About Aaron J. Shay

WHO ARE YOU?

Good question. I often ask myself the same thing while drinking alone and staring off into the middle distance at that strange hour between midnight and dawn.

In brief: I'm a writer and performer who has been playing in and around the Seattle area since 2010. The musical projects I have been involved with include The Mongrel JewsStrangely & ShayThe Pickpocket Revue, and The Saint Judas Stringband. I have also been a theatrical composer, and I've written for the arts and culture website Pyragraph. Busy guy!

WHAT ARE YOU DOING WITH THIS CAMPAIGN?

I'm producing demo recordings of new songs. I'm also writing fictional stories, as well as editorial essays about art, technology, and culture!

Also, let's be real, here: I'm trying to afford to live. This is how I want to spend my time, making art and writing words, and this Patreon is one tool I'm employing to achieve that goal!

HOW OFTEN WILL YOU POST NEW STUFF?

I'll release a thing per month, at the most. Each song, story and essay will be made available to backers before release to the general public.

ANYTHING ELSE YOU WOULD LIKE TO TELL US?


I consider a close relationship with my fans to be a crucial part of this whole "arts career" thing, and I hope that this Patreon project will be a good way to continue that relationship. If you are able to spare a few dollars per month, I would greatly appreciate it! If that's not in the cards for you, well, spreading the word about my work would also mean quite a lot to me.

Also, I would like to tell you that your hair looks fabulous today.

Goals
$87 of $100 per month
This goal will guarantee better recording for all songs!

What bills this goal would cover: Phone, Internet, electricity
