Live Different has two teams touring full-time across the country, speaking in as many as three hundred schools a year, to thousands of students from St. John’s, Newfoundland to Victoria, British Columbia. The purpose of these presentations is to spread the message that every life has value, and that there is hope in the midst of all circumstances.
Along with music from live bands, the Live Different presentation is a fast-paced, engaging experience that includes professional speakers, multi-media, and crowd interaction.
In order to be considered for this opportunity, artists must have:
A positive, hard-working attitude
Ability to interact enthusiastically and professionally with a young audience/fan base
A professional online presence (Website/Facebook/Bandcamp)
Lyrical content that does not contradict Live Different’s message
While on tour, bands will be considered representatives of Live Different and will be expected to speak and behave in ways that reflect the values of the organization.
Bands must also participate fully in the duties shared between all members of the tour, including set up and tear down of gear each day, interacting with students, manning merchandise tables, and may even be given the opportunity to speak in a presentation, if interested.
It's not often that young bands find an opportunity to tour across the country, playing to tens of thousands of students in their demographic for free. But, touring with Live Different teaches you far more than just what it's like to do a tour. It teaches you the value of teamwork, how to interact with an audience, the harsh realities of early mornings/late nights, and why it's all totally worth it. And most of all, touring with Live Different becomes something bigger than the band itself or the other team members when you receive messages of how students were impacted by your music and how the whole presentation has changed their lives, setting them on a new, hopeful path. It's the perfect opportunity to touch people with your music.
