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!

Laying low, staying local

For the next few months, I’ll be laying low and focusing on writing the next album (seven eight songs in already). It’s been a fantastic year! Highlights include showcasing at Folk Alliance International in Kansas City, touring The Netherlands, performing Rogue Folk Club as a trio with John Ellis and Rob Becker, travelling VIA Rail as their “artist on board,” and playing a special guest spot at Calgary Folk Club. If you’ve come out to a show, purchased my music, paid me a compliment (clapping counts), or told someone about my music – THANK YOU! Check shows page for any local gigs coming up.
