Summer Tour

This summer I’ll be setting out on a three week solo marimba tour, performing as To Be Sure. The name of my solo project comes from the difficulty of being entirely confident in the decisions you make, post music degree. I choose to be a marimba player and I missed the freedom of touring the US in my earlier punk band. Combining those two passions took countless emails, lots of planning, some slight car modifications, and mostly just trying to be sure of what I’m doing. The latter is often the most difficult for artists. If I can haul my marimba up to a New York house show, a Minnesota retirement home, and Texas in July, you can damn sure do whatever it is you’re maybe not so sure about.

If you live in or near one of the cities I’m passing through, drop a line.
