A 55 city tour that began on Craigslist.
How far would you travel to chase your dream? That is the same question singer/songwriter Laurelle, and musician and producer, 3PLE asked themselves when they discussed creating a 55 city tour which has since become the Make It Change Tour.
“I’m here in New York, I’m young, the time is now and let’s just be ambitious and let’s do it.”
“The idea started in 2015…it came from this movie called [The] Samaritan with Samuel L. Jackson and it starts with the quote ‘if you keep on doing what you’ve always done, you’ll keep on being what you’ve always been, nothing changes unless you make it change,’ and that [quote] literally changed my life.”
3PLE and Laurelle only met in early 2017, but their bond grew quickly which led to them deciding they should tour the country with their music. “Suddenly we became close friends and it just made sense,” said 3PLE. “We’re at the same point in our lives that we just wanted to make music so I said hey let’s do it and she was like awesome.”
Laurelle then explained, “we were writing music in Brooklyn Bridge Park, and said before we start I have this idea. I want to run it by you because I know you’re tired of doing the same old thing, and then he said how do you feel about going on tour?”
At the time, Laurelle was working a full-time job and using her non-working hours to write and create music. Yet, after some consideration, she came around to the idea and began to prepare for what life would look like. “I’m here in New York, I’m young, the time is now and let’s just be ambitious and do it.”
The duo did just that and created an Indiegogo page where they raised funds to kick-start their tour.
Since the conclusion of the campaign, they began their tour and have performed in Georgia, Arizona, Florida, North Carolina, Oklahoma, Pennsylvania, Texas, Virginia, and Washington D.C.
“We’re going to vlog every single day,” said Laurelle. “Every single day people will be able to watch us and see us interact with other artists and bands…The most important part about our vlog is to show people how it all began. People talk about all the time, when they’re famous, how they came from nothing but people don’t get to see it…it’s showing that yes, you can start with what you have because what you have is plenty.
The Make It Change Tour ends on December 5th, 2017. If you weren’t able to support during the Indiegogo campaign that’s alright, they have an additional donation page that you can use to help them continue to manifest their dream.
