Buck Up is my brand new album, and WE just funded its release through Patreon!!!! I couldn't be happier or more honored. Thank you for coming on this album-release journey with me!

Now, I'll continue to use Patreon as I always have: a place to share everything new that I make (songs, videos, essays, etc), and to seek support for the day-to-day activities of being a working musician and writer. I'll post tons of exclusive (and non-exclusive) content here throughout the month, and keep all of you updated on my daily life (touring! Writing! Recording! Goofing off!). The revenue will go towards the many expenses of being a working artist (car maintenance, guitar strings, food) as well as the still-unpaid expenses of the album release (ongoing publicity, tour support, paying off the merchandise I ordered back in Feb).

If you love my work and want to support me, Patreon is the #1 best way to do that. You will be charged once/month (as little as $3), but will receive my love and gratitude (and new work) throughout!

Magic chicken
$3 or more per month
For the price of a single non-fancy coffee, you can join the music industry ecosystem as this adorable pink chicken, hunting and pecking for my self-doubt, then washing it down with gravel to aid digestion. With you around, I wake up refreshed, unmolested by demons, and ready to face another day in the music industry jungle.
Super turtle
$5 or more per month
For the price of one fancy coffee (or a non-fancy beer), you can enter the music industry ecosystem as this excellent lavender turtle. Your surprising secret powers include: funding my art, making my day, and subtly contributing to the death of the last record labels (don't be sad, it's the dawn of a new epoch).
Mindblowing butterfly
$10 or more per month
Butterflies may seem innocent and sweet, but that's only because we avoid thinking about the fact that their midlife crises involve building a sturdy sleeping bag in which to cozy up and liquify their own organs, just so they might wake up one day able to fly. You are an inspiration to us all.
Bird of paradise
$20 or more per month
Early European explorers believed that you never landed, but were carried through the air by your feathers until the end of your brief, miraculous life. Your mysterious mating rituals give you a direct line to all the erotic gods - from Aphrodite to Tlazolteotl - which makes you impossibly beautiful, frightfully powerful, and super hot.
Dream rhino
$50 or more per month
You walk around like it ain't no thing, but your very presence protects me from the ravages of the unforgiving music business environment. With a twitch of your stubby tail, my troubles scatter like meerkats on the savannah. But your secret is, you're a pacifist! You only eat leaves! Yet everyone respects you. Is it your gravitas? Your dreamy allure of secret magic? Or, is it the fact that you have three toes per foot? 
Inscrutable creature of beauty and grace
$100 or more per month
Are you an antelope? A reindeer? A caribou? Or are you something else... something too magnificent, too brilliant, too awe-inspiring to comprehend. Are you... perhaps... an angel?
Comfort pegasus
$250 or more per month
Sometimes, at night, I hear something creeping and I start awake. I begin to weep, softly. I wonder, can I make it through another night in the music industry jungle? With the scorpions, and the howler monkeys, the ghosts of fallen talents and bones of record labels rattling around my bed? And then there is you. You swoop into my dreams, give me a nuzzle, and we go for a ride through the stars.
