I'm going to be touring as a duo, with the incredible Burkhard Mayer-Andersson on drums!!  Ladies and Gentlemen, he's coming all the way from Germany to join me, so I want a set up a killer tour.

We are going to be able to play just about ANYWHERE: Clubs, bars, galleries, studios, back yards, front yards, kitchens, living rooms, abandoned buildings, pretty much anywhere where people can gather who want to hear music and where we won't get into too much trouble for making some noise.

So, where and how will this tour happen, you might ask.  Well, quite honestly, I'm asking the same thing.  This will be a full on DIY tour.  I'm a DIY kinda girl, but most of my DIY projects have only been successful because of all the wonderful people that have come around to support what I'm doing.

I find that booking shows to be one of those most challenging parts of working as a musician. SO MUCH of it is about networking, and knowing the right people.  Nonetheless, this is a challenge I'm going to take, and it's gonna work out great!

BUT it requires help from YOU!

As a duo, these are the dates we will be looking for shows:

NOW, Here's where  I would love YOUR help.  Questions:
