Happy almost fall! I hope your days are getting cooler and your evenings, longer!
As you may have gathered, this Friday, I will be embarking on my first ever East Coast Tour! Touring has been a giant dream of mine for years but it has also scared the living daylights out of me, as one who dreams big but sometimes has a hard time with momentum and follow through. Needless to say, I am nervous, excited, absolutely terrified and completely overjoyed. A hell of a bag of emotions, but at least that means I’m alive! ;) I will be out on the road with my friend and fellow singer-songwriter, Ms. Kelsie McNair, who pens some of the truest, most singable love songs I’ve ever had the pleasure of hearing! I’m writing this message because I need your encouragement, your love, and some help! (My husband can tell you, this is something I’m terrible at-asking for help!) All I really need is a little push to reach some people I might not otherwise know how to reach and to get said people into seats at our shows so that they will buy cds and tshirts and help us pay for gas and eat pumpkin seeds, greek yogurt and string cheese!
Here’s how: Below this message is a list of all of our shows and their Event Page links- If you know someone in any of these cities, PRETTY PLEASE, tell them about a show, call them up on the phone, send them a personal email, and tell them how much you love them (AND THEN) tell them to come out and see us play. We would love to play to as many FULL houses as possible, and we’ve done our part to get in touch with venues, press contacts, local papers etc. Even still, the main thing that fills seats is good old fashioned friendly word of mouth! Our first show is Friday Night in Asheville, NC and then we play Charlottesville, VA on Saturday so if you have any friends in or near there…give em a holler today!
I’ll be posting a couple tour videos this week on my facebook page (www.facebook.com/skyezentz). Feel free to LIKE the page, share some videos, the more you can spread around, the better. This is how we independent artists get our names out there!
If you use Twitter and/or Instagram, I’m @skyezentz and Kelsie is @withlavandlace. Our tour hashtag is #autumnwandertour which we would love for you to use to help us promote the tour-if you don’t know what a hashtag or a Tweet is, NO WORRIES! ;)
