two shows

Friday, March 24th, 2017

I’m deep in writing mode right now, preparing to record a new EP in the coming months, but I am emerging to play a couple of shows in the next two weeks.

On April 1st I’ll make my second appearance at AMAZING NEW STUFF – a reading and music series that always brings together an interesting mix of artists. The series is intimate and unamplified – to find out the location (which is in the West End of Toronto) you have to buy tickets! I’ll be playing solo. Tickets and info are here.

And on April 5th, I’m excited to join my Latent Recordings family for the Latent Lounge series at the Monarch Tavern. Matthew Bailey and I will be playing a mix of new and old songs as a duo. My Latent-mate Jerry Leger will be releasing his new record that evening as well. And I’m excited to be singing one of the songs from Cowboy Junkies’ beautiful record the Trinity Session, which a group of Latent artists will be covering in its entirety that evening. It should be a great night! More info and tickets are here.

darling dear dear darling

Monday, March 9th, 2015

I have a couple of things to share! 

First – I recorded a version of the beautiful Mary Margaret O'Hara song Dear Darling last year, and it's now available as a free download via the Latent Recordings Under Cover series. Follow the prompts on this link to get it! If you don't know Mary Margaret's music, you should check it out – she is a rare treasure. My version of Dear Darling also features some pretty playing by Matthew Bailey and Noah Reid – thanks you two! 

Second – my darling dear friend Tamara Lindeman (aka the Weather Station) is going to put out her much-anticipated new album Loyalty in May. It is so beautiful! The folks at Stereogum previewed one of the tracks recently and you must hear it! I've posted the track below, you can read the Stereogum feature here

AND FINALLY – one nice note: The Calling  (the drum n bass song that I made with my friend Rene LaVice) has been in steady heavy rotation on BBC Radio in the UK as part of their A List! We are blessed to be occupying space on the list next to Kanye, Rihanna, and Paul McCartney !!  If you haven't heard the song you can listen on youtube here
