Hello everyone! Been a while since I’ve written in, hope you are all doing well. I’ve been mad busy working on music and doing some spot dates traveling. Currently writing from Jakarta Indonesia (who would have thought I’d ever come here?). Im preparing my show outfit as we speak, traditionally I like to keep things pretty casual on stage as opposed to wearing an overly flashy outfit. I used to dress up more “show like” in the past but now I keep it low key with my leather or denim jacket, a bandanna and of course my favorite boots. Before the show I’ll have my band come in and we’ll talk over the set, have a toast for good luck and hit the stage. I love touring Europe, I’ve been over 3 times now and I am eager to go back each and every time. Oslo Norway is one of my favorite cities in the world alongside dublin and barcelona. Would love to hit italy one day but haven’t had the chance to go thus far. One thing I’ll always carry on me when I’m traveling is pair of good speakers. I love having music blasting in the dressing room before and after the show and of course on the bus when the day is done and it’s time to relax. Touring is such a massive undertaking, I have anywhere from 10-16 people on my crew who take care of the various sectors of touring. Examples are audio engineers, tour management, VIP meet/greet concierge, merch guy, road manager, band members, lighting, video wall, and guitar tech. Until next time! Love you all.
