I’ve begun to feel like I am a nomad. I spend most of my days in airports, airplanes and hotels. Never really any consistency, and home has begun to feel less and less like home. I am, of course, OK with this--more than OK. Everything is exciting and new every day. I get the opportunity to play shows to amazing crowds of people almost every night, and when that's not the case, I’m jumping from state to state to visit radio stations, record songs and pretty much everything else imaginable.
The past three years have been a crazy ride for me, but the past six months have been the best so far. Right now, I’m sitting in my hotel room in Los Angeles. It’s 7:30 a.m., and I’m getting ready to head to San Diego for a radio station visit. I'm getting pretty excited for the Hey Monday tour coming up here; I didn't realize it starts in only 12 days. So much to do before it starts.

I’m going to be very glad to be getting back to at least some consistency. Load in, hang out, play, load out, hang out, sleep, then miraculously wake up at the next venue. Buses, loud generators, vans, clubs, hanging out at the merch table, and watching my guitarist eat Doritos covered in spray cheese. Such are the joys of a normal tour schedule. The airplanes, drivers and sweet hotels are great, but the tours are when things become real. It’s when I get to see just how far my music has reached and which areas have connected the most. Needless to say, I’m pretty excited about the East Coast dates.
I'm pretty sure it's going to be a great fall. My favorite season, my favorite things. Rad stuff.
