Thanks so much to everyone who came out to the Cameron House last week to celebrate the release of NO TALKER. What an amazing time! Thanks especially to my amazing band for the evening – Lucas Gadke, Mike Brushey, and Aaron Comeau – you are the greatest! And of course I have to thank J Kutchma and the Five Fifths, and Joshua Cockerill for joining us as well. What a night!
Here’s a sweet little review of No Talker in Exclaim: http://exclaim.ca/Reviews/FolkAndCountry/ivy_mairi-no_talker
I’m so excited to announce that my next show will be at the Island Cafe on July 13th. The Cafe – which is on Ward’s Island, where I grew up – is one of my favourite places ever! I book a summer music series there, which you can learn more about here.
Early last week, I stopped by the Fish Eye headquarters in Kensington Market to shoot a video on their back porch. Thanks guys!

A few things to share!
I’m excited to be playing some songs at the Summerworks Festival launch party, this Saturday at Mercer Union Gallery. My good friends Marine Dreams will also be playing a set later in the evening! Every year, the Summerworks Festival – which mainly focuses on theatre – programs some of the best Toronto concerts of the summer. I was lucky enough to perform at last year’s fest with Bruce Peninsula. Come to the party, and be the first to hear this summer’s music lineup! The event is happening at Mercer Union (1286 Bloor Street West, at Lansdowne), starts at 8pm, and I play at 9:30, Marine Dreams at 11.
My album NO TALKER has been getting some nice attention in anticipation of the big release party on June 21st at the Cameron House.
Check out Berkeley Place’s nice words here.
Baby Sue’s review is here.
In other news, I also now have three songs tabbed on the internet! The labour of a kind stranger means that you can more easily learn my songs! Here’s the latest tab that came to my attention yesterday – for Passing Cars.
My good friends over at the Broken Speaker shot some nice footage of my performance last month at the King’s College Library in Halifax. Check out these videos of myself, and EONS (Matt Cully of Bruce Peninsula), who I was lucky enough to sing back-up for on our mini-tour!
