Borealis signing

borealis logoThe new album is written, recording is underway, and I’ve just been signed to Toronto folk label Borealis Records. The new album is scheduled for release early 2017. Exclusively at live shows and via the *New Album Preorder* page, you can preorder a copy and thus help fund the project. In exchange, you’ll get a CD in the mail as soon as I receive the first batch, get it signed by all the musicians, and write you a personal thank you note. Also, you’ll be sent a link to download the album way in advance of its official release. Thanks for your support. 2017 is going to be a big year!
