Hello friends! I'm putting something out into the world that I've been debating for a long time. That "thing" is my Patreon. I've decided to start a Patreon because everything that I've accomplished so far, I've done so without a record label, booking agent or manager. DIY at it's finest! I book the shows, write & arrange the songs, write press releases, play the shows, etc. Being a full-time independent musician is a LOT of work, but I can't imagine doing anything else.
So what is Patreon anyway? Patreon is sort of like Kickstarter but instead of pledging a one time amount, you pledge a smaller reoccurring monthly amount (like $1, $5, $10 or more). In exchange, you get Patreon only content, first looks (& listens!) to new releases, Tour videos, song demos, writings from the road, postcards, anything that I think you would enjoy!
I have some big goals coming up in the next few years - European tour, full band US tour, music videos, NEW MUSIC YAY!! - and to accomplish them, I need a little help from YOU! Patreon will allow me to have regular stipend so I can set my plans in motion for accomplishing my larger goals. Essentially you are becoming a part of my record label and getting cool exclusive content in exchange! How cool is that?!
I hope you'll join me on this journey into the next steps of my career. I'm excited for what the future holds!
Cliffrose T-Shirts are now available to purchase through the store page on this site (& you may recognize those T-shirt models 😉)! Online sales of books & CDs have been so incredible, and to show my gratitude, I wanted to offer another cool merch item for you all.
"Shook the dust from my bones & danced with the Cliffrose" is the first line from the title track of the album and it's a lyric that has continued to resonate with the meaning behind the album. These shirts first became available in person at the CD release party and we sold a lot of the inventory. Whats left is now up on the site, so get yours while they're still available! https://savannahkingmusic.com/store
”You can celebrate every day, just because you woke up to take another breath. You don't need a greater reason than that.”
A huge thank you to Jeff Miers for writing this piece on Cliffrose and asking insightful questions that allowed me to tell some backstory on the album. Thank you also to Dave Ostrowski for saying kind things and always being a positive friend, mentor, and colleague in the troubadour world! Read my article in The Buffalo News below and in print on June 2nd.
“It reads like the great American novel – young, talented musician hops in a camper van, leaves behind virtually everyone and everything in order to travel the back roads of America, while penning one of the best albums you’ll hear this year.”
Cliffrose was granted a glowing review by The Metal Dad! A huge thank you to Chip for listening to and writing this stunning piece. Read the full article HERE.
I am so excited to announce that I have been chosen as 1 of 10 finalists for the Wildflower Al Johnson Performing Songwriter Contest. ‘God Was Good To You’ & ‘Fresh Start’ from my new album were chosen out of 300 entries!

I did an interview and performance for KJZZ Phoenix the local NPR station. Thank you to the whole team at KJZZ especially Kaley Monahan and Scott Morrow for making me a part of their Tiny Desert Series.
