Hey friends! I'm touring all by my onesie for one month out to NY and back to promote my new coloring book & album, Make Believe.

About this project

Starting on Sept. 24th, I will be touring by myself out to New York and back to promote my newest album, Make Believe, which comes in a coloring book that I drew.  I'm bringing along my piano, guitar, banjo, dulcimer, and balalaika, and will be performing songs from Make Believe, along with a couple of new ones.  I'm so excited to share these songs with you, and to have the opportunity to embark on what will most certainly be a very memorable adventure.  I'll be taking requests, chatting with you, and making each show special.  

Here is one of the new songs I'll be playing for you, along with some of the art you'll see:

PLEASE NOTE:  Dates to be announced will be available shortly on

Since I will be driving nearly 7000 miles by myself, without another 

artist to split the cost of gas, I’m inviting you to be my tour buddies.

 I am the epitome of a DIY, super independent artist, which means 

that I don’t always get a guarantee at each venue that is large 

enough to cover the cost of gas.  I’d really love to be able to get to 

all of my shows, and would so appreciate your participation in 

getting me there. In return for your show of love, I have put together 

a list of rewards, which you can view on the right, which will really

 make you a part of this adventure!

A personal postcard from me from one of my stops on the tour, telling you all about my exciting adventures!

A signed, fancy shmancy Limited Edition tour poster with all of the dates of my Make Believe Tour.


A signed set list from one of my Make Believe Tour gigs. 


Your name +2 on the list for the Gayle Skidmore show of your choice.

A scarf, knitted just for you, by me, in the colour and pattern of your choice!

One of the ORIGINAL PRINTS from my MAKE BELIVE COLORING BOOK. Choose your favorite drawing from the book and the original, exclusive print is yours! (11x17)

I will create a video of me singing & playing the song of your choice and dedicate it to you on youtube.

I will write you a song with the [appropriate] subject matter of your choice and dedicate it to you on youtube. I'll also name it after you.

VERY IMPORTANT:  Please make sure you include your shipping address.  Also, please add a buck or 2  in your donation amount if you are outside the United States! CANADIAN ORDERS (for physical merch)=ADD $1 USD / INTERNATIONAL ORDERS (for physical merch)=ADD $3 USD
