Last summer my sister Martha and I got to flex our hula-hooping muscles while filming the new video for Snowblink's Inner Mini-Mississippi. Snowblink are good friends of mine from the Toronto music community, and their latest record, Inner Classics is amazing! You can stream the whole thing on Brooklyn Vegan here. (BV even calls Martha and I "world class" hula hoopers!) Oh and speaking of friends, the video was directed by Neil Haverty, one of my bandmates from Bruce Peninsula. Bigups to Snowblink for the beautiful song, Neil for the gorgeous video, and to all three of them for having Martha and I dance in their video! Lucky us !

We had an amazing show on Friday night with Andy Maize and friends at Hugh's Room – what a special place to play. I love it more and more each time! If some photos from the night resurface, I'll be sure to put them up!
This first week of March is, for me, dominated by one person – my guitarist and best bud Matthew Bailey! I'm playing shows with him every other day this week! Matt put out his debut album, Tendrils (see the beautiful artwork by Raven Julia Shields below), earlier this year, and I was lucky enough to be one of the many great singers featured on the record. Matt is playing two shows this week, and I'll be singing backup. You can see us play…
– On Monday March 4th at the Common on College (hosted by that same Raven Shields – if you've never been to her music nights at the Common, you must go!). This show is with our friend Sean Donald.
And then this Friday March 8th, Matt and I will be playing as a duo at the Holy Oak. We've been invited by our good friend Max Kelly to share in his monthly residency there. We're going to play our own songs, as well as lots of covers and some of our old favourites that have fallen off our setlists over the years. You can get all the info here!
And finally, you can check out Matt's song Until You Arrived on the latest installment of Tim Sweeney's podcast Rock the Shack here. It's a duet!
It's gonna be a good week!
