Now, more than ever...
we need to be brave.
Hi! I'm Emily Ann Peterson.
I write songs and books (and more!) to empower your bravery.
You might be my patron if...
...if you love what I do and want to be part of it more often!
Each of my brave and beloved patrons pledge a small amount ($5+) monthly. That amount covers my ongoing overhead expenses and helps fund new music & book releases!
As a thank you, every month my patrons receive membership to:
- Snail-Mail Club: stickers! magnets! postcards!
- Song-of-the-Month Club: patrons-only demo or publicly available studio recording, often both!
- Plus, behind-the-scenes videos, voting privilege on new merch, surprise event invites, downloads and bonus content!
It's all waiting for you in a secret patron-only membership area! Patrons can cancel at any time. Thank you in advance for your enduring support of the work I put out into the world!
Pay What You Can, Get All the Benefits!
(I get it. There's a pandemic out there. If you need to, cancel at any time!)
Plus, Immediate Access to...
How It Works
Watch my song seeds grow!
I keep every draft of my songwriting in The Incubator for my patrons.
Help me pick out merch!
I trust your judgement, so my patrons will get to pick which upcoming t-shirt design they like best!
Attend surprise online events!
Patrons get access to any exclusive virtual hangout, happy hour, concert, or creative chat we host!
Get the *real* behind-the-scenes story of each song on every album I've released. Each diary entry has lyrics, the song's inspiration, and extra bundles of goodness too!
Wanna hear the "song seeds?" the works in progress? the songs waiting in the wings? Everything found here in the Song Incubator is unreleased but certainly not least!
Benefactors come in all shapes and sizes.
