The Philadelphia-based roots rocker launches an open-ended tour next month in which he hopes to change the world for the better. To accomplish this, Malone and his band The Experts are performing free concerts in conjunction with local and national charities in an attempt to tap the inner self-empowerment in fans and direct it towards helping those less fortunate.

“We can change the world one person at a time,” Malone said in a statement, “through music, compassion and understanding.”

Partnering with local radio stations along the way, JD Malone & The Experts launch the “Do What You Can Do” U.S. tour (named after a song from his Avalon album) in Nashville at Third & Lindsley Oct. 13. Other stops include Nashville’s Douglas Corner Oct. 14; Knoxville, Tenn., at a WFIV presentation Oct. 15; Phoenixville, Pa., at Steel City Nov. 5; Philadelphia’s Tin Angel Nov. 23; and Doylestown, Pa., at Puck Live Dec. 3.

But the tour doesn’t stop in Doylestown. As you read this, JD Malone & The Experts are scheduling shows for Tampa, Fla.; Dallas; Framingham, Mo., and maybe even your town.

Of course, an outing like this isn’t cheap. To help defray costs, Malone and his band are soliciting contributions through the website as well as through creative project fundraiser site
