So much has happened since the Tiny Desk Contest, it's hard to keep track! I've played many enjoyable shows and met some absolutely amazing people along the way. Needless to say, it's been a fun 2016 so far, and I am excited for the adventures that await await us in the second half of the year!
I'm happy to announce that I recently began working with a booking agent named Craig Grossman at Green Room Music Source. He's a super nice person who is also enthusiastic about helping me play out to new audiences across the country. So together Craig, me, and my husband Paul are forming a small but mighty team to tackle something that I've always dreamed of doing: TOURING!
Because of my disability, touring involves an extra set of logistical considerations, but I am blessed beyond words to have the support of my loving husband and my family as we embark on a few regional and national tours this fall. Touring will require a steep learning curve, but I am really excited for the challenge! I've been reading one of the best books ever (Tour:Smart by the Martin Atkins) to prepare myself, but I am sure there is no substitute for experience!
Anyway, here is the outline of the fall tour so far...
We're still in the planning stages, but it's coming together!
STATES WE'LL BE VISITING DURING OUR TOUR THIS FALL: (SEPTEMBER - NOVEMBER)
- North Dakota
- New York
- New York
- Washington DC
- North Carolina
I wanted to share this list because I have a request: if you'd like to help me spread the word about events in your state, please email me! The advice, support, and/or assistance from the people who actually live in these areas will be truly invaluable. It takes a village to create a successful tour, literally and figuratively!
It will be so fun to play music and connect with people in different parts of the country - Paul and I can't wait to see you on the road!
