These days I mostly make protest art - songs, videos, short films. Subscribe to help me do more of that.
At some point I'll write songs that aren't protest songs and release the finished album I have ready and waiting for when America is not experiencing a constitutional crisis.
The more support I get here the more music I can make. I don't mind working for money - I actually quite enjoy working - but when I work other jobs it definitely cuts down on the music making time and I don't think anyone wants that.
My history with subscriptions:
Starting in early 2012 I ran my own subscription called MISSION CONTROL. It was great. MISSION CONTROL allowed me to focus fully on writing my album, The Sky is Calling. Without that support the album would have taken much longer to complete while I scrambled to make ends meet.
I'm not in it for the money. I'm in it for the art. But music making can be expensive. Feeding and housing a human body is definitely expensive.
It's 2015 now, three years since I recorded my last album and I'm launching subscriptions on bandcamp, because bandcamp.com is a great site that gets things right.
I'm constantly writing music, some of it gets released publicly, some of it is just for the special people who subscribe here. This subscription will give you access to my writing process, to exclusive new music, unheard songs, ephemeral songs that are no longer available anywhere else, and pre-sales on limited edition merch like the super popular BOEK BOOKs.
You'll also get updates from me as I tour, write, record, and adventure around the world with my guitar and my synthesizers.
What will this pay for:
Instruments and gear
Assistants to help schedule and book travel, work days, and shows
You can subscribe for as little as $5/month (any less than that and it all gets eaten by fees) but you can also subscribe for more. I've had several people subscribing for $100-$200/mo for years. That's a lot of money! But it makes a HUGE difference to my life and my ability to create. If you can afford more, consider giving more. If you're not in a place to sign up for the monthly subscription, don't worry, I'll be posting some things publicly and you can always reach out to me if you're feeling really left out.
I love that you are reading these words. And I love my subscribers.
