Wanna be my Sidekick? Rad. Here are the things I share with my Sidekicks for a buck:

1. ORIGINAL SONGS
2. COVER SONGS
3. MUSIC VIDEOS
4. VIDEO JOURNALS
5. LIVE STREAMING CONCERTS
6. TYPEWRITTEN LYRICS & POEMS IN THE MAIL


I've structured this in the "pay-per-post" format,  meaning if I deliver three things to you this month, you'll pay $3 at the end of the month. If I don't post anything this month, you pay nothing this month. But on average, my goal is to release about 1 creation per week. You'll never be charged for more than 4 in a month.


P.S. You're so cool.

Seriously, you're so cool.

About Mike Surber

Hi! I'm Mike Surber, and I write songs—Some rock and roll, some folk, and I've even been known to write a rap or a jingle when the need arrises.

My solo project is called Dear Mr. Henshaw, or you may know me from the Seattle-based rock band Sons of Guns, or the folk duo of my friend Gregory Rawlins and myself known as Foxgloves. I like to play with myself, but it's even more fun to play with my friends. 

Here's what you can expect when you subscribe to my Patreon:
THE PROWLER SESSIONS:
I record and release a new song each week from right here in The Prowler (the 1977 camper trailer I converted into my own little DIY recording studio). These tracks are exclusive to Patrons, who pay one dollar each time I release a new track (you get billed at the end of the month: If I release four songs this month, you get charged $4 at the end). Patreon takes a tiny cut, and the rest goes toward helping me to make more and better music.

And...

THE BONUS STUFF: Monday-Friday, I get up each morning and write the first draft of a new song between 6am and 9am, then I record what I've come up with that morning and upload these "Sunrise Songwriting" videos with you. That's free bonus content., and it's when we get to have coffee together. 🤘🏼😎

WHAT IT MEANS TO BE A PATRON: When become a patron, you get exclusive access to all of the songs and videos I post, and you support my efforts to make another album by paying $1 each time I create a track exclusively for my Patrons. I post the new original song each Sunday evening, but that doesn't always happen when I'm no tour or in the studio— so I wanted to make sure you don't pay anything if/when I don't deliver something for you. (During this time of Covid, I'm clearly not touring, so I'm at your disposal, and I'm loving it). That's why this is a "pay-per-post" thing, rather than a flat monthly subscription.

BOTTON LINE: I never post more than 4 paid videos per month, so if you pledge $1 per post, the most you'll ever be charged in a month is $4.

There are other perks I offer my patrons, and you can certainly contribute more than $1 if you feel compelled (check out the two tiers of my patrons).

Let me know if you have any questions. If you need me, I'll be in The Prowler writing furiously and singing my heart out into a microphone for my next post. 

Xo,
Mike
Goals
59 of 500 patrons
When I reach 500 patrons, I'll be able to record my monthly songs in a top-line studio with a fantastic producer. This would not only be my dream come true, but for you it would mean that the quality of recordings you get each month of my new songs would be increasingly better.
