Do you have 3:07 to spare? Help my friend land a new job in 2011!

Back in March, right here in Austin, I made a new friend during SXSW. His name is Nate Davenport, and he’s a singer/songwriter from San Antonio.  He was booked to play the after-party for a barcamp event that I had attended, and our paths crossed a couple of times during that week.  We had lunch on the last day of the Interactive festival, and I saw him again once or twice after that.  Since then, we’ve maintained contact via Twitter.

After spending some time with Nate, I learned that he’s a good guy and a supremely talented independent musician.  I have little doubt that he will be successful in the music industry.

Nate let me know that he’s trying to land a very cool gig for 2011 with http://iwearyourshirt.com.  The basic concept is that anyone can purchase a day on the calendar, and, if he is chosen, Nate will be one of five people wearing “your shirt” that day.  January 1st cost $5, then $10 for January 2nd, adding $5 increments throughout the year.  I looked tonight, and they’re already booked through May and most of June!

Here’s how you can help:

1. Watch the video below.

2. There is not a second step.  It’s really that easy.  🙂

After you watch, check out Nate’s YouTube channel for some cool tunes and leave him a comment if you like what you hear.  He does a regular segment each week called “YouTubesdays”.  You might also want to grab a copy of Nate’s self-published CD (my wife and I each have one – it’s worth getting).  It’s available on Amazon for Mp3 download: http://www.amazon.com/Sweet-Disaster/dp/B001U44WTA/ref=tmm_other_title_0?ie=UTF8&qid=1289706011&sr=8-4

Thanks for helping my friend!
