I often joke at my shows, regarding my first attempt at touring, about how stupid of a decision it was to quit my job, move out of my house, sell my car, and move into a mini van in order to tour. But sometimes the life we want to live and the person we want to be requires us to make risky decisions--decisions that don't make much sense to everyone else. Boldness and foolishness often come with the same results. But the decisions make sense to us because we feel that we can only be ourselves by following through with those prompts and yearnings.
Well, regardless of the sentiment of making risky decisions, I'm doing it again. The last tour left me burnt out and exhausted. But I'm encouraged by those who have shared what my music has done for them and the support of those who won't give up on me. It's because of you I'm doing it again. Only the future will tell if I have you to thank or to blame.
You can follow my travels on Instagram and Twitter @jakedeckermusic, and here of course at jakedeckermusic.com/blog. Also, take a look at my tour dates by clicking the "TOUR" link above, and see if I'm playing near you. I'll continue updating the schedule as we go.
Thanks for your support and encouragement! I hope to see you on the road!
