Bergy Bits

June 12, 2018

Every once in the while, the road gives me one of those awesome firsts – like the first time I saw the Rocky Mountains, or Lake Superior off of Highway 17, or the Badlands in Alberta. I’m still waiting for my first Northern Lights sighting, although I did get to see a moose close up on the side of the TransCanada Highway last week.

But besides moose, Newfoundland gave me another unexpected first on this recent tour – ICEBERGS! Nature’s art installations. Spectacular sights.

I’m heading south to play some summery gigs in the northeast USA – Fairfax, VA, Montclair, NJ, and Dover, DE this week, as well as some radio spots. Keep your ears open – I’ll keep my eyes open!

May 23, 2018

May is Bike Month where I live and I’ve been enjoying the precious weather sliver between “sweating under too many winter layers” and “sweating under the hot Toronto summer sun”. It’s perfect biking weather – and I’m home for a couple of weeks to enjoy it!

If, like me, you’ve been riding through the winter and your bike is a bit banged up, or if you just took it out of hibernation for the season and it’s rusty and rattled, don’t underestimate the transformative power of a good bike mechanic! Just don’t forget to share some love with them. Maybe sing them this song:

My Baby Can Fix a Bike is the bonus download from my most recent album Forest Fire. If you bought a CD copy, the download link is on the inside cover. The single track can also be purchased here.

Carolina state of mind

Biscuits, hush puppies and strawberries in May. I’m heading down to North Carolina for the first time in two years. Looking forward to playing in Asheville, Wilmington, and Greensboro. May I be reminded of the roll of the mountains, the sound of waterfalls, the sight of the colour green. Let’s meet in the BBQ queue. […]

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. […]

South, West, East

March 9, 2018

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 […]
