Who/What/When

I am blessed to make music for a living. Most of it is "behind the glass" (as they used to say), producing other artists. Beyond the requisite technical and people skills/experience, my strength as a producer stems from being an artist myself. Over the years I have only recorded a small fraction of the music I have written, but (at the risk of vanity - though "all is vanity") the past few years of my life have presented me with an equation that can only be solved by a new paradigm of proliferation. Patreon has developed the missing variable - a platform that can now realize this paradigm.

Where/Why

There is a place where joy and sorrow intersect; where beauty and suffering conjoin. I stumbled upon this place in my youth and it has been my secret home ever since. This place is the lens through which I view the world. It is the place from which I write, sometimes with words, sometimes without.

How

This is an invitation to those who wish to support my creative work. If you resonate with my music and creative vision (however abstract), your patronage will complete the circuit. Patreon allows you to pledge a dollar amount per song. Your card will only be charged when I publish a new song as a "paid post." I plan to release one song per month, but you can set a per-month limit to protect your budget in case I have a prolific streak. I have set rewards based on what is important to me in supporting an artist that inspires me.

This is built around a free-trade philosophy with no strings attached. You can change or cancel your pledge at any time, or if you happen to dislike a song to the point of wanting a refund, I will gladly honor that out of respect for your patronage. Furthermore, as a patron, your ideas will be valuable to me in shaping the development of this new paradigm, so I look forward to your joining me in this journey.
