Just about finishing up my semester (Feb-July) abroad in Melbourne Australia. It was a blast--after I got used to the time & day changes. I went with my best friend, but made plenty of friends while I was there. It was a great experience and you can see some of my photos if you follow us on Instagram and/or Twitter.
It was complicated, to say the least to put together our first regional tour from afar by ourselves (shout out to Wilson at High Road Touring who let me experience this experience, but jumped in to help me book the last shows en route--booking agents earn every penny!). Everything became a bit more complicated but I managed to: book the tour, plan the release of the new EP through AWAL, set up PR through Livvy Bennett at Manimal PR (who's now off to greater experiences with her newly signed band), and Daniel Gill at Force Field PR. Whew.
This last week in Australia would be bitter sweet except Gyasi has arrived and we're out and about visiting Sydney and checking out the live music scene before our "Good-bye Australia Show" at Some Velvet Morning with Lola Sola. Stop in to say "hello" or "good-bye" and we'll hit the ground running when we hit Texas on July 4th.
Stay tuned for another post about show announcements!
