You may not have heard about Patreon yet as it launched some weeks ago so let me introduce you to this new brillant website. To make it simple, Patreon redefine the old concept of musical patronage and brings it to a whole new level, offering to artists and music fans a plateform which didn’t exist until now. A very welcome rebirth of this old concept in our digital age.
Artists and musicians can share and sell music on many websites, some better than others, my two favorite being Bandcamp and Soundcloud but Patreon goes further : “Patreon supports artists and content creators by letting fans fund each piece of created content.”
I worked for years on Spleen Arcana’s first album and it took me around four years to record its follow up. During all these years, I wished I could share in parallel other unreleased songs and free myself from the constraint of the LP format, without abandoning the cd format.
That’s why I find Patreon so brillant : By supporting directly my music on Patreon, you get an access to exclusive songs (and various rewards), you get truly involved and your pledge contributes to the creation of more music and the release of more CD albums. And at last but not least, it gives me the freedom to remain independent and create the music I truly want to make.
So here is Spleen Arcana’s Patreon page : http://www.patreon.com/spleenarcana
If you like my music and want to hear more on a regular basis and get exclusive new songs, please consider supporting Spleen Arcana on Patreon. Needless to say I’d be forever grateful to you! THANK YOU
