YOUR CONTRIBUTION HELPS !

110% of all Donations go to straight into merchandise-making and essential tour funds. I am not seeking funding for my entire tour from fans and friends… I do what I must to keep it going (within reason - i.e. work side jobs, busk streets). But to note: this tour isn’t simply playing shows and ‘looking cool’. I am doing the entirety of booking, promo, merch-making, driving, cooking…7 am - 12 am everyday…and if it wasn’t work, it wouldn’t be worthwhile. If you enjoy what I do, like listening to my music and wish to support the cause of my poly-state locomotion, any contribution whatsoever is appreciated. The Narcissyphus Tour is a very long one, zigzagging all over the U.S. for nearly 15 months on 2 separate legs..spanning 30 states and then onto Europe in 2020. All proceeds go directly to merch-tweaking for optimal quality/value - Tapes, CD’s, Download Cards, T-shirts, Vinyl (this autumn) — Rerouted right back to the listener. I am so thankful for the privilege to play music, visit with you and see my country from every angle. We make that fused experience possible for one another. I’m not doing this for profit, as a modern-day entrepreneur wolf-cub does, shaking people down in the name of a carefree experience…and while I’m not ‘suffering’ either, any help would go a long way. I so appreciate your donation many times over, firstly with 1 (any amt) or 2 ($10+) free album downloads of your choice (via download code) and secondly a personalized video performance of a song you've requested ($15+), filmed on location wherever I happen to be located in the U.S. Upon donating what you can, email me your requested album or video song choice. Any amount will receive a timely return in these forms of gratitude from yours truly. Thank you all, it is a true pleasure to be playing music regularly. I will see you out there! - Tavo

New Lp NARCISSYPHUS

A nightmarish collection of beautiful orchestration and playful weirdness...His unique brand of lyrical poetry will catch you off guard and is at times laugh-out-loud funny -- His voice is striking, often sounding like a downtrodden Disney character from the 1930’s. The depths he’s discovered in these recordings (especially fun in over-ear headphones) are a perfect compliment to the Trump-era hellscape. - Jay Purdy, The Extraordinaires, Philadelphia PA

Neutronic: adj. (physics) Of or relating to a neutron or neutrons; consisting of neutrons. Specifically concerned with or employing neutrons in nuclear reactions

People are the true flowers of life, and it has been a most precious pleasure to have temporarily strolled in your garden - Lord Buckley

Suspicion always haunts the guilty mind - William Shakespeare

Stereotypes lose their power when the world is found to be more complex than the stereotype would suggest. When we learn that individuals do not fit the group stereotype, then it begins to fall apart - Ed Koch

Sweet it is, when on the high seas the winds are lashing the waters, to gaze from the land on another's struggles
- Lucretius

Majorities, of course, start with minorities
- Robert Moses

Colonialism: The policy of a polity seeking to extend or retain its authority over other people or territories, generally with the aim of developing or exploiting them to the benefit of the colonizing country and of helping the colonies modernize in terms defined by the colonizers, especially in economics , religion and health
