I'm excited to let you know about a show I'm doing with kith&kin (aka my family) in a couple of weeks. The show is happening at St. Andrew-by-the-Lake church on Toronto Island. This church is very spceial to us because it's where we started singing together as a trio in our community, and also because it's where we recorded our two albums. We'll be joined by our fantastic choir Isla Criag, Max Milton Kelly, Frank Griggs, Gabe Levine, and D. Alex Meeks. We'll perform songs as a trio, with the choir, and the choir members will lead some of their own songs as well. Oh and it's happening on MOTHER'S DAY! Music starts at 4pm, so come and ramble on the Island beforehand. All details are on facebook here. We'll be singing songs from our recently released album Cool of the Day, which you can listen to below…

It's finally Spring in Toronto! I wanted to share a video with all of you. This is a trailer for a new web series called FLUSH, which is created by my friends Maisie Jacobson and Natasha Greenblatt. They have been working really hard on it and created the trailer as part of an application to get more funding to finish the series. Please take a second to watch the trailer if you can – the more views they get, the more likely they are to get funding! And they used parts of a new song that I recorded with my best bud Matthew Bailey as the background music! This is the first taste of a bunch of new music I've been working on over the past few months!
I've also got a couple of fun shows coming up in the next few weeks. On Sunday April 13th I'll be singing with Isla Craig and Tamara Lindeman as a trio-version of our all-lady a capella group Soul Sisters Supreme Redux V 2.0. We'll be performing a breakfast show at the wonderful Kazoo! Fest in Guelph Ontario, at Innovation Guelph. More info on that show is here – admission includes coffee and pancake breakfast!
And then on Saturday April 19th I'll be doing a short set with my family trio kith&kin at One Sweet Day, a great event put on by Sierra Club Canada in Toronto's Sorauren Park to celebrate honey bees and beekeepers! You can get more info on facebook here.
