It has always been important to me that we have creative autonomy over the music that Nick and I create and release. We joined Patreon in January 2020 and since then we have been building a beautiful community around our music, of people who directly support us and the creative vision that we have. We feel so grateful to be still in a position to work as freelance musicians, especially with the current state of the world. I have my patrons to thank for that.
How does it help?
Patreon has helped us produce and release more music, upgrade our studio equipment, hire other artists to work with us to create music videos and album art, get our album printed on vinyl and also pay for music promotion and distribution. It has completely changed the way we are able to work as independent musicians.
What can you expect?
So what can you expect if you join us here? Basically you get to come on this musical adventure with us. Some of the things I share are:
- weekly poems
- behind the scenes footage
- access to our private Instagram
- downloads of unreleased music/voicenotes/concerts
- album tracks and music videos before they are released
- new songs as soon as they are written
- discounts on merch
- exclusive livestreams
- covers of your favourite songs
- vinyls and CDs when they are released
- free tickets to shows (when we are allowed to have some)
- monthly updates where I ramble a little and tell you everything we have been up to!
I have also started a club called We Are Wondering, where patrons can send in their own work, be it poetry, stories, videos, songs, photography or anything else they want! It has been so wonderful to be able to share each others’ creativity.
How does it work?
You can sign up either monthly or annually. Monthly membership will be charged on the day you join, and then on the first of each month from then on. Annual members will receive an 8% discount (that works out to about 1 free month of patreon!) and have their membership renewed once a year.
As soon as you join, you will have access to my entire back catalogue of posts, including songs, poetry and everything else I share! You can also leave whenever you like so there is no pressure to commit!
Please do get in touch if you have any questions (firstname.lastname@example.org)
Patreon has changed our lives for the better in so many ways. I hope you will join us!
