I am currently working on setting up my new Patreon account. What is Patreon you might ask?
Patreon is a way to join your favorite artist’s community and pay them for making the stuff you love. Instead of literally throwing money at your screen (trust me, that doesn’t work), you can now pay a few bucks per creation that a I make. By creation, I mean a music video, recording a single, or creating an entire album. For example, if you pay $2 per video, and I release two videos in October, then your card gets charged a total of $4 that month. This means I get paid regularly (every time I release something new), and you become a bonafide, real-life patron of the arts. That’s right … Imagine you, in a long frilly white wig, painted on a 10-foot canvas on the wall of a Victorian mansion. And imagine me or any of your other favorite artists making a living doing what we do best, all because of you.
A lot of musicians want to be signed to the first label that approaches them or shows some interest in their music, but for me, that is a thing of the past. I don’t want to be owned by a corporate juggernaut and told what I have to do. That’s not why I got into music. I want to be free to write, record, and perform the songs I want and the songs that you enjoy hearing. So please keep an eye out for future news about Patreon and becoming a patron of yours truly and becoming part of the army that provides an avenue for me to produce more music and videos for you!
