14 months of chaos. ~soppy and quite boring~

So it’s coming to the end of the year, a time to reflect and look at what’s been done and achieved. I’m stretching this year to 14 months, because I can.
About this time 14/15 months ago I got taken on tour with Under The Influence to sell merch. Now, I’m there regular tour manager & merch guy. In the space of all the time that’s gone by I never thought I’d get to do in my career what I have done in such a short space of time. I’ve met some new (and now my very closest) friends. Seen some things I never thought I’d get to see (the White House, Logan square, Koln cathedral and so many more) and ate some of the best food (shout out Texas Road House, Stake & Shake and Mandy’s burger)
In such a short space of time I’ve seen 90% of the uk, A LOT of America, France, Belgium and a large portion of Germany.
I owe it all to a handful of people:
UTI: My best friends, my brothers.
Out For Tomorrow: for saying “fuck it, let’s take this dude to Germany….and around the uk” stuck with me now boys
Standing Tall: For being ST and just about getting through shit
Nylon Sky: for saying “fuck it, let’s take this dude to America”
My Family: For putting up with me being away loads and supporting every step
My friends back home: for putting up with me missing so much.

2014 is packed for me and to be honest….I’m fucking stoked on it.

Support my friends bands and help us all keep on the road by coming to shows.

Under The Influence 2013. 

A video update the guys did a while back talking about how the first part of the year was mad with touring and a few changes.

Reading 2013 was a whole bunch of fun.

I had the pleasure of being interviewed by Sunny Winter on my role as a Tour Manager & Merch Guy. Check out the interview here to read some tour stories from my time on the road with Under The Influence, tips for bands/people looking to start touring and other nonsense. All the thanks to Sunny for asking me to do this and getting me involved.
