We’re going on tour in 2017 and want to get you involved! In the new year, we’re hoping to expand the production of our live show, play more cities than ever before and record a new studio album. That’s where you come in! To help achieve some of these goals, we’re teaming up with PledgeMusic for the launch of this tour and, quite fittingly, the release of our new live album, The Woodstock Sessions. We’re excited to share all of the different opportunities there are to have you come along for the ride!

Below there are not only opportunities to get involved with the tour and pre-order the new live album, but exclusive experiences for backstage passes, writing our set list, soundcheck tickets, postcards from the road and much more!

Once you make a purchase, you’ll gain exclusive access to a special part of the site via the Access Pass. Here, I’ll be posting exclusive updates all throughout the tour. It could be video updates, photos, songs, anything!
