About Kim Ware and the Good Graces

The tl;dr:
Greetings, patrons and potential patrons! I'm Kim and I write words and often shape them into songs. It's my favorite means of connecting with people. We need more honest, real connections, so I've joined Patreon to share my songs and stories with you. Every single bit contributed will help me make music and art, and I'm profoundly grateful that you're here!

The Whole She-Bang:
Greetings, patrons and potential patrons! I'm Kim and I write words and often shape them into songs. It's my favorite thing. The coolest part? I often feel like an awkward communicator (that's not the cool part. Read on.). I leave conversations and think "why did I say that?" or just have a feeling I wasn't as clear as I needed to be. I almost always want a redo; I over-explain, or feel like I don't explain enough. But songs, songs are my jam. Being able to express so much in 3-to-4 minutes is pretty amazing. 

I've been writing songs since 2007. Over the past 10+ years, I've learned that I'm a happier, healthier, better-adjusted person when I make intentional space for prioritizing songwriting in my life. So with this in mind, I'd love your help!  

So what should you expect here? Well, I've recently completed a new album, and already started on its follow-up!. I've been posting snippets, rough mixes, and will also be posting the mastered tracks here, before they are actually released. Additionally, the higher tiers will have access to some fun things like:

  • Everything Is Folked Fridays! 
    I think every song could be made a folk song. I like playing around with covers and "making them my own." I do this to a different song every Friday!
  • Shrubs and Jerky!
    Huh? Shrubs and Jerky was the name I gave a live stream I did on Facebook in the middle of the 2020 ughs. My husband is an amazing chef; he made me a "shrub" cocktail and some vegan jerky. I played some songs, tried his shrub and jerky creations, we talked about it online. It was fun! It was goofy! Those are things we need more of, me thinks. These are exclusive Zoom parties, for patrons only. 
  • Wednesday Deep Dives
    I love writing songs, and I've collected a whole bunch of them over the years. It can be very rewarding to look back at how some of my favorite song children came to be, how they were recorded, and how they've since evolved. So I'll be doing that every Wednesday(ish). Sounds pretty interesting, yes?
  • And more!
    I really want to hear what you're interested in. I sing songs, I write poetry and prose, I do yoga, I meditate, I read, I run (well, jog), I eat (mostly) vegan food. I spoil my cats (a lot). Who I am is all of these things, and more, and I like sharing all of it. 

Regardless of where this goes, I appreciate your considering spending a bit of virtual time in this here little corner. Know that anything you contribute will go directly to my creating and releasing songs and art out into the universe. I think that's important. And if you want to learn more about what you're getting into, I invite you to check out my website: www.thegoodgraces.org. You can also find my music on all the streaming sites, but I'd love it if you visited my Bandcamp. Questions, comments, concerns? Send them over to [email protected]. Thank you so much for being here!

Goals
17 of 20 patrons
I'd love to reach 20 patrons! I've been making some acoustic recordings to share with folks who play with me, and was thinking it would be cool to share them here, too! So when I reach 20 patrons, I'll do just that. Regardless of tier, everyone will get a batch of home recorded, acoustic tunes. Some will be on the upcoming new album, and some are so new that they won't be -- the only recording that will exist for a while will likely be this!
