Hi there! My name is Katherine Christie Evans and I grew up underneath a piano.

I'm a classically trained singer, a songwriter, and a guitarist, and all of my favourite foods are beige. I'm currently working on Velodrome, my songwriting project that I hope Patreon will help me develop! First however, a quick word about Patreon.

Patronage of the arts has existed since the ancient world. Leonardo da Vinci and Michelangelo, William Shakespeare, and Ben Jonson; possibly none of these creators would be known today if it weren’t for their patrons. But now we are in the age of the internet, and everyday people can become patrons of the arts! 

Patreon is a bit like Kickstarter, but instead of supporting individual projects, you support ongoing creativity. In my case, if enough kind, generous people make small gestures of support (which can be as little as $1/£0.60 per month), I will be able to develop my music project, which I'll be able to share freely with everyone. The arrangement is flexible - you can cancel or alter your pledge at any time.

Each level of support entitles you my patrons to exclusive rewards and gifts, which I will list at the bottom of this page. Pledges are monthly, but you can make a one-off pledge of support (if you want), by simply cancelling or amending after one month. And it can be done through Paypal, so it's all safe and easy (if you're worried about that sort of thing).

Now, to briefly explain my project.

I have written lots of songs, a small selection of which you can find at: Soundcloud.com/velodromemusic

I love songwriting. I am always trying to learn more about composition, spend much of my free time listening to new sounds or practising instruments, and I live and breathe music.

I come from a family of Welsh and Scottish opera singers and classical pianists, and taught myself the guitar and how to write music. My music is inspired by many genres including classic rock n roll, 70s rock, 90s grunge, and 80s synthpop and electronica. Rent is high in London- I can't afford a music studio so I record aquashed in the corner of my bedroom,  it’s not ideal, and the cat keeps trying to eat my audio cables... but I manage!

My biggest challenges are: finding time to write, record & produce my songs, and affording music equipment and training in music production. This is where you can help! Even a small contribution from patrons will help me with my music project.

Recent News:
I am about to self-release my debut single, "His Physique", on May 18th 2018! The song is a playful exploration of my own queerness and gender. I am making a DIY music video on a shoestring budget. The basic idea for the video is to dress up as men from Renaissance paintings!
If you become a patron you'll have access to behind-the-scenes footage, video diaries and more, of me and my partner in crime making the video and all the fabulous costumes.

In return for your support, as a Velodrome patron you will receive unique gifts, such as handwritten lyric sheets, artwork posters and unreleased demos!
