My name is Sheridan, and I write, perform, and record music as We Hold Hands And We Jump.
I've been doing this for as long as I can remember and I intend to keep doing it until the day I die. Creating and sharing my art fills me with a great feeling of relief and joy, a feeling I can compare to nothing else. It's no secret that I'm not doing very well, health-wise. But knowing that there are people out there whose lives have been affected, albeit in a very tiny way, from something I do, gives me a lot of things: hope, a sense of belonging, validation, release.
I put out new music about once a season, which evens out to three-to-four times a year. I practice every day for about an hour and a half just to maintain my current skill level - this is not something that comes easily. Printing costs, equipment costs, production software costs, recording costs... they all add up and make it so hard to keep this up sometimes. When times are tough, as they often are, and I struggle to make ends meet, as we all often do, it can be hard to find a way to keep this going. If you're anything like me, you'll understand.
So, I'm starting the Sunrise Club back up. What this is is a way to directly support what I'm doing - think of it like a Patreon, basically. You can donate, and it goes directly into supporting We Hold Hands And We Jump. You get access to some bonus content too, as a thank you - I have a big back catalog of unreleased music you can pilfer through if you like. I'll shout you out on the livestreams and in the liner notes of every album released while you're a member, and you'll get access to new music a bit before everybody else does.
Really, though, you get what this is - a tangible way to support this thing that I care about and spend a lot of money on. To be real with you, I do make a little money from whhawj, but it's quite a bit less than the amount I spend on whhawj. I wouldn't ask for support unless I needed it.
If you can't or don't want to donate, and all you can do is listen, that's just as important to me. Really. I don't mean to put pressure on anyone.
