|I'm one of the co-founders of a startup called Bundio that enables artists and record labels to set up direct-to-fan subscriptions to their content. Prior to getting into startups I was a singer-songwriter but about two years ago I put music to the side for the most part. It’s a real problem because I strongly believe those that build the best platforms are actually users of those platforms. I came to the realization that I need to get back into music so I can be a user of the platform and build something remarkable. I also realized that money wasn’t going to be well-spent signing onto a new one year lease for $1k / month in Boston.|
So I’m getting out of the office and hitting the road!
On January 13th I will embark from Guilford, CT (my hometown) on a cross-country tour playing/recording DIY concerts, making field recordings of artists (that I’ll add to a Bundio subscription), and meeting up with other startup founders as I pass through their towns.
55 days on the road,
25+ states (and Vancouver, BC),
30 shows (hopefully)
I’ll be documenting the entire journey daily on the site I created for the tour: http://housecallstour.com
How can you help? A number of ways: connect with me if you are on my route (http://housecallstour.com/route) or know someone that is. I’m particularly interested in meeting up with those working on digital media, social media, and music startups. As I said above, I’m trying to put on DIY shows in living rooms and houses (Edit: adding link to my music - http://housecallstour.com/about_drj). These will be house concerts (tame), not house parties (wild), so even if you haven’t hosted something like this before please do consider - it will be fun! Joining me for each show will be local performers. I could also use some help with couches to crash on along the way.
Anything I’m missing? Please let me know if you have any ideas for me or other ways you think the HN community can help!
