As a full time independent recording artist, I am completely fan supported.  This is a blessing in so many ways:

  1. Freedom to craft my art without the pressures of a record label
  2. Not being locked into a long-term contract
  3. Flexibility to put family first, before my career

At the same time, there are challenges. The internet has brought endless distribution opportunities for artists. But, as an independent musician, the hardest part is reaching enough people who support my art financially.  

Nobody Wants To Pay For Music

With advancements in technology, music is losing it's perceived monetary value. After all, it's so easily accessible for free! I appreciate these new technologies, and use them frequently, too! This presents a challenge to me, however, as an artist who supports her family through music. Without a sustainable model, I cannot continue to share my art with you and the world--at least not as a full-time musician.

That's why we created these exclusive Patron plans! My regular online show, In Real Life, previously contained my new songs. We're currently experimenting with the format of my show, and of my music releases! (Watch for vlogging soon, plus more highly-produced singles.) Regardless of format, my content is available to everyone at no cost. For those who are willing and able to invest in my music, I give exclusive rewards (mentioned above in the Patron chart)! Because of this growing community of Amanda Vernon Patrons, I'm able to give my best art to the world.

About Me

Hello! I’m Amanda Vernon, a recording artist and author. I describe my songwriting style as "soulful pop," and I love expressing experiences of authentic beauty through my music.

A Thousand Miles
As a young teen, I would write new songs and then record them at my piano teacher’s small audio studio. I thought about reaching out to record labels, but something about that didn’t feel right at the time. Instead, I gave copies of the recordings to my friends on CD-ROM. And something amazing happened.

My friends started listening to my music even when I wasn’t around. The “buzz” started to spread. Doors opened for me to record my first professional album at 15 years old, through the support of my church youth group fund. I began giving concerts: first locally, then regionally, nationally, and eventually around the world. The passion I had for music and storytelling, slowly but surely became my career!

Running the Race
I love running. And running with friends is the best! In my music career, I‘ve become a “distance runner”: I’ve been steadily producing new music for 15 years. For over a decade, my friends, mentors, family members, and fans have accompanied me and cheered me on.

Music isn’t only about the songs themselves. I believe celebrating authentic beauty through music, lifts people’s hearts from apathy. Soulful music gives us permission to be vulnerable, and the inspiration to dream of the future with hopefulness.

I’m running this race not simply because I love music, but because I also desire to share that love to make our culture more beautiful. Whether you're a fellow artist running the race, or a supporter cheering from the stands, I really depend on community to keep going strong!

I Want to Be Your Friend
As a patron, you’ll not only empower me to keep sharing my music live, but you also help me to produce music meant for online listening and sharing.

After each of my live music events, I meet at least one person who makes me think, “I wish we could be friends!” I’m also amazed whenever I meet people who first heard my music even before we connected in person! I’m excited to deliver new content to my fans whom I’m honored to meet on the road, while also reaching those who haven’t made it to one of my live concerts.

For the first couple years of this Patron model, my new content was primarily a performance video on my show, In Real Life. Through the support of our patrons, I was able to write a book (debuting Black Friday 2018), record a Spanish-language album (coming soon), and plans are in the works to show you the behind-the-scenes of my tour in a vlog format soon.

Thank you for becoming a patron and helping to unlock ever-more exciting possibilities! I can’t wait to keep sharing the journey with you.

-Amanda
