About Preston Reed

Thank you for visiting my Patreon page!

For those of you who don’t know me, I’ve been a full-time professional guitarist, composer and performer for over forty years.

During that time I’ve played thousands of concerts on every continent, made seventeen albums, been signed to two major labels and had my music used in films.

Over the years I have worked with - and in some cases taught - many well-known artists. My 1994 instructional video The Guitar Of Preston Reed: Expanding The Realm Of Acoustic Playing, my YouTube videos and my workshops have influenced generations of guitarists.

I have been a TED speaker twice. My performance with Usman Riaz at TEDGlobal 2012 has had millions of views on YouTube and other platforms.

Why am I here on Patreon?

The truth is, making a living in music is a struggle for most musicians, including me.

One of the biggest challenges independent, self-employed artists face is the irregular nature of our incomes. Despite almost everyone in the world loving music, it can be difficult for musicians who never “made it big” to finance their creative potential.

There are many creative ideas and projects I would explore if I had the financial room... and I know I would grow further as an artist as a result.

Your support will help build the financial stability and resources to sustain what I am doing, (which at the moment is writing music for my next solo guitar album).

It would also make it possible to pursue exciting new projects (I’ve got a big one in mind right now).

Your support will directly help me get more creative work done, and in doing so will also help support others.

I could:

 set up a team to help me realise my creative projects
 pay for studio time
 rehearsal space
 album artwork and manufacturing costs
 pay musicians, arrangers, film-makers and other artists I collaborate with

If you want to support my ongoing creative work and participate in my growth as an artist, this is the place to do that! :^)

You can support me at any level, from as little as $1 per month.  I am grateful for whatever you can afford to contribute.
