About this project

Hi there!

I am doing this Kickstarter to help me pull off a tour unlike any tour I've done before. This will be the first time I will be going out there solo in every aspect. I used to have label support, and now I don't. In the past I've had at least one other person in the passenger's and/or driver's seat, now it's just me. Here's the thing though; I didn't want this tour to be just me driving around playing acoustic shows. As lovely as those shows are, I want to do something that is a little more interesting both musically and visually. I plan on creating a set using programs and instruments that will let me fill the spaces with sounds that a band may have filled, totally on my own. Along with the music, I've gotten an awesome animator, Preston Spurlock, to create a trippy, unique animation inspired by my music to be projected while I play my songs. It will hopefully be an audio-visual experience that will be new and enticing for the listeners/viewers.

So, I come to those of you who are reading this (and beyond), humbly asking you for your support in making this idea a reality. Without you, I won't be able to pull this off, and I will forever be grateful for anything you can do to be a part of this project. The success of this Kickstarter will be owed to everyone who contributes to making it happen. I am nothing without you! 

xo,
Sami

Update! Here is a picture of the t-shirt design. I am also going to throw in a t-shirt with the $50 reward as well (couldn't modify that on the rewards):

Risks and challenges

The biggest set backs I can forsee are general delays in the production of certain rewards, like the t-shirts, for example. Since I have a limited time to get everything done before the plan is slated to kick off, I will have my hands quite full with getting everything out before I leave, but I'm going to try my best to do it! I will have a set schedule to get everything done before the tour to the best of my ability, and if anything comes up that throws my schedule off, I will make sure I get everything wrapped up soon after the tour ends. In the meantime, I will keep everyone up to date on how everything is going; from the tour to the rewards.
