WHAT IS TWO ON TOUR?

Two seemingly disparate music artists, whom one may not put together in a performance setting, bringing their contrasting approach to song-craft to the forefront and breaking the myth of what Black Music looks and sounds like AND how Black Women amplify its genius.

GENESIS

"The IDEA of Two On Tour came about in an organic and cosmic manner, beginning in 2008 when Shena and I first met. It was my first festival out of my  home town of Los Angeles, and although I had met Shena a few months before in LA, this would be my first time seeing her play music and really getting an idea of what SHE was about as an artist. I was completely blown away. Her lyricism, accompanied with her bad-ass stage persona; black girl magic personified. I had not focused on playing guitar for a long while, only relying on vocalizing and I saw, while watching her, that I could actually sing my songs and play my guitar! So I was inspired to do something I thought I could not do. And her WORD-SMITHING was impeccable. I wanted her to write for me and I was kinda embarrassed to ask. I think the feeling was mutual., Then and there, in 2008, we decided that somehow we would play and sing together."
