Help Me Create More Music – Become a Patreon

Ive been touring now for over 10 years or so and my life has been all about music, that’s all I know, that’s who I am, I love it, I like creating music and playing live, I love making people happy.

So the reason for writing this is that Im moving forward with the times, the new way that music is presented and the new way that musicians are surviving.

Playing shows, recording albums, releasing music has changed over time, it doesn’t make money for the musician to sustain what they do to keep going, I have done this for such a long time now and I’ve noticed each year that goes by it’s getting harder and harder for musicians to survive in what they do, we are doing all this independently these days.

So here we are at, I was thinking of ways to make money doing what allowed me to give music Back to you, I see other bands and artists doing same thing, this is a new way for me so lets see what happens.

I have been playing music all my life, I was born a shy quiet introverted type of person and my way of expressing was through music, through guitar playing. I also did take up a few timbale lessons, but I was too distracted by the guitar. I taught myself how to play guitar as a young kid, ever since then i found who I was, I used the guitar as my voice to express to people in society how I felt or for expressing some sort of emotion and a lot of people had connected with that in me. So that’s who I am, that’s what I do and I’m still trying to do that today and will continue doing this till the day i drop dead.

It’s been a hard road, and the reason I’m doing this is that the music scene has changed a lot over the years, I wish I was playing music back in the seventies and eighties where people come in droves to venues to gigs etc, anything to listen to music, to buy merchandise, or to buy records to support the artists. These days no one buys CDs, sales are dropping so much because there is no CD players in technology anymore, (a New computer has no CD drive in it). So the scene is changing, the technology is changing, what do people do? they don’t even buy digital downloads mp3’s, that’s even dropping off, So the new thing out is streaming music, everyone is streaming music from so many different websites and I can tell you musicians don’t really see much payment from this at all.

Us musicians have to find other means to make money to do what we do to give the music back to you guys, we do get paid for playing live venues but that is a very minimal amount of money these days (so many reasons for this also), travel costs, driving hours and hours between venues, fuel costs, accommodation, repairs on the tour van etc. and thats only one side of it, theres also rehearsal, recording, production fees, musicians to pay etc. this list can go on and on. Usually the money we do make goes back into the music to try and keep it moving forward.

Bands and lot of artists all around the world are trying to find a way to continue to write music to record music and to release music, how do they do that now? with help from you guys, this new way of sustaining us musicians to continue what we do is to have a subscription-based system, it’s not like a GoFundMe site or a Kickstarter site, it’s an ongoing subscription based service that you will be supporting us to continue to write, to continue to play, to continue to create music to give to you so you can listen, watch and enjoy. We love music this is all we want to do in life to just create music for you.

The enjoyment I get is seeing you enjoying the music that I give, that’s the connection we have, I love to give and that’s what makes me feel good its my drug playing music to you, and you give me that feedback helping me give more, Its like a snowball affect.

So become my Patreon, it’s an ongoing support that you just pay whatever you choose monthly, you can pay anything you like it’s up to you, and if you choose to do that and help me you will have have all these benefits and perks (rewards). I have a whole list of things that you can get, from all my albums to unreleased recordings, videos, Demo songs etc, lots of things that is not released to the public, you will also have an inside scoop to it all before anyone else plus more depending on how much you want to subscribe to each month.

Its a way to bring you guys closer to me and my music personally, I want you to feel a part of the music, feel like you are keeping music alive, I can’t wait to make this thing one big family. I thank you so much, I hope you get what you need out of this as I will definitely get what I need to help produce, create music and play music for YOU, So I hope you get on board and I thank you all very much.
