Pinned toot

I so do not have time to talk about this in any depth right now but I think success on has way more to do with what you do outside of Patreon than how you configure your rewards.

The steps go:
1) do the work
2) give people a reason to support you in it
3) ensure they know you exist
4) make it easy for them to give you money

Patreon is step 4).

For me step 2) involves putting my work online for free, and step 3) is mostly demo recordings, which I have been v v lax about recently.

I'm going to be super duper busy with PhD stuff and other deadlines until at least December 2018, and probably pretty exhausted after that and still fairly busy with PhD stuff until August 2019.

This means I may go very quiet on here without warning, and it means I can't realistically take on any new projects, commitments, collaborations and so on.

I compose sacred and secular choral music, and put it online under a CC by-SA license so choirs can sing it for free!

Publishers won't touch my work because I won't let them prohibit photocopying, so I need support from people like you.

is a structure for companiable support with getting stuff done -- work or side projects or admin or whatever you find difficult to stick with.

The basic structure is: ten minutes of checking-in and planning at the top of the hour, then 50 minutes of actually doing things, repeated for up to 3 hours.

More on the structure, plus an example:

I expect I'll be using this hashtag a lot, so you may wish to mute it if it's boring to you. I will CW my toots though.

Finally duplicating and numbering this amazing album. If you ordered one, it will be on your way today. There's only 4 of them left if you didn't.

Solely to avoid the "saying important in anything is baddd" crowd, here's the logic behind that:

I need money to live, my art is my source of income, and shit's real bad in my life rn. And this album sounds better than the $0 I had to make it happen.

So yes, this is important. To me, and to anyone who appreciates antifascists, or trans queers, or disabled people making art.

At the risk of sounding like the pissed off artist I am:

Supporting poor artists is way more important than most people believe.

Pre-orders for my latest album "Cult Rock Accommodation" are up on Bandcamp:

This includes 3 readily streamable & downloadable power pop punk of a queer revolutionary nature songs. All of which are Faster Than Your General Songs

$6+ Patreon backers can access the full album 8 days before release via this link:

Shares are massively important cuz a lot of my life over the last 2 years is in this

If you're in London and want to hear some of my music this Sunday, a hymn of mine is being sung at St Pancras Parish Church at the 10am Eucharist, and my Nunc dimittis will be sung at Evensong at Hampstead Parish Church at 6pm.
