how come you arent able to tour this year? im hoping to make it to the thing in Manhattan in March 2014 :)
Touring is really expensive, exhausting, and time-consuming. After five years of touring, I wasn't left with a whole lot of money or energy for it anymore and I wanted to spend my time on other things (like making YouTube videos and running my etsy shop). I'm still traveling for conferences and individual bigger shows I get invited to play like the Kansas one you mentioned, but I don't have plans to go on a longer tour in the foreseeable future.
