My MYO Story

The MYO tour to Australia and New Zealand was one of the best experiences of my life. Traveling and experiencing new cultures enriches you as a person and the fact that I could make music during that process was a truly indescribable experience, not to mention that the people you travel with are an experience all together... a good one though! I highly recommend a MYO tour to any musician. My only regret was that I didn't start going on them sooner!
