What a trip!

April 17, 2018

Spring touring in Canada meant snowstorms in Wells, BC, in Saint John, NB, in Dartmouth, NS, and now as I catch up at home in Toronto.

It was a whirlwind five week trip that began in Florida, followed by tours in British Columbia and the east coast, with a cross-country train ride in the middle. Thanks to everyone who hosted me and fed me, and the audiences who came out to the shows. Special thanks to VIA Rail for having me on The Canadian and The Ocean as the on board musician from Vancouver to Halifax. What a way to see the country!

I’ll be back on the road at the end of the month with shows in southwest Ontario and the midwest USA, followed by some dates in North Carolina in May. Hope to see you and some spring weather!

Touring in Florida in March has been one of the smarter routing decisions that I’ve made in my music career, and I’m looking forward to returning to the southern state this month. I’ve got a week of shows in Florida before flying out to British Columbia and then taking the train across Canada all the way to Halifax.

I’ll be playing music on the train courtesy of VIA Rail’s On Board Entertainment Program. There’s no better way to watch spring start to bloom than at ground level.

Full tour details are on the GIGS page – hope to see you on the road!

And connecting. And constructing. Although I’ll admit I do miss the hurry and fury of the road. I head out on tour again […]

How the stems rose from the ashes

January 1, 2018

Happy new year! If this is a time of rebirth for you, of resetting, of reflecting, of turning over, here’s a song to roll you through: I hope to make more music with such excellent players as these in 2018.

Slow down

December 13, 2017

It’s been snowing in Toronto for two days and the temperature is dropping. It’s time to slow down those highway speeds, slow down those molecules. I’m writing more and travelling less at this time of year. In the spirit of slowness, here’s a laid-back, solo acoustic version of Love in a Moving Van, recorded live […]
