In support of his new EP, Ethan just hit the road this week with close friend and musical mentor/collaborator Michael Franti for a run of acoustic shows along the west coast. The two first met in Sun Valley, Idaho in 2009, when a teenage Tucker snuck backstage to meet the venerated Franti.  A few years later, and after playing him a recently written song, Michael invited Ethan to his San Francisco recording studio, where the two cut “Cool Kids” and “Crazy Tonight” for Tucker’s album as well as co-writing “Let It Go” which was featured in the film Spark: A Burning Man Story.
