Hey friends! Welcome to my Patreon page. I'm so happy you're here. 

Would you like to...
  • Hear and download unreleased songs that you may have heard live but aren't on my album?
  • Come on tour with me (virtually) with exclusive access to behind-the-scenes photos, videos, and blog posts?
  • Get fun presents like stickers, postcards, and the juicy details about my songs - just for supporting the arts?
This is where all of those things will happen.

I hope you've been enjoying my debut album, "Free". All of the songs reflect a longing to be free and/or actually freeing ourselves from expectations, destructive relationships, places we don't belong, and anything else that makes us feel trapped. The songs were inspired by my 30,000 mile solo-cross country quest, after quitting my nine-to-five job as a nonprofit professional for a dishwashing job at Yellowstone National Park. You can read more about that here.

With the album being almost a year old now, I want to keep giving you fresh, new material - even some of "Free" as live, solo acoustic recordings, reinterpreted a bit for a more intimate feel. So much has happened since the album was released, and I've got lots of new songs. I'll also bring you along on my tours so you can see what it's like being on the road, and be part of what you might miss at a show 3,000 miles away.

Patreon is a great way to support artists in an age when we can't expect to make money on album sales, when gigging can be unsteady and barely enough income to live off of, and when we have to make a lot of sacrifices for our craft. By becoming a patron of my music, you're not only signing up to get new material, you're also showing that you believe in the value of art. I hope that if mine has inspired you, you'll help me to keep creating more.

I plan to release a piece about once a month, so if you pledge $5 per song, that's only $5 per month. You can also choose a monthly limit, so that if I release more than one piece in a month, you'll only be charged what you're comfortable with. The greater your pledge level, the more gifts you will receive. You'll also get a free video when you sign up!

Thank you so much for your support!
