This morning Sam Buckingham announced a very exciting new chapter in her musical life. Utilising the US based platform crowd sourcing Patreon, Buckingham will be delivering newly recorded songs direct to her fans in exchange for a pledge of patronage. The songs will be written as Sam Buckingham travels the world looking for new musical and artistic inspirations.
Founded just last year by Electronica and You Tube maestro Jack Conte, Patreon gives fans the opportunity to directly support creators in their artistic endevours – in Sam Buckingham’s case, traveling the world and writing music. We’ll let Sam explain it better in her new video:
