Today I embark on 24+ shows around North America opening for Ivan & Alyosha as they debut their new album. It's bittersweet leaving my loved ones and fair friends, but I'm excited to head out on the road again.
I haven't played a lot of solo shows this past year with the exception of a few short runs with Noah Gundersen as well as Boy & Bear. It feels weird leaving my band behind, but ultimately its a needed break from our all of the writing we've been doing for the next album. Coming back to these songs with fresh perspective will yield dividends.
Sometimes, people ask me what I pack on tour, so here's a quick list of what you see above:
Allen Edmonds Boots - I've never paid this much for shoes, but I do really like them.
Nike Internationalists - Just got these for my birthday. Comfort is king.
US Passport - so I can legally travel to Canada and back to the states.
Ray Ban Wayfarers Sunglasses - Another gift that I haven't lost yet. Thankfully.
Book by Pablo Neruda - A romanticist and poet who has a gift for enchantment.
Button Up - I try to dress to impress at least once per week...
Liquid Vitamins - It's hard to stay healthy on tour. My B12, D and Reishi mushrooms help.
Belt - My pants are constantly falling off otherwise.
Mr. Black's Denim Refresh - I basically wear the same pants during the whole tour...they need "freshening".
Would love to see everyone out on the road! If we are coming to your town, please comment below and let me know if you are going to be there. Would love to connect with folks!
