About

Starting in February 2020:

WELCOME TO "G.T. PATREON PHASE II"

...in which I continue expanding my life as a One-Woman-Band (and Puppet?!), here to inspire you along the way!

During "G.T. PATREON PHASE I" (July - November, 2019)– my Patrons supported me in releasing a NEW G.T. THOMAS ALBUM, creating a NEW SOLO ACT as ONE-WOMAN-BAND, and sending me on TOUR in the US!!! Woo-hoo! 🎉
(Read how Phase I went down in this post that celebrates it :))


ONWARD TO PHASE II !
20-Feb-2020: Over the coming days, I will reveal the final 2 (of 4) things I'm committed to making real during the new phase of things around here!



The first thing I did after the first phase ended was I released a music video for my single, "Future Moving," featuring myself in puppet form:

It was a hit amongst G.T. Thomas fans, who seemed enthusiastic to hear a story from a life perhaps lived right around the corner from Sesame Street, with comments like:

"Awesome puppet, great video! Laughed out loud when the two backup-vocalist puppets showed up." ~ TS

"So great! I loved this video! So well done... :D CONGRATS! I hope it blows up!!!" ~ SC

"[A] free-flowing breath of fresh air." ~ AT
And so:

In PHASE II, I WILL RELEASE AT LEAST ONE MORE PUPPET MUSIC VIDEO.

PATRONS will enjoy not only the opportunity to view the video IN ADVANCE of the rest of the world, but also get to see posts and shares from behind-the-scenes/ making-of, sketches, and concept ideas not shared elsewhere online, and early access to a special "video-related artifact" I'm currently designing.





After the first video release, I decided to add a few shows in the NW of the US, to kind of "round out" my NE shows. Because I had learned something from my first ever solo tour:
PLAYING LIVE is an undeniably important component of what I do. (What good is honing my craft and making all this music if I’m not doing my part to bring it TO people/ give them opportunities to access it?)

And so:

In PHASE II, I WILL PLAY AT LEAST 13 SHOWS.

PATRONS will be invited to join me in a "Show: Booked!" celebratory ritual I will start carrying out every time a booking is confirmed (in fact, keep an eye out for one really soon!). It revolves around fluorescent paint and is reminiscent of getting a big sticker as a reward every time I pull off a booking.





Right at the end of 2019, I decided to dream big about what I really want this year, and I decided there was one artist in particular who I really wanted to share a bill with for one of my 13 shows...

And so:

In PHASE II, I WILL PLAY AT LEAST ONE SHOW WITH A SPECIFIC ARTIST WHO HAS BEEN A HUGE SOURCE OF INSPIRATION TO ME (name will be revealed to patrons first, so join-up to find out!)

Sign up as a PATRON at any tier to follow my pursuit of going after what I really want, even though it seems scary and/or impossible, and how that turned out in this instance!!  I'll definitely be detailing my process of booking said show and I DARE HOPE: it WILL get you revved up about following your own desires, even though they may seem intimidating to you.

(Patrons at the $11 or higher tiers have ALREADY heard the name of this artist! And as of 23-Feb-2020, ALL patrons will find out this, and the entire back-story and my perspective on the process of making this happen.)

1) WHEN WILL THE REMAINING COMMITMENTS OF PHASE II BE ANNOUNCED?
By March 1, 2020, all 4 commitments will be made known.


2) HOW LONG DOES PHASE II TAKE?
That's entirely up to how much income I'm able to generate right here thanks to the greatly valued involvement of patrons!

Less income generated here = higher likelihood I have to waste time serving up lattes a few days a week, which (it should go without saying) significantly slows down the progess on the things I am setting out to do during Phase II.

More income generated here = more hours I can devote (in keeping with the not-uncommonly 40-hours per week I've managed since April of 2019) devoted to making all of these components of Phase II a reality.



3) I CAN'T SIGN UP NOW, HOW ELSE CAN I SUPPORT YOU?
You can send "tips" in any amount you like to:
paypal.me/gtthomas
Even a one time contribution of a small amount helps!!

Also, please follow me on social media:
instagram.com/gtthomasmusicandart
facebook.com/gtthomasmusic
youtube.com/gtthomasmusic

4) CAN I CHANGE MY TIER FROM ONE MONTH TO THE NEXT?
YES! If you need any assistance doing so, please just send me a note, but I'm happy to help you with this to make sure you are pledging at an amount that is right-fit for you.


SPECIAL NOTES ABOUT BENEFITS:
* Every tier gets not only the benefits listed in its own description, but also that of the tiers preceding it.

* Please take note of the "GOALS" section to see even MORE benefits patrons receive, if certain financial milestones are reached each month!

*To thank you for signing up during Phase II, up through May 1 of 2020, I'm offering this
SPECIAL BONUS GIFT to anyone who joins at the €11 tier or higher: Get a physical copy (includes digital download) of my new album "I Am a Highlighter Pen"!

If you aren't ready to become a patron, you can always CLICK HERE to simply support me one, single time in the form of ordering your copy of the album that my Patrons helped make possible! (It's more pricey than joining at the €11 level, but hey: you do you.)

Thank you SO MUCH for your curiosity and interest in what I'm doing! Please reach out if you have any questions or if there's anything about the tiers and their benefits you're uncertain about, let me know!!

Goals
$128 of $287 per month
~~LIVE-STREAM: PERFORMANCE~~
Earning $287 per month would cover the cost of my commute + rent at my studio space.

When these base studio expenses are taken care of, all additional financial resources go straight to the odds and ends needed for the actual development of my new skills and creations that I'm focusing on in Phase II of this Patreon.

Having commute and rent covered is THE DREAM! So I'm gonna do a live-stream of me performing some music for you every month in which we reach this goal!
