Support Ellis on Patreon!
Thursday, March 9, 2023
More and more of my music, art, livestreams and business work in the future will be conducted through Patreon.
Patreon has allowed me to live with far more creative freedom as an artist.
We've had over 1,000 Patreon supporters since the site was launched in January 2020.
Before the pandemic I was tied to touring in a way that allowed for very little time to focus on songs and recordings. It was also just exhausting. Touring is financially challenging, but it was also my primary source of income. I unfortunately had to do a lot of it in order to make enough money to survive and feed the family. I love touring but the expenses eat away more than 75 percent of an artist’s profits. It’s still an important part of my business, but shouldn’t creating music, art, books be the most important thing? Patreon is how I make that happen!
My past creative work was often done in the haze between shows and traveling. I hope you’ll hear the difference in the quality of this new album— I had the space to do it properly— and it’s me at my best. Rested, focused, and committed.
Here’s a list of a few things you’ll have access to when you join Patreon:
— my new music via digital download or physical merchandise
— weekly songs or shows or videos from my 30-year archive
— access to livestreams shows like the Traveling Medicine Show with interviews and performances from special guests from the folk world and an archive of livestream shows you may have missed.
— discounts on merchandise
— at the upper levels, backstage passes, custom songs, house concerts, private livestreams, co-writing opportunities, special events and more
— access to me via email for questions or inquiries.
— the karmic glow of supporting an artist whose music you love!
