Hello! I hope that everyone has had a great holiday season…I’m still visiting family and friends in America, spending 3 weeks on a near-permanent sugar high. It’s like a…cultural thing.
Meanwhile, I’ve just started a “creator” page on Patreon. This is a site where art-consumers (that’d be people who listen to music and watch videos and read books, so, basically, people) can subscribe to financially back art-makers (musicians, videographers, writers, etc.) That’s the short version, but there is more information on their website.
It took me a while to get up the courage, but I finally took the plunge and made my own page. You can take a look at it here. I did it because I would like to be able to (read, “be able to afford to”) spend more time on my original songs. And “time=money”; I’m not on a record label, strictly a DIY-operation, and I’ve got to make ends meet somehow. Usually that means playing other people’s songs. I’d like to spend more time on my own. Subscribers could make that a reality.
So, for as little as $1 a month, you can sign up to keep me going. It comes with goodies that I create – old recordings, new recordings, lyrics, and song explanations. Plus my gratitude. Lots of gratitude. And good karma. And the knowledge that you’re awesome. (You are.)
