I’ve still never really been on vacation. All that planning and travelling and suitcase-packing always seems pretty close to what I’m doing day to day. And while I spent an unusual number of weeks at home in Toronto this summer, they were spent hard at work planning the fall CD release tour.

I’ve got a couple of sweet shows in Ontario (Desboro and Minden) in the next couple of weeks, before I head out to the northeast USA, midwest USA, and Vancouver Island for much of the fall. Then back to Ontario in November for a string of “homecoming” CD release concerts. I’m really excited to get back on the road and even more excited to have a piping hot stack of new Forest Fire CDs to bring along!

Find out if I’m playing near you. Or contact me if you’d like to help make a concert near you happen!

Thanks to all the radio hosts who have been spinning the new single, Never Enough. I am honoured to be part of the great wealth of music you share so selflessly.

And many thanks to The Foundation Assisting Canadian Talent on Recordings (FACTOR) for the recent Artist Development grant that’s helping with some of my marketing and publicity costs.

As the Forest Fire release date of September 1 quickly approaches, enjoy the first single from the album – Never Enough is streaming now online and playing soon on the radio airwaves!

Tune in to Concert Window tonight!

June 16, 2017

I’ve been driving back and forth across the northeast states as the light lingers longer each day. Last night I cheered on WICN‘s funding drive with a guest performance on Nick Noble‘s Folk Revival show. The night before, I paddled a canoe under the clearest constellations. Tonight, I head to Morristown, New Jersey to perform […]

An update on Forest Fire

May 30, 2017

The CDs have arrived. They are shiny and three-dimensional and there are hundreds of them. And as much as I want to drop them all from the sky and into your hands (possibly while yelling “It’s finally done!!! AAAAAAAA!”), I’m keeping them in their little boxes for the moment. You see, the CD now has […]

This new album is getting SO CLOSE! Take a peek at the album cover, featuring my paintings and Amy Campbell‘s design, as well as the track listing and lyrics on the Forest Fire page.
