Patreon: a web based monthly way of supporting Simon

Musical ventures that are in the works
There are so many musical projects that are on my 'piano desk' and seeking a means of becoming. Both my time and money are limiting factors but really it's lack of funds that stops me for creating new albums (completed works). I thought perhaps if I post the partially made items here, they might catch the eye of a few wealthy benefactors who might be interested in investing the large sums of money needed to turn songs into polished recordings.
First project sitting on the back burner: An album of sacred poems and psalms.
Second unfinished project: My friend Leaf Lovetree and I have developed a number of beautiful piano and flute improvisations. Music for healing & meditation: instrumental music in a style similar to my Heart medicine (solo) album.
Third open project: I'd like to make an album gathering all the songs I have written about my experience of being transgender. Most of these songs are already recorded and dispersed on different albums or are as yet unpublished.
