I am a songwriter, bandleader, music teacher, artist, father and human. I seek resonance in everything I do and cultivate time and space where creativity and critical inquiry can flourish.
Maintaining a full-time art practice however is a delicate and precarious balance. In a capitalist paradigm, artists are not sustainably supported nor valued and understood. The art economy needs reform.
The monthly patron model provides sustained financial support for artistic work and is transforming how I operate my practice. The patron model gives me security to commit to my creative process. It allows me to make work that resonates with my spirit while nurturing and compensating a vibrant community of artists, patrons and fans.
You can support my career (and by extension my community) for the price of a cappuccino. Your monthly contribution acts as true and direct patronage to creative work: compensating collaborators, maintaining rehearsal space, production and distribution of new work, equipment maintenance, project management, administration and more. You are supporting not only an individual, but a community—a system—a network of creators working to make art, music and change.
In return, your subscription lets you in on the process and invites you to join a vulnerable space full of creativity. You get exclusive access to an ever-evolving well of work rolled out in monthly doses. The collection includes the breadth of my creative practice:
- music teaching,
- music production,
- fine art,
- writing, and
- all things Heat Speak.
You will have access to:
unreleased B-sides, demos, live recordings, instructional videos, live streamed concerts, Q&A sessions, lyrics and lead sheets, exclusive documentation, free downloads of previously released work, early releases of forthcoming records, artwork, merch and more.
The art economy needs reform so thank you for being that change!
