Why I Don't Tour
WHY I DON'T TOUR
Many people don't know this, but I chose not to be a touring artist (for now) because I have young children (ages 10-12).
I didn't know if I would ever "make it" because of that choice, but it was very clear to me I shouldn't put my career ahead of my family.
I believe the young years are the most impressionable and crucial time in kids' lives and they need a "father" around as much as possible.
So I decided to take the road less traveled, and simply be a recording artist, even if it meant I wouldn't be as successful, and even if it meant a harder journey for me.
I didn't completely give up my music career dreams either because I also believe that while it's vital for parents to be around as much as possible, it's equally important for kids to see their parents work hard, and pursue their passion, gifts and dreams. Do you agree?
I wanted to tell you about that part of my personal life because I get the question a lot about if I'll do a tour and when.
For now I'm very content as a recording artist, however, I definitely have the itch to perform live.
I'm very aware of the great amount of effort that goes into live performance, from forming the band , to reharsals, logistics, tour schedules, and much, much more.
I don't take those facts lightly.
What I can tell you is that when I decide to tour, I won't dabble - I'll jump in with two feet. It will be an amazing show.
