A Tiny Tiny Tour Recap

Our Tiny Tour in the mid/southeast ended last night in Knoxville, TN, and I didn’t want to let any time go by before I thanked those of you that helped make it a success. We enjoyed ourselves; enjoyed making memories. I even fell in love with a new favorite band - Bandit - at one of our Nashville shows with them, Sean Michel, Foreign War and ‘68. We got to eat Cookout thanks to all the Redeemer House kids in North Carolina. We made new friends in Boiling Springs, saw old friends in Georgia and South Carolina, and had great conversations every evening with folks that came to join us.

To our friends and fans, I appreciate you for taking a night out of the week to come support us at a show. I know you could have been anywhere else in the world, and it was an honor to have you with us. I hope you enjoyed the new performance, and I hope that it will not be a year until I’m back in that area again. 

One of the deep joys of revisiting old spots is seeing the growth in the artists that I get to perform with - many of whom have played two or three shows with me now, when I’m in the area. It’s great to see poets, musicians, and artists progress over time. 

I know it’s already April, but the year feels young, and we’re gearing up for a great season, with some changes, some sameness, and hopefully some progression of our own. With all sincerity, thank you for continuing to follow along. Keep an ear peeled, because we’re just getting started. 

Happy Easter. Turn off your phones and enjoy one another tomorrow. By the grace of God, we’ve got a lot to celebrate. 

Levi

My Friends In White Collar Sideshow Are Going To Germany

In 2009, I toured with White Collar Sideshow for the first time. A mutual friend, Doug Van Pelt of HM Magazine, introduced me to T, their frontman, at Cornerstone that year. That was back when he still had seven million piercings all over his face and hadn’t lost himself in the world of Maury mornings. 

At any rate, I fell in love with what they were doing. Their boldness in sharing a painful testimony on touchy subjects, and the excellence with which they did it, encouraged me. Inspired me. I toured with them quite a bit over the years leading up to my marriage, when Brandi and I moved into their 35ft RV full time… 

I don’t think it was the easiest year of our life - two newlyweds trying to make the road work with three other people and their dogs, and whoever else happened to be touring with us at the time - but we were family, and it really felt like that. T, V and the Pig are some of my best friends in the whole world, and they gave Brandi and me a chance to be together, to serve and minister to people who’s stories resonated with our own, and to have a sense of community when so many people are alone out on these highways. I wouldn’t trade it. 

Right now, WCS is in the middle of a fundraiser in hopes of attending the Steiger Mission School in East Germany. They’re about a quarter of the way funded, with 9 days to go. The school has a track specific to equipping touring artists for being sent into the world beyond church walls for effective mission. You can read all about it - including their specific prayer and financial needs - here. 

We’re excited about what the Lord has in store for White Collar Sideshow.  If you’ve got fifteen minutes today, and maybe an extra fifteen bucks to spare, will you check it out and consider helping them get to Germany?

Brandi took this picture of me at Coffee & Tea Collective. She got a latte, and I’ve gotta say, I don’t know if I’ve had one better. Excellent espresso. I think we spend more money on coffee than food on tour. I wish We had friends that worked at every good coffee shop in the world and that all of them would send us coffee all the time. Haha. | #swtinytour  (at Coffee & Tea Collective)

It was me and Brandi’s 3 year wedding anniversary today. I can’t believe it. I love you, B. “I swear your smile saved my life. I swear your touch made me whole.” (at home)
