“I started listening to Art of the Song 10 years ago. At the time I wasn’t playing music, but the desire to play was burning inside of me. Your show helped to fan that ember, and today I’m living out my music dreams.” 

– Natalie Spears (Patron, Art of the Song guest artist)

Join the Art of the Song Community on Patreon

Patreon is a platform to help creators connect with fans and potential supporters. It’s a two way street. Creators like us provide content and special benefits, and fans like you provide support in the form of a monthly contribution.

A monthly contribution of as little as $2 gets you in. You may select the membership and benefit level that suits your budget. Every little bit helps keep Art of the Song on the air and John & Viv creating!

Art of the Song is a labor of love. We provide the show free of charge to stations, so we depend upon contributions from listeners to keep the show going. Patreon gives us an excellent way to receive support and offer something in return––community and inspiration for creative explorers.


Pandemic Update: We are staying healthy and using this time at home to deepen our creative practices. However, much of the income that keeps our creative engine moving forward has dried up. We’ve had to cancel our entire Summer 2020 Mother Jones in Heaven tour and many regional performances as well. Now more than ever, your support is greatly appreciated. THANK YOU!

“I listen to NPR and Art of the Song on KRCB of Sonoma County, California. I really appreciate your radio program and the unique, in-depth insights I get on artists whom I might otherwise have overlooked. Thanks for the music and your initiative to inspire and support other artists and ‘creatives,’  especially during these trying times of Covid and political divisions. Keep up the good fight!”
