  • Comments Off on Jazz Meets Electronic Music Mark de Clive-Lowe On Patreon

As I mentioned last week in a Cash Sherpa post the one thing I miss the most during this pandemic is live music. In my city just a few weeks ago they shut down bars and restaurants again, and music venues… well music venues haven’t been open for almost a year now. If you are like me and want great music to continue and not devolve into soulless baby shark songs everywhere consider supporting musicans you care about now. There is another interesting artist doing great things listed on Patreon that I’d like to bring to my audiences attention. His name is Mark de Clive-Lowe and Mark creates jazz-meets-electronic genre music heavily incorporating music technology (ableton, native instruments maschine) in his process.

Mark de Clive-Lowe started his Patreon after everything got shut down due to the pandemic. He has been a touring artist for 20 years non stop up until this point. Mark needed to do something, he thought, “since i’m not able to go anywhere, I needed to find an outlet for my creativity.” Patreon seemed like the obvious choice, since it allows artists to produce what they enjoy creating and income to facilitate this process. It is as close as a win-win business model that I’ve ever seen on the Internet, the secret is that it’s self sustaining. Seth Godin talks about art being “a human act, a generous contribution, something that might not work, and it is intended to change the recipient for the better, often causing a connection to happen.” The issue with art only being a “generous act” not paired eventually with some sort of income is it will eventually lead to not enough money in the bank. What happens when there isn’t enough money? Well, you start focusing more on the bills and less on the art. So that’s why I think Patreon is so powerful as a platform. We can have that “generous act” of creating art, but also be supported by a community of fans.

Mark de Clive-Lowe Patreon

Mark says the best thing about Patreon has been “the feeling of community on it – it’s been really special to get it going. even just our monthly community zoom sessions, everyone shares music they’re loving at the moment and we listen together and chat about it. That kind of thing has been building the community vibe there a lot. We just started community creative collaborations too – inviting members to collab with me and each other regardless of skill level or experience.”

Not only you’ll be able to listen to Mark’s newly created tracks you’ll also get a front row seat to his creative process. You’ll get access to a community on Patreon that likes and supports great music. The Patreon community will get new exclusive music every month as well as access to his extensive archive. The archive includes tracks, monthly livestream performances, community zoom chats and behind the scenes livestreams breaking down different projects, tracks and collaborations. For the music-makers, there’s in-studio zoom sessions, video lessons, multitrack stems, sample packs, and more. Mark’s Patreon page also just started community creative collaborations through his Discord server that’s open to everyone. There’s an exclusive Patreon-only vinyl, private access to works-in-progess and monthly mentoring/lessons available too.

What Benefits You’ll Get:

As a Patreon supporter at the $3 get access to the vault archive. Invitation to Community Collaborations. Invitation to Discover Server. Bonus content and first listens. $10 per month gets you the Vault+ exclusive new music monthly, livestream live set, and monthly community Zoom chat. $25 per month (Top Level) gets you the Vault+ Front Row+ which includes monthly studio sessions, behind the sceens livestream, access to WAV remix stems for selected releases, bonus video lessons, and access to sample pack downloads.

Preview Before Supporting

Everything is sounding good to me from a Patreon standpoint, but what about the actual music? Luckily for you Mark de Clive-Lowe has a YouTube page where he is a featured artist. Check out the YouTube “With Love From LA” page here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3tTedQZJLPY “With Love From LA presents this month’s feature artist – jazz-meets-electronica artist Mark de Clive-Lowe. Today he joins us from his home studio with a special WLFLA set.” If there is one thing that stands out to me is the creativity is taken to the next level. “I’ve always been an advocate of integrating technology with music.” He has every piece of DJ equipment, keyboards, software, live drummer, lights, it has to be experienced in video form to appreciate the scale of the production Mark is putting on.  This is not a Mark de Clive-Lowe exclusive YouTube page so you will need to sign up for Patreon in order to continue watching content such as this. Mark started piano when he was 4 and his experience shows. He grew up aspiring to be a jazz musician and fell in love with hip hop and electronic music along the way.

Singer Songwriter Musician Jordan Ravenhill On Patreon

  • Comments Off on Singer Songwriter Musician Jordan Ravenhill On Patreon

During the pandemic the one thing that I’m missing the most is seeing live music in my city. This used to be one of my favorite things to do before Covid-19 hit and now it’s almost completely gone away. This has got me thinking will these venues and musicians still be around when everything goes back to normal? There is one thing you can do right now when contemplating this thought. Support singers, songwriters, and musicians online or in anyway you can. There is one musician that I’d like to bring to the attention of my readers named Jordan Ravenhill. Ravenhill set up a Patreon and if your like me and missing live music you’ll be glad to hear he regulary has Livestreams through his Patreon.

Lets not leave things to chance, get active now, Patreon is a good start. If you don’t support Jordan Ravenhill’s Patreon page find the artist you do like and support their music.

You can find Ravenhill at:

https://www.patreon.com/JordanRavenhill

I like to support people on Patreon myself. I bought a face mask from an unrealted site for music venues called SaveOurStages.com. “The mission of NIVA (National Independent Venue Association) is to preserve and nurture the ecosystem of independent live event venues and promoters.” This is an example of doing anything you can to support music in one’s city.

Jordan Ravenhill

Jordan Ravenhill is a 24 year old full time singer, songwriter, and musician. Support him on Patreon today and you’ll get access to live streams, behind the scenes content, video education, and early access to things like tickets. Check out Jordan perform Loop Pedal Cover of “I Don’t Care” by Ed Sheeran below:

This is what the world needs right now! More live music like this! Right now Ravenhill has about 20 videos on his YouTube page and almost 200 subscribers.

Support Levels

There are 3 support levels on the Pareon page. Become a Patron first at the $3 level, next $13, then $39. $3 gets you live streams and a custom sticker. $13 gets you live streams, behind-the-scenes content, video turtorials, lessons, and a custom sticker. $39 gets you live streams, behind-the-scenes content, early access to updates, tickets, releases, and a custom sticker. If you are already a member of Patreon it’s really easy to add Jordan to your monthly giving mix. Just search JordanRavenhill and click on the level of support.

Conclusion

Sometimes I think Patreon gets a bad wrap by some people that don’t understand its true purpose. They think it’s like the Internet version of panhandling. Since the creation of the Internet we were trained to think that everything should be free and that information is a commodity. What people produce (Human capital) should be valued at nearly $0.00 and really should be free if possible they said. Lets see… what happened? Well one example is the news. Have you visited a popular “news” site lately? It’s like an episode of Jerry Springer from the mid 1990s. Playing on emotion for readership, to cut through the noise, competing for attention. Patreon allows people to create… create art, whatever, even if what they produce doesn’t naturally cut through the noise. Even if what they produce doesn’t do well with the “engagement algorythm.” It allows people like Jordan Ravenhill to pursue his passion while making a steady monthly income from his true fans. During the Classical Era musicians worked under what is known as the patronage system. “Musicians and/or composers would as servants to powerful noblemen (https://westerncivguides.umwblogs.org/).” Not everything is a commodity, human capital does cost something, not everything should be free unless all you want to hear on the radio is Baby Shark Tooth songs. We have to support the things we love. For me, it’s live music, for you it might be something different. If we don’t support the things we care about they might not stick around. Clearly if there is one thing this pandemic has taught us is that society can not be taken for granted. What seems solid is not. We, us, create the society we want to live in.
