Laurie Lehner (from New York), Scott McLaughlin (from California) and Charlie Barker (from West Virginia) are three different solo artists whose paths crossed when each began gaining new listeners from the same Dave Matthews Band fan community on Twitter.
The three singer-songwriters will meet in person for the first time when they tour the East Coast to play their original songs, multi-genre covers and collaborations together.
A tweet of support from their champion, violinist Boyd Tinsley of Dave Matthews Band inspired a name for the tour – #LoveAndHastags.
The group recently launched a crowd-funding campaign where band-inspired crafts are offered by the Twitter community’s artistic DMB followers for donation prizes.
The trio ends their tour with a show at GlobeHopper Coffee on April 24.
