I travel a lot. When I’m home and I see friends, I always hear, “You’re back!”. I love seeing new places, I always have, but seeing them because I get to play a show? Way, way, way, exciting. One thing I’ve learned though…instruments are heavy, which means unless I want to feel like a sherpa, I have to condense and lose the non-essentials.
Two things I need for every show
- Guitar – obviously.
In my carry-on I try and keep it light because toting a guitar around is heavy enough. But I still work from my computer all the time and what if inspiration strikes?! So this is my list of chic musician carry on essentials. Water bottle not pictured.
- ear plugs
- chapstick and lipgloss
- solar charger
Travel outfits are always tricky, but I try to bring as many versatile pieces as I can. Things that can go from plane to meeting, or from plane to night out.
Here are just a few things I feel are great that can be worn a couple time and still look good.
- black denim
- modal t shirt
- denim shorts
- chambray shirt
- street sneakers
- wedge heels
