CD release and promo video

The new Timeline album is now officially out and can be purchased as a download or CD from BandCamp (preferred seller), iTunes, and other online stores. As well, this cool promo video has been posted on YouTube to coincide with the album’s release. Shot in one day at Overlynn Mansion in Burnaby, BC, the video features snippets of 4 songs from the new album. Thanks to Julie Dalkin of Driven by Gravity Productions for making the whole thing possible, and look out for Chris’ son and daughter making their movie debuts.

TWO songs in the semi-finals

Semi-Finalist_LoRes_RevisedI’ve just learned that two songs from the upcoming new album have made it through to the semi-finals of the International Songwriting Competition (ISC). With the CD release party happening March 6th at Vancouver’s ANZA Club, this really couldn’t have come at a better time. “The Mountaineer” is in the running in the Americana category and – wait for it – “The Sneeze” made it through in the Instrumental category. Both of these tunes will be performed live with the band on March 6th (please scroll down for details on how to get tickets to the show). I should find out in a couple of weeks if either of them progress to the finals. Neither of these songs are available to hear at the moment, but I’m posting a track a month on my VIP page and I’ll be featuring “The Mountaineer” in March. In the meantime, I’m offering a free download of the ringtone I made out of “The Sneeze.” Wish me luck!

This free download is for Android phones. To make it work for iPhone, download to your computer, change the file extension from .m4a to .m4r, add to iTunes library and sync. Alternatively, buy it direct from the iTunes store on your phone (easiest option).
