Harbourfront Soundclash Awards, New album, Song of the Week


So if you didn’t already hear, I’ve been nominated  for the Harbourfront Soundclash Awards alongside LAL, Opopo, Rich Kidd, Gyles, and Progress and the Rebel Alliance.  Pretty honoured to be nominated and get to share the stage with these awesome artists. Harbourfront interviewed each of us and we were told to brag as much as we wanted but thats not really my style.  My show is this Saturday at 3pm at Redpath Stage, Harbourfront.

Here’s my spiel:

As well, CBC Here and Now chose one artist to promote the Award and they chose me!! Woo hoo.  My song “Business” is the  song of the week played somewhere between 2 and 6pm everyday on CBC radio 1.  By the way, “Business” is yet unreleased so this is a sneak preview of the upcoming album entitled Break the Balance.

I am releasing my full length album, Break the Balance  here in Canada this September, Germany, Switzerland and Italy in October and November and January in the States.  Here is a little behind the scenes video of the photoshoot for the album cover, shot by Carrie Clee of Clee Images.

Last weekend I was in Ottawa after being nominated for the “Shes the One” award as part of the Ottawa Blues Fest.  What a wonderful experience!  Pretty cool to have played the same festival as Snoop Dog and Alice Cooper!

By the way, my band is the shit!!!

Thats all folks!



Shangri La, Cabaret and a Music Video!


Just back from Kentucky where Sam and I spent one solid week doing pre production at Shangri la Studio’s with producer Duane Lundy and Justin Craig. What a bubble of musical insanity and freakishly good vibes.  Vague eh?

Well you’ll just have to keep posted on the album’s progress!

In my spare time, I created this video for Progression from Little Green Bud while in Lexington.

Douglas and Aly met up with us in Lexington after a week on the road doing their solo and duo shows.  We all had a big snuggle and hit the road, driving 12 hours straight to Toronto where we arrived last night at about 2am.  Everyone crashed on the nearest surface in our downtown abode and rolled out slowly today to be dressed for a night of cabaret by Fashion Crimes Toronto.

What for?

HELLO!!! It’s our Album Release on SATURDAY at THE RIVOLI!!!! 8:30pm

With Sacred Balance and Tropicallia!!!


Don’t forget!

Love and insanity
