A Word from the folks at Patreon
Patreon is a way to join your favorite creator’s community and pay them for making the stuff you love. Instead of literally throwing money at your screen (trust us, that doesn’t work), you can now pay a few bucks per month or per post that a creator makes. For example, if you pay $2 per video, and the creator releases 3 videos in February, then your card gets charged a total of $6 that month. This means the creator gets paid regularly (every time she releases something new), and you become a bonafide, real-life patron of the arts. That’s right–Imagine you, in a long frilly white wig, painted on a 10-foot canvas on the wall of a Victorian mansion. And imagine your favorite creators making a living doing what they do best… because of you.
First things first!
We are excited about going on this journey with you, excited to see where it takes us, to hear the music we’ll make, to see the videos we’ll shoot, to look back in a few years and be happy we did this. The thought of being carried by you is just mind blowing, the thought of having you all stand together and carry our music career is just so flipping cool it gives us goosebumps! The world is in a crazy place at the moment, but there are some good things, like the power of the internet and platforms like Patreon giving artists like ourselves the golden opportunity to do this for a living.
When more than a few people get together and support an artist they love and believe in, something amazing happens, music gets made the way it used to, music with a voice that’s honest and not dictated to by brands and labels. We have lots of that music to share, please help us make it and get it out there.
