This is an important announcement regarding how things are going to move forward with everything Skafish.
I have great fans who have generously helped me with the remastering and reissue of my first album. Now that the album is available digitally and on CD, plus vinyl is coming, I have many new musical projects I want to release. The reason I can do this now is because finally, after decades of struggle, I own the rights to ALL of my music. And, I am passionate about wanting to release it all.
Getting back the rights was quite expensive. Re-releasing new music is also expensive. Graphics, artwork, videos, legal issues, platform fees, and the cost of properly reissuing old and creating/releasing new music, especially on vinyl and CD is costly.
So, I’ve decided to focus my energies on Patreon and the benefits that platform can bring to both my fans and I. Patreon allows me to have a direct relationship with my fans, minus the gatekeepers, such as a major record label. The purpose of me asking for financial support on Patreon is to assist in being able to cover all of the costs of releasing the music. The less time I spend on outside projects to pay the bills, the more time I can devote to Skafish music projects, both old and new.
Therefore, from now on, all important Skafish updates about every project (announcements, sneak peeks, etc.) will be first posted and shared on Patreon. Some of it will be for free; some of it will only be for paid tiers and some of it will be exclusive to my patrons on Patreon.
Click here to visit my Patreon page and follow me there for free. Also, let me know on Patreon your thoughts of what I am intending to share and if there is anything else you would like to see me offer that you are willing to pay for through supporting me monthly on Patreon. If you want to contribute your financial support in whatever capacity works for you, it will help future Skafish projects to be released. There is a lot to look forward to and together, we can make this happen!
FYI, the Skafish newsletter will be continuing to provide updates. It is just that the news will be posted on Patreon first.
As always, I truly appreciate our connection, the support and the fact that my fans have made this long road trip of a transformative journey with me that has been both gratifying and heartwarming.
