A EUROPEAN TOUR
I’m coming to EUROPE!!! Can you believe it?!?!
Yeah. Me neither.
Honestly, I still can’t fathom that I will in the UK in LESS THAN A WEEK - touring across England, Scotland, Germany, Belgium, The Netherlands and France. I mean...it’s wild. But the album has been getting some great press over there, so this seemed like the next logical step. Despite what you may believe, I’m not only doing this for the food. Sure, croissants and high tea factored into my decision, but it’s mostly about the music. Or at least 49% about the music.
So here’s where I’ll be playing:

A REVOLUTIONARY PROJECT
Today Jack released an EP and launched a website designed to help artists and content creators. It’s called Patreon (pronounced Pay-tree-on), and it’s kind of like Kickstarter, but instead of funding one big project, it allows artists to have a constant stream of support, based on how prolific they are.
Jack is giving his EP away for free, but asking that his superfans commit to giving him one dollar per video he releases. So if he makes two videos, they’ll pay two dollars, and if he makes no videos, they pay no dollars. Makes sense, right? Here’s a video we made that explains in more detail how it works. (I’m the one drawing the stick people.)
On my Patreon page, you’ll see that I’m offering my fans demos in exchange for their patronage. Being on the road has inspired me to write more, and I’m looking forward to sharing my new material with whoever wants to hear it. There’s a good chance that many of the songs I’m writing now won’t end up on my next album, so it’s comforting to know that they will be heard by someone. My hope is that sharing these demos will help me be a more prolific and focused writer. That I will be able to finish many of the songs that would have otherwise been forgotten or set aside. And that in the end, I will have a better idea of which songs to include on the album, based on my fans’ insight and constructive feedback.
Thanks again for your support. Here’s to Europe and to all the songs this trip will inspire!
