In this Dream Tour segment, the singer-songwriter, Lisa Heller, reveals who she would want on her ultimate tour lineup. You can check out their picks, after the break.
There are so many bands and artists I would be honored to tour with. When I was little, I grew up listening to The Fray, Dave Matthews, and Coldplay, so those are a few artists I dreamed of going on tour with growing up. Their songs were so centered on lyrical significance and passion, something I love to find in music.
When I was 12 or so, my family was on a little ski trip in Vermont and O.A.R. super randomly had a free concert at the ski mountain. When they finished their set, my little brother ended up meeting a band member in the bathroom and returned from the bathroom walking the whole band over to my family. I remember them telling me to never give up music, and stay in school, which is something I will never forget. Since then, I wanted to open for O.A.R. and have been super excited to tour someday.
When I was in my early teens and started writing music, I fell in love with the music by singer-songwriters like Christina Perri and Sara Bareilles who I would also love to tour with. These women powerhouses really inspired me to write music and it would be so incredible to tour with them.
As I’ve found my sound and music that I really love, I have found some artists in the same realm that would be a dream to tour with. Sasha Sloan is a big inspiration of mine, as she writes so candidly and openly. I hung out with Chelsea Cutler last year on her tour stop in Nashville and I just know it would be so fun to go on tour with her. She even brings her dog on tour, and like me is from CT! I also would love to tour with Dean Lewis as I think he is super talented. Fletcher is pretty amazing, it would be so cool to do a show together. Maisie Peters’ music is starting to really take off as well, and I’d love to play on the same bill as her someday. Lewis Capaldi is SO talented as well, and I can just tell that he is hilarious. THAT would be a fun tour.
I’ve been dreaming of touring since I was a little girl, and it would be an honor to share the stage with any of these amazing artists :).
