Here is the album cover of Give and Grow! It was designed by Nick Counter, an immensely talented Toronto artist.


New tracks from Give and Grow!

I’ve been MIA for the last month on the internet because of all the prep work I’ve been doing to launch my debut album, Give and Grow. I’m excited to let you know that two tracks are now posted on Soundcloud and CBC Music! Go take a listen:

There are lots of other exciting things that I will be revealing in the next couple of weeks, like album artwork (designed by Nick Counter), Toronto CD release details, a music video and a few other things I’ve been working on. In the meantime, go enjoy those new tracks! Share them, blast them, do what you need to do.

Roots and shoots

Lots of great news happening around here. First of all, the album is DONE! I can’t believe it’s been close to a year in the making, but I will be pressing CDs this week. It sounds amazing and the artwork is just gorgeous. I’m so proud of it and thankful for everyone who went above and beyond to make this a really great record. We’ll be releasing a single soon, so keep those ears to the ground.

Secondly, I’ll be shooting my very first music video today with the band and some good friends at Major Street Productions who have offered to help me out. I need to start googling synonyms for ‘excited’ because that seems to be the only thing I’m feeling these days. Not too sure when the release date will be, but I’m so glad it’s not going to rain today because we’re going to be outside all day.

AND finally, Robb and I recorded a couple videos last week and I’ve uploaded them to my YouTube channel (one is posted below). Our duo set is shaping up quite nicely and if you’d like to come hear us, we’ll be playing at the Tranzac on Wed. July 7 at 7:30 as part of my monthly residency there. Caylie Staples, a long time friend and musical partner, will be playing some of her ethereal compositions and will even sit in on a few tunes of mine.

One week to go

With less than a week to go, I’m starting to gear up for this upcoming gig at the Horseshoe. To help promote the show (and talk to some great people who love music), I’ll be doing a short interview on Friday at around 6:30 with INtune Radio. Check it out here.

If you haven’t seen it yet, feast your eyes on this poster Nick Counter made for me. It reminds me of a Polyphemus moth. I’ve been postering a lot in the last few weeks, in spite of the kooky weather we’ve been having. Damn you snow!
