ABRIDGED VERSION:


If you like my music, you can help me continue to be a musician by giving me a dollar (or more) every time I release a song. I would be incredibly grateful.

4-PART MINISERIES VERSION:


I make music, mostly in my house. My first and greatest passion is writing my own songs and releasing full-length albums, which continues to be my primary focus. There’s truly nothing I’d rather do with this life than make my feelings rhyme and spend years on end figuring out how to present them most effectively, and I’m fortunate enough to have some people out there who value what I come up with. It blows my mind every day that I get to do this, and I’m endlessly grateful that anyone cares about it. As much as I love this process, however, it frankly doesn’t do much to keep me afloat as a working musician. Also, I only finish an album every few years, which is less often than I want to be sharing music with the world.

Good news, though! I do a lot of things (sing, play a few instruments, record, arrange, produce and mix, for my own music as well as for other musicians) and the world is full of songs. I’m always working toward the next album, but in the meantime, I record a lot of covers, plus occasional demos or reimaginations of my older tunes. This allows me to continue creating, reaching folks, and learning something new with every song.

Even better news! Thanks to Patreon and the incredibly generous people who opt to support me here, this process empowers me to continue living as a full time independent musician who not only sings songs but also pays rent, eats meals, and even goes to the dentist now and then. (Turns out it’s hard to do that first thing without all the other things.) If you want to help me keep doing what I’m doing and can afford to contribute, you can pledge $1 or more for every song I release here. I try to keep a pace of 1-2 songs a month.

Holy hell, more good news! It’s almost too much! As a patron, you’ll get access to my patron-only stream. You’ll typically hear songs before anyone else, and I always write a little bit about the song, what it means to me, how I approached it, or whatever’s in my head surrounding that recording.

Your support truly means the world to me, whether it's patronage or simply showing up with your ears and hearts. Thank you over and over forever.
