About Patrick Ross
Songwriter-Composer, Musician, Music Programmer, Record Producer, Recording Engineer, and Recording Artist. I have worked with many different artist(s) in a variety of genre(s), so when asked what sort of music I am into I simply say MUSIC! Simply MUSIC!
I want to share with you my journey through music. I want to share with you the inspiration, creation, and celebration of life that goes into my music as both an artist and a human being. So come along an join me for our adventure together begins!
I am going to give you a front row seat look behind the scenes of the singer - songwriting process, the creation of the music in the studio, The magic of when the mix begins to gel and the song emerges in the telling of stories about life. My dream is to make songs the whole world sings. So this is my personal invitation to you to become one of my personal patron(s) of the arts in support of the music I create.
Many folks over the years have also asked how best they can support me directly, and some have even urged me to start my own Patreon. The ability to make and release music as and when you envision it, directly to your listeners, is an incredibly powerful and fulfilling opportunity.
Patreon is a platform designed to allow you to become a patron of artist much like myself to gather together fans / patrons who want to support the music I create and to share in the process from vision to reality to airwaves to the stage to the comfort of your living room.
I WANT? You to Become my Patron!
● a person named, and honored as a special supporter
● a patron of the arts, a supporter of the poet-musician
HOW IT WORKS!
With Patreon, you can support my work directly by pledging a dollar amount of your choice for each new thing I create. In exchange for your support, you will have access to the Patrick Ross community where you will be the first to learn what's in the works, receive updates, and will be able to interact with me and other Patrons.
There are also additional levels of support that include song downloads, your name in video / song credits, and even personal dispatches from yours truly.
If there are ever any times when I'm feeling particularly prolific and want to share more than one thing in a month, you can cap your support amount at whatever amount you are comfortable with so you never pay more than you are comfortable with.
It's completely up to you, and you won't miss out on anything!
WHAT IT’S FOR?
These days I primarily write songs and compose music, an art form which is quite ambitious and can also be quite expensive. Historically it was funded through patronage. The process includes composing the work, recording musicians, mixing, mastering and pairing it with artwork and/or promotional material. Your support will enable me to continue to do the work I love, while also enabling me to hire other people to help me bring these projects to life.
I am so excited to get started and hope you will come along for the ride. We can make so much incredible music together! I’m really looking forward to growing my music and getting to know you all a little better. I sincerely appreciate your support!
