About

Hello! This is Michael Rider. I am a singer-songwriter from New York city. Thank you for visiting my Patreon page! As an independent artist, I don’t work a label, manager, or any agent. I rely solely on the support of my fans to make my projects a reality.

I have been running this Patreon since May of 2019. During that span of time, I have raised $1,150.37. I want to take a second to thank everyone who has pledged during that time, you’re support means more than you will ever know!

You may be wondering what I am doing with all this money. I have been working on producing my third studio album. It has been with your support that I’ve finished roughly 70 percent of the album. However, I still have a bit of work to do before it is completed. This is not including the promotion and marketing of the album, which I will need your help for!

As an independent artist, autonomy is important but also gives me choice on who I work with, how my narrative is perceived by the public, and being an example for how artists should have control in their careers. With your support, I am able to pay talented artists who I collaborate with. I am able to make music I feel inspired to create and have full control of owning it. And most important, as a queer artist who is typically not represented in the mainstream, I can lead as an example for alternative voices in the arena of pop music.

This patron shouldn’t be centered on the idea of money, but the idea of connection between my audience and myself. It is with these rewards that I am able to do so. The most affordable tier, which is a pledge of one dollar a month, you will receive monthly music. These tracks will be comprised of my released studio singles, demos of new songs, works in progress, and covers exclusive to the patreon audience. For three dollars a month, you will be be able to witness my video blog series documenting my life as an artist and what it means to live and follow your dreams, and how turbulent and strange that sometimes can be. For seven dollars a month, patrons will be admitted to monthly livestream shows. There you will join me in intimate performances of new material and where afterwards we will have q&a sessions and hangouts. For twenty-five dollars a month, patrons will be receive bi-monthly mail which is not limited to, handwritten letters, physical products like cds and limited edition artworks, and other surprises. Finally, my last tier which I’m most excited for is the seventy-five dollar tier. I will offer monthly skype calls that’ll include a tarot card reading!

I hope you consider joining my journey and pledging today! Not only will you be supporting me and changing the history of how art is made, but we will be connected to me in a way that is truly special and unique. I hope to see you on the other side!
