You’re in at the ground level. That cup of coffee, a salmon cookie for Oscar and Alice. Parking in downtown Austin or a Nanaimo for a gig. I’ve got the attitude of gratitude. You’re helping me on this journey and I thank you.
Welcome to the family. Thank you for being here. This is a small expense for you but a gigantic boost for me. Enough Flat Pickers and I can pay my bills, take care of my family, and actually get to spend my time making music and giving back to you!

You took the first step up. To dive a little deeper into the creative journey with me and my musical cohorts. When I started playing with a thumb and two fingerpicks, I realized I could pick every string delicately or strum and beat the soup out of with the best of them.

About The Plank

Since I began the journey away from sideman to a full on solo career, my life has been turned upside down by booking agents, managers, social media and streaming gurus, and frankly I have spent more time doing that and felt I have had not enough time to create. Now that I have received modest success enough to know this is what I want to do and that my fans want me to, I find myself in need of an outlet that affords me an artistic path whilst still being able to keep the lights on. That’s where you come in.

Patreon is a very hip platform that facilitates ongoing, direct patronage to all types of creators. Instead of making one pledge, one time, you make a pledge to continually support the artist with each release. How cool is that?

With your help, I will be releasing one new song/recording every month! These songs will be available only to Patreon members until a release date is set for the general public. You will get it first, no matter what, and with different tiers for pledging you can pick the best level for you with all sorts of rewards from tickets to merch and lessons to recordings and videos. Your money will go to everything from recording equipment to putting bones in my dogs’ bowls (that would be Oscar and Alice, the original Sleeping Dogs that will not lie).

I cannot wait to get started, and already have a few months of songs picked out. Can we do this together?
