Sustainably Support My Music
I have been thinking of a way to make music sustainably without the need to run GoFundme appeals every time I need to make an album while at the same time being better able to support my family through my music.
A little background...
I'm a musician from England who moved to the USA some years ago and started a family. My wife and I decided to foster and adopt kids that needed a home and we now have 3 kids that the state defines as special needs that we are parenting ages 9, 6, and 1. It is alternately the most challenging and rewarding thing I have ever done. It is also made more difficult because I now live where I have no support network so I am hoping that's where you come in!
But what about the music I hear you say! That's where you come in. I am hoping that you will consider supporting my music to help provide the resources that my kids need for them to develop as fully as possible. To this end I play a lot of live shows and put any money I earn towards the family. I am hoping that by releasing my music online I can provide further help.
I'd like you to help me take the next step and allow me to better support my kids by recording and releasing my music. I have around 70 originally composed songs ready to go and a basic home studio set up.
Won't you help me get them recorded?
For as little as $1 you can get things rolling, join the community and get a new song every month. For $5 I will record a "live" version of each new song I write. Heck for $1,500 I'll come to your place and play a show for you!
The plan going forward is to release music to Patrons only. The music won't be available elsewhere.
