I hope this finds you so well! I have a lot of exciting new stuff to tell you about and I want to say thank you for being here and interested in whats going on.
I wanted to share with you all a new idea I am trying. I have been traveling around playing music for 10 years and am so so thankful for the opportunities I have gotten and the amazing people I have been blessed to meet! I wouldn't trade it for anything. That being said, it has become increasingly harder to keep going. With streaming sites like Pandora and Spotify and countless others music has essentially become free, which is okay if you are an artist like Beyonce, but the reality is that it makes artists like myself cease to exist. As I was doing my taxes this year, going over my iTunes sales I was shocked with what I found. I had almost 250,000 plays from streaming sites which equated to $458 dollars for the year. That is .0001832- not even a penny for each song. The thing that is hard for me is that I am more popular than I have ever been, yet am further away than ever from supporting myself fully on music. So, I am trying something different. I am asking my friends and family for a small pledge of $5 a month. A monthly pledge for your belief in my music. In return you will get all of my past and future music and some cool discount codes, but it is more you saying, "I believe in what you are trying to do, and want to be a part of it". Want to be a part of it? Just click "support" below!
I hope my music has been able to reach you at a time when you needed it, thanks for being a part of the movement to help me make more. It's about being able to get what's inside of me out and reach other people when they need it.
When you sign up your card will be billed monthly for $5 and you will receive a download link to all my music a free song every month and 50% off all merchandise online or at a show! If you have ANY questions or would like to cancel do not hesitate to email me at firstname.lastname@example.org
