Become my patron at patreon.com/pollypaulusma.
What is Patreon?
Patreon is an online platform which enables fans to offer continued support to their favourite artists and creators in the form of a monthly contribution, in return for content not available anywhere else. If enough people put a few pennies or cents in the hat each month, so the thinking goes, fans’ collective power enables artists like me to work.
Since January 2020, I have been posting a weekly video diary and live streaming a gig monthly — exclusively for patrons, all archived on my Patreon page and there to watch again. This is content not available anywhere else. I also offer personalised thank you videos, head starts on tickets, VIP treatment at gigs, even songwriting guidance — exclusively for members of this community.
In April 2020 I have been performing a gig a night live from my shed, moving a timezone each day to create a ‘world tour’. The shows have been available for the public at the moment of performance, but only Patreon patrons can watch them again.

You can choose which tier you want to participate in — from $5 ‘All Access’ for weekly video diaries charting my creative life, monthly live streaming gigs from my shed, and, if you’re not already subscribed, a new song a month as part of the ‘Pivot’ slow album project — up to $100/month which gains you access to my Song Clinic, where I’ll give you feedback and guidance on a song a month
