Three Song Stories

April 15, 2019

While I was in Florida, I stopped by the studio at WGCU to tape an episode of the Three Song Stories podcast. You can listen to it here.

Secrets revealed: What my favourite song was when I was a kid, how I love slowdancing, what TV theme song I might belt out when provoked, the first album I bought with my own money, a live performance of a brand new song that I wrote at the Banff Centre, and more!

In other news, I’ve been painting. And I’ll have some for sale at my shows in the US Northeast later this month.

Surf’s up!

I’ve been so focused on the work I was doing up at the Banff Centre that I forgot to mention – I’m in Florida now!

Banff was an incredible experience. I met and worked with stellar songwriters and humans in world-class facilities surrounded by spectacular scenery.

I have some new songs to share.

I played a great show at the ACMA Listening Room in Fort Myers and recorded two radio show bits for NPR in Fort Myers and Miami. Two more shows are coming up in South Florida: April 4 at the Penny Lane Music Emporium in Fort Lauderdale and April 5 at the Broward Folk Club in Sunrise. This tour’s been all sunsets, sunglasses, and sandals so far.

It sounded like a utopia of creativity and collaboration and peace and inspiration. A place I could only dream about. Three years ago, while on tour in […]

Driving down to upstate

February 19, 2019

Freezing rain, gale force winds, and snow storms – my British Columbia tour had it all. I’d never seen Vancouver’s firs and cedars covered in white. I managed to move through the necessary international airports, with only some delays, slipping in and out right between the worst of the weather. After five days in a […]

Snow storms and surprises

January 27, 2019

Touring in January can be a gamble. That’s why it was especially heartwarming to see so many full rooms on my recent dates in the Northeast USA. It was a real treat to sing some harmonies with Jesse Terry at the first show of 2019 in Teaneck, NJ at Ethical Brew. My show in Bethesda, […]

I’m delighted to announce that my song Not So Silent was selected for the Silver Award in the “Folk Acoustic” category of the Mid-Atlantic Song Contest, presented by the Songwriters’ Association of Washington. And I’m even more delighted that I get to play the song live at the gala awards event in Washington, DC on […]
