Holiday Update

Well the year has come and gone with a flurry of insane events.  TRUMP!  what?

Leonard Cohen, David Bowie, Prince, Sharon Jones… and the list continues.  Its been a tough year on the whole.  So much loss and so much terrifying change.  But, alas there is also some good coming.

2016 also had lots of great music.  For me, I got to make a record and play with Lori Cullen, Donovan Woods, Matthew and Jill Barber with the family album band, Royal Wood, Atlas Revolt and more.  I made a bunch of records, did some cool DoubleTooth shows in a park as part of Dusk Dances (a dance festival), and wrote a lot of music.  Here is the latest…

On the slightly sinister side of things I’m excited to announce that I was a contributor on the latest film installment by the great Mitch Fillion of Southern Souls.  Its a Doc about the conspiracy theory surrounding Paul McCartney’s supposed death in 1966.  He asked a bunch of Canadian musicians to contribute Beatles covers for the film.  You read more about it here.

On the less sinister side of things, I am currently on the Road with the Good Lovelies celebrating there 10 year anniversary with their annual Christmas Tour.  Click here for details on upcoming show dates and locations near you.

I am also very excited to announce that this January I will be heading to the Extraordinary Banff centre for the Arts for a musicians residency!  This has been something I have been wanting to down for many many years now.  I am thrilled and honored to have been given this opportunity.  I will be spending 2 and a half weeks there composing new music for piano and synthesizers.  More to come on that project as it evolves.

Finally, I am going back into the studio with the wonderful and talented Lydia Persaud to complete recordings for her EP.  Keep your eye out for her.  She is a powerhouse of talent that you wont want to miss.

Lots to come over the New Year…  On deck I will be touring in the new year with Donovan Woods, Jill Barber, Royal Wood, and the Good Lovelies.  Also, stay tuned for some new releases under my own name, a live show in New York on Feb 10th with Cantor Mo Glazman, and me moving into a newer bigger studio space!!!

Happy Holidays everyone!  stay warm and safe.
