In about six months, I will be going on a five week long tour, playing as ‘Toru’. The initial plan for this journey outlines a modest five or six states/cities within that period. I hope this will allow me to more intimately and leisurely join myself together with some of the most interesting locations and locale; an adventure as much about learning and making new friends, as it is presenting my own self to the unknown through the performance of music.
If all goes well during the first five weeks, my true hope with this expedition is that it will be never-ending, and that by the end of the first planned portion, I will continue moving state to state: excavating as much of each’s own singular culture, extemporaneously setting up fervent performances with the most individual local musicians, and very importantly, to lay about, slowly the absorbing the scenes and new experiences I hope to have.
Assuming all acts as I will it to, I may be traveling the US for a very long time, possibly some of Canada as well. So if anyone happens to read this and would like to spend some time introducing their city to me, please message me. I’m not wanting to only go to major cities, but am very interested in the smaller, hidden away, rural areas that are still holding some of America’s especial magic.
