England Tour Tentative Schedule, Still Need Logistical Help!

So I’ve finally settled on a tentative schedule of English cities that seem relatively good for acoustic music. But I still need help finding sofas to crash on and musical opportunities* most places! If you have friends in these places please share with them, and if you can help please fill out my form: goo.gl/forms/Qjs9ojMge19LE4MG3
-WED MAY 3-4: Canterbury (may move around Kent)
-FRI MAY 5-6: Brighton
-SUN MAY 7-8: Southampton (may move around Hampshire)
-TUES MAY 9: Reading
-WED MAY 10-17: LONDON!! (for Lost Evenings but free the days before and after)
-WED MAY 17-18: Colchester (may move around Essex)
-FRI MAY 19-20: Birmingham area?
-SUN MAY 21: Chester
-MON MAY 22: Manchester
-TUES MAY 23: Sheffield
-WED MAY 24: Nottingham
-THURS MAY 25-May 30: LONDON!!
*Opportunities I’m looking for (I just want to sing for as many people as possible!):
-opening slots for local artists/bands (or even just having a local musician buddy would be a big help!)
-house gigs
-groups/communities that help out/give exposure to independent artists
-busking/open mic recommendations
I’m very excited for what I’m cooking up. Thanks and see all you British people soon!

Introduction/Interview by Jersey Beat + Tour Planning Update

First off I just wanted to share an interview I did a little while back with my good friend Deb at Jersey Beat. It gets into my weirdly encouraging history and background as well as my wildly ambitious goals and vision for the future. As you might expect, my number one inspiration, Frank Turner, figures into multiple aspects of it!
My epic DIY tour is coming together but if you can help in any way, especially in any part of England, I would love to hear from you! Again it’s most convenient for me if you start with my little Google Form that I created for the occasion, and I will contact you when I’m ready to plan for your city.
The ideal type of performance for me is to open for an artist that has a draw in that city, if you’re one of those, or know one (I’d love to join in on both one-off shows and tours!). I’m also really interested in performing live sessions for web series, local/indie radio, etc. if you can connect me with any of those.
Other than that I’m just really looking forward to the ride! I think in many places it will largely end up as open mics/showcases and even busking, but that will still be an exciting adventure of new cities to see, new stages to play, and many new people to meet! I hope, and expect, that it’s only the start of something big and wonderful.

I’m going on tour and I have no idea what I’m doing! =D

This year I will embark on a series of 100% DIY tours where I have no idea what will happen! Your help with booking, promoting and/or temporarily putting a roof over my head will maximize the chances of success, though.

This is one of those things that needs to be fleshed out in goofy video form:

Man, it’s been a wild ride recently. I realized I never wrote about all the awesome things I did in England including a house gig in Essex, songwriters club at the Monarch (which you can watch in full here thanks to Mel), spontaneously opening for Chris T-T and Non Canon, and more!! You were good to me, England, and I can’t wait to see you again in a few months!
Thank you, friends! I hope I get to see you on the road. More soon…
