Chadwick Stokes (Dispatch, State Radio) Innovative Touring Venture - The Sold Out 'Living Room Tour'
Chadwick "Chad" Stokes (Dispatch, State Radio) will be setting out on an innovative and original touring venture, his first ever Living Room Tour.
Already sold out, the Living Room Tour is a massive THANK YOU to fans that have joined Stokes over the years to support State Radio, Dispatch and Calling All Crows, the organization founded by Stokes and tour manager Sybil Gallagher that partners musicians and fans to create change through hands-on service and activism.
Since 2008, Calling All Crows (CAC) has teamed up with internationally renowned organizations to draw attention to a variety of causes – Habitat For Humanity, Matthew Shepherd Foundation, Humane Society, Jersey Cares, Clean Ocean Action, and more. CAC and has also joined with Amnesty International for "Teach In: On Women's Human Rights," an effort to address violence against women globally (including a sold-out show at The Kennedy Center) and joined with Oxfam America to organize home run derbies and 5K road races. Overall, CAC raised over $250,000 to empower women in Sudan and Afghanistan. CAC has invested more than 20,000 hours of service in local communities across North America and Europe.
Each person that attends the intimate living room concert will get their name in the liner notes of the upcoming album, as well as an autographed CD when it is completed in 2014. There will also be a special patron-only website where attendees and supporters can listen to album demos, ask Stokes questions about the album and watch a live webcast concert from his living room on October 22nd.
In a letter to fans, Stokes humbly writes, "this fall is around the corner and we are making preparations for my first living room tour. My career has always been built on the shoulders of you all; whether it be peer to peer, word of mouth sharing of the music or the effort you've made to come see shows - sometimes traveling for hours and hours on end. Over the years I've been able to string along a career that I never could've imagined when I first stole my sister’s guitar and I feel so lucky to be able to do it full-time. So, I'm getting new tires put on the van and I got about 15 new songs ruffed out: some are too long, some are too short, and some are too literal. I'll be playing a few new ones each night to test them out. And so I thank you again in this letter, and will do so again in someone's living room, for enabling my fascination and dependency on words and music and for holding up our life out on the road."
