per month
Every time I finish a song, I will send it to you. At the current rate of 1 song per week, that's about 25 cents a song. This is a fine, respectable tier.
Finance My Move To San Diego Tier
per month
I'm told that Generation Z wants not mere content, but Access. And so this tier is like the prior one, but with access to a patreon-only journal, which I will update often, but not annoyingly often, detailing the process of writing the songs you're paying for.
The Taft Memorial Finance My Move To Antarctica Tier
per month
Like the prior tier, save that every time I make a record (happens more often than you'd think), I'll send you a physical copy. Even if it's not being physically released, I'll make a physical copy and send it to you. I think this is a nice tier.

About Jon Massey

The Brief Pitch:
Above this wall of text is a song I did, called "Alisonland". If you like it, here is a website where you can give me money to keep making things like this.

The Long Pitch:
I've been writing songs since I was 10 years old, and recording them for the last 8 years under the nom de guerre Silo's Choice, sometimes with a band, sometimes without. I'm aware that that's a fairly quixotic thing to be doing with your life in 2018, but I hope that this music might be pleasant or useful to people, if not now then at some future point. I've made this Patreon because (1) I spend enough hours a week making these songs that I'm legally required to provide health benefits for myself; and if I can convert that effort into rent, well hey, that'd be great; and because (2) it would be nice to have a bit of capital to do some cool things like:

- Purchase some new amps / microphones / plug-ins / stuff musicians spend money on;
- Fund cloud storage for the vast digital archive I'm going to spend the next year or so assembling;
- Buy studio time and pay musicians to record an outrageous double album and pay high-powered K Street lobbyists to get its lyrics entered into the Congressional Record;

et cetera. Normal things. I'm not expecting to get rich quick off of this and establish a Silo's Choice World Headquarters in Monaco, but if you see fit to throw a buck or several my way, then bless you and thanks for reading this.
$90 of $5,000 per month
if i make five thousand US dollars on this website a month i will hire a secretary to purchase an army of vintage drum machines and devote all of my time to building influence in cincinnati city government.
