music on the road 2016

Busking Across the U.S. 

Who says you need to be signed to go on a music tour? 

This summer I combined three of my favorite components — music, traveling and writing — into one trip. Packing my baby Casino-like companion and portable amp, I spent the summer in some of the most culturally rich American cities, soaking in and contributing to each music scene. Some destinations were familiar to me — like Nashville, D.C. and my birth city, Atlanta — but most were new.

My goal in busking across the states was to learn. And learn I did.
