Over the past week I've been out on the road with a band called Jamestown Story and a solo artist Kieren Smith. It's my first tour since Sing It Loud ended. I've been having an incredible time. It's new, different, and something I've always wanted to do.
Some highlights thus far would have to be on my night drive from Illinois to Michigan.n It started snowing a ridiculous amount and my friend Kieren and I decided we should stop at a motel for the night So we stopped at one and the power was completely out. We decided we should try to go into the office just in case, so we go in and there's a guy at the desk with a flashlight shining at us, he couldn't give us a room because of the power outage. It was very spooky like out of some horror movie. Kieren and I decided to drive to the next motel we could find which was about 25 minutes away.
So we get back on the road driving 35 mph while semi trucks fly past us going as fast as possible. We finally get to the next one and sure enough the motel was powerless. Basically, we ended up driving to where our final destination was and not getting there until really late. It was so ridiculous that it was funny! I couldn't stop laughing about it. The next day we went to this burger place called Krazy Jim's Blimpy Burger in Ann Arbor Michigan. We heard about it from watching the show Man Vs Food. If you haven't seen the show, watch it just know it'll make you extremely hungry! This food joint has over two billion different ways you can order your burger... insane, I know! You can get as many patties on it as you want and I ended up getting 5 on mine. I thought to myself, "When in Rome."
I've been having a blast on this tour, it feels incredible to be back on the road again doing what I love! Currently as I'm writing this blog I'm in my hotel room hearing some friends of mine snoring so loud that I think the walls are shaking haha. Also, I just released a new song on iTunes called "Beauty Of Everyday." Make sure to check it out and have a wonderful weekend!
