in Summer 2009.

Since 2001, Jeff and Scot have been joined on stage and in the studio by Steve Ebe on drums, David Steele and Chris Cottros on guitars, Jody Nardone on keyboards, and background vocalists Andra Moran and Eva Hunter.

The band does not currently have any live performances planned but provide Patreon supporters with exclusive content that ranges from new livestream performances to unreleased material from their deeply-stocked archive.
