Sunset Sessions Tour to Benefit Local Communities Through Travels
Michele Clark's Sunset Sessions, a music industry convention and talent showcase have announced the first ever SUNSET SESSIONS TOUR.
Featuring four GREAT alumni acts: Duncan Sheik, Alpha Rev, Courrier & Laura Warshauer, this first 20 city tour is the first leg which will be followed up by a second leg in early 2013. It will be hitting all of the major cities including Vegas, Denver, New York, Philadelphia as well as very important music markets that have valuable community oriented Triple A Radio stations such as Wilmington NC, Columbia SC and many more.
The goal of the tour is to give the radio stations that are involved in each market an opportunity to choose charity or cause that is important to them or their community and we would use this evening of talent to be supportive of that charity in any ways we can collectively come up with - ie, bring a toy for a "toys for tots" or bring a canned good, or do a $1 tix override to benefit a local school, do an artist meet-n-greet, or beach clean up together etc. some markets there is no presenting station yet - but the vision is to have artists tour together, sharing resources, (tour bus, road manager, merch person, publicists, promo people, labels, managers etc) to benefit each other, the radio station and the community however they can.
Sunset Sessions is a key opportunity for musicians and industry power players alike, introducing record labels, radio station programmers, music supervisors, managers, agents and others to emerging and established artists. The convention has been influential in the launches and careers of hundreds of artists over it's 15 year history including The Black Keys, Ryan Adams, Fun, Sia, James Blunt, Zac Brown Band, Grace Potter & The Nocturnals, Pete Yorn, Jack Johnson, Five for Fighting and Jason Mraz. It has also hosted many legendary favorites such as Stevie Nicks, Chris Isaak, Richie Sambora, Melissa Etheridge, Jimmy Cliff, Lucinda Williams, Jewel, Third Eye Blind, Billy Corgan and Wayne Coyne.
