- What is your favorite venue to play and why?
9:30 Club certainly is one of the best for consistent hospitality (who doesn’t love a ton of merch and those cupcakes?) I loved playing the brand new Mission Ballroom in Denver recently – they have a coffee cart on the loading dock and the PA system blew my mind.
- What are 3 things that you can’t live without on tour?
1.) A flashlight
2.) Berocca Vitamins
3.) Master Tour!
- What is your secret to staying healthy on the road?
When I toured Australia we played mainly Falls Festival shows so we had a lot more time off than usual. We did epic 10-13 mile sun-rise hikes every morning. When I’m on a regular fly date or bus runs I don’t get any time off for dedicated exercise however, I usually clock a minimum of 4 miles per day on my health app. I don’t drink alcohol and I try to eat as healthy as possible.
- What was your first touring gig and when?
My first touring gig was for The X Factor (UK). Myself and 4-5 other TMs were hired each year to take the top 10 finalists to their PA’s once they left the competition.
- What’s your ideal city to have a day off? Why? What do you recommend to do here?
I recently had a day off in Bangkok which was pretty special. We went to Chatuchak Weekend Market, ate incredible Thai street food, buzzed around the city on tuktuks, visited a temple and convinced our tuktuk driver to arrange a private long tail boat ride along the Chao Phraya.
“I spend hours, days, months on Master Tour. I plan my tours like clockwork and ensure that every question an artist or crew member could ask is already plugged in. It’s an incredibly efficient tool.”
