Every artist dream is to go on tour, performing in different states and countries, meeting new people, eating new food and just embarking on new experiences. Last year I got that opportunity, shout out to Murs, I learned a lot on that tour and it cost us a lot to go on a 2 month tour as an independent artist. We didn’t get paid for the shows, we had to sell merch to get to the next show, there were times were we thought we might have to go home, but there was so many people that wanted us to win, so we had to keep pushing and we won; some of us have left Black Cloud Music but it was best for everybody.
We’re currently putting a Common Ground tour together by ourselves, which consist of us doing all the booking, negotiating prices, figuring out transportation, hotel rooms & other expenses; while also thinking about, if we even have a fan base in that city or state, we might have to do some shows for free just to plant that seeds and another things is waiting for venues to set something up or confirm shows, which is of course understandable, but we just want to get it all lined up. We do appreciate those venues and promoters out of state that are helping us out and giving us a chance, who knows how many people will come to the shows, but we hope to meet some new people.
The first tour with Murs, we were out for 2 months straight, as for this tour we will actually just be out at days and weeks at a time and traveling back home for it’s The Common Ground & to get our money up & also handle some business; we’re just going to be performing out of state more often. I don’t know when this tour is going to end, were just going to continuously try to book shows and to be out there. But yo, this shit is nowhere near easy but I fucking love it, I truly love this shit, this is what I live for. I was terrified of doing this because being an indie artist like myself, Curtiss King & Stevie Crooks, sometimes you don’t have the capital to do what you need to do; so you gotta figure out how to do it your way until you get that capital or investor. I don’t want to fail my bros and myself, but I realized GOD wont let me fail, I wont let me fail, Lesa J wont let me fail & my bros wont let me fail.
Right now I have the most confident in world that this will be a successful tour and new venture. I’ve been delegating BTYF work to my bro Isai, shout out to Isai, this dude is very good people and he hustles. Just trusting people with my baby, I always laugh when I say that but it’s my baby, it’s growing into something beautiful. Thank you for supporting me on this journey to all the people that know me, know that I only have love in my heart. To the ones that don’t know me when you see me say what’s up or hit me on these social networks.
