A lot of people have asked about when and where I am touring this year. So, I hope I can answer those questions, along with a BIG ANNOUNCEMENT about a show I am so excited about!!
When: I have been taking a short break from performing for two reasons:
A. To focus on the wedding planning I have to do-- (but, I can't help it that I secretly like planning my shows more than my wedding...shhh...don't tell anyone. It's just that music is my most favorite thing ever! [besides my fiancé])
B. To focus on writing and recording my EP (which always takes longer than you think it will, and it takes time to write the absolute best songs with the best style in order to present the music to my favorite people ever- the people that listen to the music! [besides my first favorite, my fiance])
Where: It takes a lot of money to tour and the farther out you travel, the more money it takes. Thanks to social media blogs and other platforms, my music has been able to reach across the globe. I am so grateful for technology and how my music can be heard by people practically anywhere! But, the downside for me is that I personally cannot reach everyone with a live show. The cost of touring is greater than the money usually made on a tour, which makes it hard without an investor or label backing us. And in Nashville, no one is playing for "fun." Every musician is here to make a living, so it's kind of offensive to them if I ask them to play with me as my backing band for free. So, every show I do costs money, which is why we have been traveling to places where we can easily drive to from Nashville and not have to spend the night.
BUT! I am so excited to announce my solution to reach anyone, anywhere!!! March 23 at 7:30pm CST, my band and I will perform a Stage-It Show. Stage-It is a website where musicians can broadcast a performance and anyone, anywhere, can watch the show from the comfort of their home on a laptop. WOOHOO! I can't wait! And, there will be a prize for the top supporter of the night- an original song written by me, on the topic or idea of your choice! GUYS! I'm SO EXCITED!!!! Tickets are pay-what-you-can and go on sale....NOW! There's only a limited number, so grab them while you can!! Click Here!
Sometimes I think I'm crazy. But sometimes, I think I know exactly what I'm doing.
