What's up peeps!
I'm austen timothy elms,
a monkey (and also musician, singer/songwriter, producer, etc. if you're curious). If you're interested enough in what I'm doing to meet me here, let me say thank you. Without the support and friendship of you wonderful people in the world, I would neither be able to do what I'm doing nor find the inspiration to sustain it. I'm honored to be on this journey with fantastic people like yourself.

Creating music and letting it out into the wild for your listening pleasure is what I want to do forever. And ever. And ever and ever and ever. Amen. However, as you may well know, making music is not exactly a cash cow. While it is primary to my identity and a source of boundless fascination, music is difficult to do for a living. Things like instruments, home studio gear, and a plethora of software all cost real dollars, but the biggest investment is time. With enough funding, I would be able to spend more time doing what I love instead of what I suffer through to pay bills (simply the worst, AMIRITE?) Which brings us to Patreon.

How this Patreon thing works: You can decide to pledge any amount–as low as $1!–for each song I release. You can cancel your patronage or adjust your pledge amount at any point. You can also set a monthly max so that you never spend more than you're comfortable with. We operate on the crock-pot model–set it and forget it! There are different perks for different commitments, such as exclusive patron content, early access to song downloads, individual track stems, regular online hangouts, and more. These are listed to the right, so feel free to go through them and decide which level of patronage you like. In essence, by becoming a patron at any level you will have an exclusive window into my mind and creative process.

From the bottom of my heart, thank you.
Your support in any amount will make it possible to create better material and make it far more often. I'm deeply grateful. Here's to many extraordinary experiences ahead of us!

Goals
$76 of $250 per month
Reaching this goal would give me the revenue to invest more in the equipment and software needed for higher-quality productions. It will also allow me to create more music more frequently. The current balance of a full-time job and a scatterbrained side hustle is pretty inefficient, as it turns out.
