Become a My Patron!
Your Monthly Pledge of Support Matters.
My patrons like what I do and want to be part of it! Each of my brave and beloved patrons pledge a small amount ($2+) monthly. That amount covers my ongoing overhead expenses and helps fund new music releases and the purchase of special equipment!
Get Bonus Goodies!
As a thank you, my patrons receive access to unreleased songs, behind-the-scenes videos, and bonus blog posts about my creative process are all waiting for you in a secret patron-only membership site!!!! Monthly patrons can cancel at any time.
Thank you in advance for your enduring support of the work I put out into the world!
~Emily Ann Peterson
Frequently Asked Questions
These are some of the questions people most frequently ask about patronage:
How does monthly patronage work?
It works a little like Kickstarter, but instead of giving a lot of money at one time per project you give a set amount per month. The great thing is you can adjust your pledge to whatever amount you feel comfortable with at any time.
What are the perks of becoming my Patron?
Every monthly patron gets access to the patron membership site, which holds behind-the-scene audio clips of new songs, records of exciting moments, and occasionally a surprise online concert!
How will my monthly pledges help Emily Ann?
Monthly patrons allow me to devote more time to the creative process, and afford the production necessary to produce the highest quality music and podcast episodes possible.
Basically, your monthly pledges help me do everything I do, but better!
What are you currently working on?
The next step is to mix and master a studio full-length album. I've collected 13+ of the many songs I've written in the last several months. Each song paints snapshots of life, heartbreak, goodbyes, bravery, and loving in the moment. They make hearts melt (or so I've been told.) I know we'll all be standing in tiny, wistful, courageous, heart-shaped puddles at the final measure of the last song of this album.
I'm also putting out weekly episodes of the Bare Naked Bravery podcast featuring conversations about the courage behind the heroes we love most.
I don't have much money, can I still become a patron?
Of course! Even $5 per month will make a huge difference and would be greatly appreciated. :)
Remember, you can always put a cap on how much you are willing to donate every month. And you can always make an adjustment to your monthly patronage, if anything changes.
Can I stop donating in the future if I cannot afford it?
You betcha! If you can't afford to donate in the future, or you need to donate less that's absolutely fine. You can just log in to change or cancel the account whenever you want.
Benefactors come in all shapes and sizes.
