After the maritimes 2022 tour newsletter

Dear listeners,

The RiseUP 2022 Maritimes tour is at an end. I am sitting in the airport in Fredericton, NB waiting to board the plane home. The excitement from the tour is still with me, as tired as we all are, I know that we would head out tomorrow and tour again right away if given the opportunity.

I have been so blessed to be included in the company of so many talented musicians. Being surrounded by so much talent is a wonderful feeling, to know I can contact any of these musicians needing a place to stay they would help with no hesitation; as long as we get to jam. It is amazing how much you improve as a person and also as a musician when spending so much time on the road together.

As a musician I am so fortunate. I have a family at home and on the road that support is so very important. To the fans who were at the shows I want to say thank you!! Without you there can be no us. Your love and support has not gone unnoticed and we appreciate it so so much.

For those of you who want to see the shows but were unable to make the them please go to the RiseUP TV Facebook page and check us out!!

The RiseUP reality TV show will be on most platforms before the end of the year so stay tuned!!

We are slowly moving away from N1M but as always you can find us on YouTube, SoundCloud, Spotify, Apple Music, Deezer and so many other platforms. Please visit link for all the latest updates and please join out email list on the site for all the latest news.

Watch out for us locally this summer, coming to a stage near you and follow us as we get ready for the UK/France/Germany tour in October.

Yours in sound,
DustyMarcus
