I’ve been interviewing some of my absolute favorite musicians for months now for my new Youtube series about what goes on behind-the-scenes in the lives of hardworking independent musicians. The first thing I ask is for everyone to tell me about their first tour. The answers I’ve been getting are amazing, surprising, and incredibly varied! Some of my friends went on big, pro, fancy first tours, while others had the “kamikaze disaster” first tour experience. Everyone got a little nostalgic talking about it, which is what made this episode so much fun to put together. I definitely learned from everyone I talked to and I’m excited to share it all in this video. — Rebecca Loebe
