Hey there! Thanks for stopping by! I am an independent singer, songwriter, musician, and film/video artist. I have released a number of albums of original works, played tons of shows, and traveled on tours. My passion is writing, song-crafting, and making art in mostly auditory and filmic forms. In addition to creating and performing original music, I write poetry and fiction. I studied film in college(another great passion of mine), and work to produce projects that involve the camera, and have also engineered and produced music for other artists. In my years as an artist and performer I have learned that YOU, the fan, the audience, the listener, the viewer, YOU are what makes it possible to continue creating. I owe a lot to my supporters, and it is for my supporters that I will keep creating.

One thing I can say for my own art is that it comes from a place of love, struggle, and desire for healing. I have always been fascinated by the human condition and the evolution of mind and spirit. Furthermore, I am a fan of very true, human stories. These ideas make up the foundation of most of my creations.

Patreon is a platform that allows independent artists like me to create with the support of people who truly appreciate art and music. There are a number of rewards available on this page for pledging your support. They range from access to updates and vlogs, to downloads and exclusive content, to you helping produce my music, all the way up to me traveling to perform in your house. Like it was during the Renaissance, patrons of the arts make creative works possible and make life more beautiful. Thank you so much for your support!

Much love,
-RDO


Tiers
Orrchestra Member
$1 or more per song w/video and MP3, album release, or larger project
Access to updates, vlogs, and firsthand notice of new content and news about shows or releases.  Also, access to patron conversations where we can talk to each other and other Orrchestra members. 
Orrchestra Patron
$3 or more per song w/video and MP3, album release, or larger project
Receive MP3 downloads of new material from all my projects, many of which will be Patreon exclusive. Access to discounted presales of future albums exclusive to the Patreon family. Tier 1 rewards included. 
Orrchestra Conductor
$9 or more per song w/video and MP3, album release, or larger project
Much more personalized stuff. Cards in the mail from time to time. Your name in the credits of creations (videos, albums). Invitations to private shows and online performances. At this level you will also be given access to digital downloads of the first 7 RDO albums (over $50 value - must be active patron for at least one creation release/downloads will be given cumulatively, one album with each creation until fulfilled). Plus Tier 1 & 2 rewards.
Orrchestra Producer
$25 or more per song w/video and MP3, album release, or larger project
This is for the people who want to be really involved with the process. In addition to all rewards of the lower tiers, I will interact with you for input in the creative process. This means that when I am working on new material, I will present rough drafts exclusively to this group for feedback. You will get to suggest things like edits, instrumentation, adding or removing parts, all of the steps that go into producing a song. I will field everyone's feedback and we will keep the discussion going. Your name will appear as a producer in the credits of released material.
Archduke Rudolph
$100 or more per song w/video and MP3, album release, or larger project
Archduke Rudolph was said to be Beethoven's greatest patron, and through his contributions many great works were commissioned. Pledging at this level will get you all the rewards of all the other tiers, but it will also come with a free copy (digital, CD, and/or vinyl) of all future albums, mailed to you in a special, personalized package, along with some other goodies. Your name will also be prominently featured as an Executive Producer on media releases.
The Private Show
$1,000 or more per song w/video and MP3, album release, or larger project
What!?! Really? In the event that you pledge at this level, not only will I be eternally grateful and spread tales of your magnificence, I will build a string of tour dates around your location and play a personal concert for you in your living room. Or your yard. Or your kitchen. Or wherever. Details will be worked out between us. (Patrons outside the U.S. would also be required to provide travel expenses; Multiple private performances are available, but are limited to 1 per year and will not necessarily coincide with creation releases)
Goals
11 of 500 patrons
Tour planning will be crowd sourced and be collectively planned by the Orrchestra based on where people would like to see shows and what kinds of shows they want to see (solo, full band, covers, etc.)
