Next year I'm planning a trip through the US to promote my singing career, find out the best place to move to grow as a musician, and to help get as much exposure as I possibly can. Additionally, I'd love to see my friends who love all over the country and to sing for their individual communities.
Ideally, I'll be able to sing for influential theatre reps in a pseudo-professional but non-audition setting (I'll come back and audition officially when appropriate) as well as earn enough through love-offerings to pay for the next leg of the trip.
What I need from you, my supporters, is a little ground-work in your community to help me determine a route, schedule, and itinerary. So far I've had invitations from friends in New York, California and Texas but I know I can go to many more places and sing for a lot of people. Ideally, I want to start in June and go until I've exhausted my funds and/or performance opportunities!
Even if I've already heard from you, please send me a message saying, "Yes! I want you to come sing for my town during this time-frame!" If you want to support me, but don't have any local clout, no problem! I'll need lodging and financial support (I'll be setting up a donations account to help me reach my goals - I'd like to start with $2,000 before I embark).
Please help me make the next step on my journey! Thank you, as always, for your continued support!
It's been brought to my attention by some professional colleagues that this will most likely prove to be a fruitless endeavor. I am reworking the logistics, but it looks more likely that I will instead go to New York City for a month during the peak of audition season and do as many auditions as possible. More to come soon.
