What is a performing musician without performances?
What is happening?
Subscribers to the free portion of my newsletter will receive one post a week. This could be a streaming mp3 of a new song I’ve written or a beat I’ve produced, a personal essay article, a poem or some lyrics, a multimedia piece, or a new video of me performing an old favorite.
Paying subscribers ($5 a month or $50 a year) will receive two posts a week. You’ll get what one might call backstage access — a chance to participate in Q&A forums where you can ask me questions and engage with the "Musical Notes: Anecdotes from a Life of Music Making" community. You’ll be able to request songs for me to perform, learn more about the stories behind my lyrics, see behind-the-scenes footage from past and future music videos and studio sessions, and listen to or watch my conversations with artist friends about process and how they’ve built and sustained careers in their corners of the arts and entertainment world.
If you can’t pay for a subscription for any reason but you want access to the material, just contact me and I’ll comp you, no questions asked.
One of my favorite parts of performing live is getting the chance to thank new and long-time fans and supporters in person. Because of how much has changed in the past year or so, I'm highly motivated to learn about and utilize new methods of performing (such as virtual concerts and online livestream performances). In the meantime, this chance to connect with you directly through your inbox is a lifeline.
I’m proud to be part of the conversation as musicians redefine what it is to protect, sustain, and grow in our work and in our relationship with our fans. Your subscription is integral to this journey, and I thank you.
