Want music to come back? We do too. The Music Coming Back Tour is all about real musicians playing real music for real fans.  Three breakthrough artists are hitting the road this spring, and we want you to be a part of the tour! Just who are these artists you ask? Read on...

kRi & Hettie are a great blend of neo-soul, hip-hop, and even some acoustic guitar. They sing beautiful songs about love and heartache through the eloquent guise of poetry.

Lotus Blake is pure and rock 'n' roll. With a full band and a screaming Les Paul, the "Blake" crosses the psychedelic '60s with shoegaze and some theatric dramatics. Dark, rough, and alluring, Lotus Blake plays some killer tunes.

Last but certainly not least is Corey Brumback, the honest and emotional songwriter of the label who, using only a guitar and his voice, cuts through the BS and delivers streams of consciousness about his life in Indiana. He'll be backed by a full band this time, which puts Corey's music-from-the-heart center stage.

So where are we gonna be playing? Here's what have lined up:

  • 5/18 Awendaw, SC at Awendaw Green
  • 5/19 Charleston, SC at The Backstage
  • 5/20 Knoxville, TN at Barley's Taproom & Pizzeria
  • 5/21 Wilmington, NC at TBA

We'll also be doing some live on-air radio performances along the way so you can tune in to check us out!

What are we going to do with the money? Three grand is a lot, but touring isn't cheap. Here's a breakdown of how we plan to spend the cash that you guys are so graciously pledging:

  • 8 people, 1 van, 5-6 days (total travel time)
  • $1,500 for van rental, insurance, and gas
  • $1,000 for lodging (cheap hostels and hotels)
  • $500 for food and beverage (you can still buy us drinks after the show!)

So, what do you get out of this? A shitload of awesome rewards! Check out the list on the side - we're offering everything from customized mini Louisville Slugger baseball bats, flash drives with all the content you can handle, to hanging out with the artists and getting a private acoustic show. If you have any questions about them, just shoot us an e-mail or message and we'll get back to you as soon as possible. 

Thanks for checking this out! On behalf of kRI & Hettie, Lotus Blake, and Corey Brumback, we sincerely appreciate all of your pledges, support, and love!
