Be sure to check out all the rewards!  On a desktop, they can be found on the right side of the page - and scroll down!

If you're on mobile, click the orange "Become a patron" button to see all of the rewards or scroll to the bottom of the page.  There are a lot of them!

If everyone interested in seeing new content from me every month simply put in one dollar, we'd reach the funding goal in a matter of a couple weeks or less!   If you feel you get a dollar value from my music and videos every month, consider taking a few minutes to make the pledge!  You'll get a lot more than a dollar's worth from the rewards!  Thank you for your support!
* You won't be charged until the 1st of the following month from when you pledge.  

The Basics:  If you enjoy listening to my music or watching my videos and would be happy to see more content from me in the future, you've come to the right place!  Here you will not only be able to help ensure the continuation and growth of my music, but you can also become an integral part of its creation.  I'm excited at the prospects of getting to know you better in a more interactive environment - not to mention the creative possibilities for the future once the funding goal is reached!

What is Patreon?  Patreon is similar to Kickstarter but, instead of making one large pledge to help fund a single project, Patreon is all about micro-payments that keep an artist's work funded over a longer period of time.  This means more new content, more often.  It also means patrons receive rewards every month!  I am very excited about the new rewards and the possibilities for future new rewards.  There is more about that below, or take a look to the right to see the rewards themselves. 

For just one dollar, you can be instrumental in my ability to create new music and my freedom to expand creatively in all of the new content I release.  The bottom line is that you can be a direct influence in how much music I'm able to create.  This isn't just about the short term.  Having proper funding means that I will end up with a larger discography overall.  That means more music, more videos, more guitar tabs and more backing tracks.  But the best part is that I will be able to spend more uninterrupted time working on the creative aspects of my music and videos.  So this isn't just about making more music and videos, it's also about creating better and higher quality content overall. 

How to become a Patron:  Becoming a Patron is both quick and easy.  Simply click the "Become a Patron" button.  You'll immediately be taken to a page where you can enter your pledge amount and/or choose a reward.  Continue from there to a very quick sign-up page.  Check your e-mail for the confirmation, enter your PayPal or card information and you're done!  You can easily change your pledge, or even remove it completely, at any time. 

What's my goal?  I'm looking to get into a position where I can focus the majority of my time and creative energy on music. The achievement of that goal will allow me to increase both the quantity and quality of my music, my videos, my tabs and transcriptions as well as opening up the possibilities for things like collaborations and more. Not to mention the ability for me to finally go on tour in your area, making a special point to meet Patrons (like you) when you come to live performances. Right now my time is spread pretty thin. In my current situation, I have to take on all the jobs within a business that markets and sells music and music related products. And, of course, that's all in addition to being the musician and producer that's creating all of that material.  I can't tell you how frustrating it is to have all my creative energy burned up year after year on the business side of selling my music.  I have so much more to offer as an artist and I'd very much like the opportunity to finally explore that potential and share the fruits of it with you.  Reaching this goal will be a giant step in that direction.

Why do I need funding? I'm sure it's not difficult to imagine how much time I need to create a song and video.  But what you might not know is that I do everything myself including every aspect of production.  This includes writing or arranging the song, writing and recording the guitar parts, keyboard parts, bass guitar parts, drum parts (played by myself and never programmed), etc. - not to mention video shoots, video editing, mixing and mastering the audio.  Even listing all of these jobs doesn't do justice to what goes into a single song and video.  Altogether, it takes me between 60 and 90+ hours to produce a single song and video.  However, right now the majority of my time and creative energy is used up by the necessity of running a business surrounding my music - and that's just to stay afloat each month.  The amount of work required in marketing, sales, bookkeeping, etc. far exceeds that of my current production time.  And even with all of that, I'm barely profitable.  Suffice to say, there's a reason why musicians traditionally had businesses behind them that took care of those jobs.  It can be very difficulty to access inspiration when trying to juggle so many things all the time.  When we reach the funding goal I will be able to spend the majority of time on what I believe I do best - making music.

Rewards:  This is easily the best part.  The rewards are not only a way for me to thank you for ensuring the continuation of my music and helping me to grow as an artist, but they also make it possible for me to make the overall process more interactive.  This means getting to know you better and even working together on some special collaborations in the future.  The rewards are also a platform that I can constantly build on and try out new ideas.  My goal is to bring you into the process more and more as we move forward.  I can't wait!

Be sure to check out all of the rewards on the right side of the page - or scroll down to see them on mobile.  Don't forget to check back regularly to see what's new.  I will post updates every time I add a new reward and Patrons will be made aware of these changes automatically.  

I can't tell you how much I appreciate your support, even if it's just through listening to my music, watching my videos, or sharing my content online.  If you are able to make that dollar pledge, you have my eternal gratitude. Let me add that your support is not only greatly appreciated but it also makes you a permanent part of every piece of music that I produce from here on out.

Thank you again!
Dan

Goals
$122 of $1,500 per month
Once we reach the $1500 mark, I will be able to focus all my time and energy on what I believe I do best - which is making music.  This means a dramatic increase in new music and videos as well as other content, including collaborations and more.  To be more precise, this will be an additional 100+ hours a month I can dedicate to music and music related projects instead of running a business surrounding my music as I'm required to do now - which currently takes up the majority of my time.  As always, I will create complete tabs and backing tracks for each song. When we reach the goal, I will also be doing exclusive Q+A streaming events/online performances every month - available to all reward tiers.   On top of that, I'll remove all ads from my YouTube videos!  No more interruptions in playlists!
