The East Pointers Tour!

I remember telling ye’all about my new project ‘The East Pointers’ a few months back… It’s a traditional celtic band that I started with Koady Chaisson (who a lot of you know as my long haired banjo + bass player on the road) and Jake Charron, a really great friend of ours from Ontario.
We’ve been talking about it for a while and finally this past summer we released an EP – it’s been doing great! I have about 2 weeks off from my singer-songwriter touring duties so we’re doing an East Pointers tour (can’t get enough of the road, I guess! Haha).

CCMA’s + My Birthday = Tired.

Thanks to the CCMA’s for all the wicked shows this weekend. I’m tired. And it’s snowing here in Edmonton? Wha? PEI, here I come.
Oh yeas, this is me singing a John Hartford song at the Gibson All Star Show on my birthday. Good times.

East Coast Tour!

So, Music PEI put together an Artist Exchange program where a UK artist comes to the east coast to tour with me and then I go there (a pretty sweet little deal, I think). Kizzy Crawford and I will also collaborate on songwriting together which I’m really looking forward to. It all starts really soon, so check the dates and come on out!

Producing My First Record!

Well, I’m proud to say I finished my first producing gig and I friggin’ loved it. These girls (Amy & Rachel Beck – check ‘em out) made my job pretty easy though – along with Sheppy, the engineer. Very talented gals with some real nice songs. It will be released this fall so keep yer ears and eyes open for it!

Hanging w/ Gordon Lightfoot!

Well, halfway through my first song at the Gordon Lightfoot Songbook Stage here at Mariposa Folk Festival this is the fella I see staring back at the stage. I mader through and he actually complimented me on my version of ‘For Lovin’ Me’.
And then he got up and sang right beside me, a career highlight for sure : ) And a nice fella too!

Makin’ A Record!

Well, I sure can’t believe it but I guess when you buckle down and spend 14 hours a day in the studio out in the country then you come out with something!
Something that I’m pretty friggin’ proud of… A RECORD!
I teamed up with Band of Horses, Bill Reynolds to pop out 12 of my best written songs over the last 2 years and I can’t wait for you to hear them. It’s not mixed yet but I’ll be sure to let you know when that’s done (or maybe you might just hear something on the radio!).
Bill also took this pic too, talented feller.
Cheers for now folks!
