I created the PATRON CIRCLE to invite listeners into a deeper connection with my work. As a totally independent artist, I'm looking for that inner-circle of supporters who want to see Former Ruins flourish.
For $5/month, you significantly impact my ability to produce more music, provide a sustainable income for my family, and send me out as an artist on mission. In return, you get:
1. THE DEBUT ALBUM + ANNOTATED LYRIC BOOKLET
Within a week of signing up, I send you a physical CD of Large Startling + a 16-page annotated lyric booklet.
2. STICKER AND PERSONAL NOTE IN THE MAIL
- After your first month, I send you a die-cut sticker and a handwritten note
3. EXCLUSIVE ACCESS TO THE PATRON CIRCLE + PERSONAL CONSULT
- Right away, you get login access to all the exclusive content I post to the PATRON CIRCLE. This is where I'll share demos, works-in-progress, videos, cover songs, readings, Scripture meditations, and more. Shortened clips of these may pop up on social media periodically, but only you get full access and share in the creative process.
- If you're a songwriter/lyricist yourself, I'd offer a complimentary video consult to help you workshop one of your own songs. I'm especially passionate about helping Christian artists more effectively bear witness to the Difficulty, Mercy & Wonder of the Narrow Way. If that's you, be in touch! We'll make it happen.
4. PATRON-ONLY MERCH DISCOUNT CODES
- Percentage-off, BOGO, and other monthly deals for logged-in PATRON CIRCLE members only.
5. EARLY ACCESS TO THE MUSIC I RELEASE WIDELY
- EARLY ACCESS to all new music I plan to release widely, likely weeks in advance. I'd share as a digital download that you could stow away on whatever device you please. And so long as I make CDs of future albums, I will send you one and cover shipping. Just ask.
Thank you for the love + support, as none of it is lost on me and my wife.
Peace to you,
