Happy official days of summer! I’m spending mine mostly in my home province of Ontario, with a few cool, breezy gigs, and a lot of new album planning.

If you’ve been curious about how I’ve been doing on tour in the USA, check out these great videos captured by Wayne Ebinger at the Isis Music Hall in Asheville, NC in May.

Turn back time

June 1, 2016

As I’m looking ahead to my northeast US tour this month, you can look back at some pre-recorded radio and video broadcasts that are now online.

Want to watch AND listen to some stories and songs? Tune in to Nashville Side Streets on Saturday, June 4 at 8:30pm CST for my pre-taped appearance and conversation with Ronnie Dean. You can tweet or email during the broadcast to ask questions or comment on the show.

March 27, 2016

I’m back from BC, and when I close my eyes, I can still see the mirrored surface of Upper Arrow Lake. I  smell pine trees when I wake up. When things are hazy, I remember the fog in the mountains. Thanks to the sweet audiences and hosts. It was a pleasure to meet you all. […]
