As some of you know already, I am going on tour starting this September. I am stoked!!! We hope this tour not only inspires you to keep music in your life. I truly believe that music and heal and save lives. This show takes that belief to the stage.
Supporting me on all dates for this tour is the awesome pop duo, “Us”. They met at my house (cupid, holla) during my “We Could Happen” music video shoot, and got married a year later. Their love is real, and their music embodies the mission of #PlayLiveBreathe. I am honored to be sharing the stage with them during this tour. Check out their video for their single, “Never Gonna Leave You” here.
The first leg of the tour is Washington DC (September 6th) and New Jersey (September 8th). Joining us and… well, “Us” is none other than singer/songwriter Ryan Bandong and his talented band, “Mitchell Grey”. Also supporting during those tour dates is the amazingly talented and beautiful Jenny Suk, whom you may have seen in some of my videos. If you haven’t already, cop Mitchell Grey’s album here and also take a listen to Jenny’s newest creation. Also joining us for the DC show is my good friend and heartbreaker musician, Vince Lacsamana.
The third date is reunion of all sorts. I went to school in Boston at Berklee College of Music, and left after just one year. I am happy to be coming back to play at the school-owned venue, Red Room 939. I played an open mic here when I first arrived to school, and watched a lot of musical magic happen in that cafe. The special guest artist joining us for this special Beantown show is none other than Mr. Gabe Bondoc. It’s been years since the days when we used to collab, jam, and play back to back shows with each other— and I think it’s time for that to change. I’m so glad to be reuniting with my college town, and also a friend and brother who I’ve been missing since 2010. Check out his latest stuff on his YouTube channel.
The fourth and fifth shows keep the momentum going by taking us all the way to Texas with R&B crooner, Jeff Bernat, and the songbird Alyssa Bernal. Alyssa was one of the first singers I ever watched on YouTube as “Lyss”, and am proud of what she’s accomplished after all these years. Don’t forget to check out Jeff’s latest album here, and Alyssa’s newest video here. With Jeff’s smooth rhymes and Alyssa’s super soothing voice, I can guarantee that Texas is in for a treat. Holla, Texans.
This brings us to our homecoming shows back in California. Anaheim (Irvine), LA, San Diego, and SF— four of my favorite cities in the state, we’re coming to you with an amazing lineup of musician heartthrobs galore. Firstly, my brother from another mother and Internet music PIONEER, Jeremy Passion is joining us for the Anaheim (Irvine), San Diego, and SF dates. I look up to him for his love for music and insane musicality. Passion was the first to serenade us on the world wide web with his hit, “Lemonade”. Our other guest for the four shows is Glee Project’s Cameron Mitchell. Cameron has been a good friend of mine since we met at the show’s callbacks, and has been creating lots of new music to share with everyone, and has also been dropping YouTube videos here and there. I know he’s excited to finally hit the stage out here playing his music in his new home state. I can’t wait to share the stage with my brothers in music, and hope all of my homies out here can come out to support these last shows.
These artists help us (and Us) complete the message of the Play.Live.Breathe:MUSIC tour! I am so proud to call all of them my friends! My main thing in music is to bring people together… And I’m glad to be sharing this tour with all of the artists mentioned above, and of course with all of YOU who will be attending these shows.
