Singer/Producer/Genius Ryan Leslie is putting together an intimate tour, and took to his Facebook to get fans, and musicians who wanted to get involved, read below if you’re a musician in the NEW YORK area, or are willing to travel.

For this tour, I am starting over from scratch. I have never toured the United States before. These are not big corporate shows with big corporate money. These are shows funded by fans. Though I may have a bunch of twitter followers and facebook likes, what I know for sure is that I am playing small shows. In the United States, the promoters of my shows are not paying for flights. They are not paying for hotels. I decided that I am still going to reach into my pocket and pay all of the travel expenses myself so that I can bring a LIVE BAND experience to every fan, from the new to the tried and true. I am holding auditions for players that want to take this journey with me.

To be considered, you must be either a guitar, bass, drummer, or keyboard player and do the following:

1. Record a video (mobile phone videos are fine) of yourself playing along to one or all of the following three songs: “Glory”, “How It Was Supposed To Be”, and/or “Something That I Like”

2. Submit your video to: ryanleslieaudition@gmail.com

3. Wait for a response with information for a LIVE audition to be held in NYC within 24 hours

THIS OPPORTUNITY IS ONLY AVAILABLE TO NYC-BASED MUSICIANS who can rehearse 3x per week in the month of August and commit to the ‘LES IS MORE’ tour for the months of September, October & November 2012.
