It's true! The hyper original, exceedingly talented, wonderful music making folks at WOTE launched yesterday (and are already nearing $5,000/music video).
The reason I find this particularly interesting is it's the first time that I've seen something that is already highly commercially successful jump onto the platform (if you know any other examples, please share). Most Patreon creations are made by folks who use it to truly supplement the core of their craft; WOTE is channeling it specifically to fund the music videos that they've become famous for.
This will also put a big spotlight on Patreon itself (the site's creator is obviously aware of that, as he appears in WOTE's charming promo video).
I'll be watching this one with a lot of interest. Check it out for yourself, and definitely watch their promo vid.
