I hope that you all are being safe and listening to the experts during the current pandemic. The health and safety of our loved ones is paramount at this time!
That being said, I wanted to make you all aware of what I am doing with my music currently, because I am one of those who is 100% affected financially by this crisis. With the cancellation of shows and halt in the booking of weddings and private functions, my source of income has all but dried up.
So, not being one to accept defeat or sit still, I have taken the initiative to create! I wanted to share some ways that we can continue to interact and ways that you can show your support for my music and the business that supports my family:
- If you haven’t already, you can purchase a digital download of my album on the “Chaos and Clarity” page for $9.99.
- I have started Facebook Live broadcast called “Friday Night Fireside Quarantines.” Every Friday evening at 7:30PM EST for the foreseeable future, I will be playing a live concert from my home and will play your requests! To request a song ahead of time, please view my song list on my Facebook page, make a selection and leave a tip (if you can) on PayPal at firstname.lastname@example.org, on Venmo at Jonathan Durnell, or on Zelle at (260)797-2980. Songs with the highest corresponding tips will be played first and I will play for about 90 minutes.
- I am in the process of recording an album entirely on my own from my basement studio during this quarantine. That release will be available for $9.99 as well at some point in April.
- If you have been negatively affected financially by this crisis, but still want to help, you can share my live broadcast or my web site with your friends! Every little action helps!
Thanks so much for continuing to support me on my musical journey and I look forward to hearing from and chatting with you! Be safe!
Yours in music,
