So I just found out I’ve been nominated for 2 ECMA’s! I’m a happy dude. The East Pointers (my other life) is also nominated too – so I’m a double happy dude (does that make sense?). Anywho, I will be at ECMA’s in Sydney in April which will be my first entrance to Canada in 5 friggin’ months. I can’t wait!
Happy to have contributed to ‘A Special Island Christmas Compilation’ CD! It’s a great Christmas recording featuring a bunch of talented PEI artists. AND, it’s all for a good cause.
I had a blast recording this one – mostly because I got to hack away at all the instruments myself wink emoticon
You can purchase the recording right here… All proceeds go to Special Olympics PEI: http://bit.ly/21WwTxF
Pretty excited to share this video with ye’all! It features tons of PEI scenery, good peeps and my 1978 Dodge Fun Craft
I played ‘Crushed’ for BRBR back in May at a wonderful park in Toronto (I didn’t realize they were recording the first 45 seconds but that’s ok) ; )
Also, my best french is in action at the end.
Some pretty friggin’ good news! My 1st CCMA nomination. Wow. Pretty pumped right now. Roots Artist of the Year – such a great category. Some of my favourite Canadian Roots-Country acts are in here so I’m pretty tickled to be mentioned among them : )
And they’re in Halifax this year! Not far from little ol’ PEI. Yeehoo!
Check out this stripped down version of ‘Bad On Me’ I recorded w/ Mitch Fillion (Southern Souls) while on tour last month.
There was a raccoon listening in the bush beside me.
Well, that’s her! What a great friggin’ tour.
It’s also nice to finish it off at a nice sold out show at The Carleton, I love that venue.
I can’t thank you all enough for coming out, buying tickets to the shows, hanging out, having some great conversations and most of all taking the time to listen to my new record.
I’m off to the UK w/ my Celtic band, ‘The East Pointers’ for a few weeks and then it’s summer festival season! Looking forward to seeing you when the sun’s shining and perhaps I’ll have a n-ice cold beer in my hand ; )
Thanks to Kik.ca and Pierre for having me in while I was floating around the streets of Montreal before the show! O Patro Vys is a wonderful venue btw, great show.
This is a solo acoustic version of my song, Animal : )
