Wow! What a weekend!
As I sit down to write this post, I am picturing everything that came to fruition over the last 72 hours. My hear is filled with joy, my mind is at ease, and my voice has opened up like it has never before. This past weekend I was dedicated entirely to my music. This was the first time in my musical life that I have felt completely and fully immersed in my my music, my story, and my song.
Over the last three days, I spent my time in a beautiful quaint and peaceful two story cabin located in Caledon, ON. I had the opportunity of sharing the space with my sound engineer, Danen Sloan (a.k.a the wizard). What a pleasure he is to work with.
We recorded three of my most intimate songs, and had the space, time, and freedom to create and fully immerse ourselves in the music. I am grateful to have been in a peaceful space, surrounded by the most beautiful and kind musicians and my Band of Dreams Susannah McKenzie-Sutter, Matthew Wittmann, Jordan MacKinnon, and the amazing film crew who captured all of the musical magic.
I have some really excited things coming, and I can’t wait to share it with you all x
I am so excited to share with all my fans, friends, and music supports that I am touring out west this August, partnering with Via Rail and their Artist’s On Board Program. As an acoustic artist, finding and playing gigs that support you are sometimes hard to find, and I am so happy to have this opportunity to tour the country and share my music through Via Rail. I will be taking the train from Toronto and ending in Vancouver, stopping off and performing in Winnipeg, Jasper, and Vancouver. I will also be stopping by Vancouver and Victoria radio stations, including CiTR and CFVU stations.
Just me and my guitar, I am thrilled to be supported to share my own music across this beautiful country!
Stay connected with me for more updates, content, and photos along the way! X
2016 has been a busy and exciting year for me and my music. I have been actively involved with touring with Silver Creek Folk and recording a new ep with the band, while also recording my third acoustic EP set for release this fall. In celebration of my 25th birthday, I would like to share with all of you a bit of the recording that I have been working on. For those of you who have seen me play live, or if you caught me playing around the beautiful grounds of Kalani, you will know this song! This is a work in progress, but I would finally like to share something with you all that I have been working on. So here it is, my new song Mirage (formerly, where heaven meets the earth) which will be featured on my brand new EP this year. Let me know what you think! X
Last night I had the wonderful opportunity to take part in Dave Bookman’s (Indie88) Nu Music Night at Toronto’s legendary Horseshoe Tavern. Being surrounded by my amazing fans, friends, and family along with exceptional sound, this event was definitely the highlight of my 2015 year!
Thank you so much to everyone for joining me on this evening, and I am happy to announce that the Horseshoe wants me back again for a date in 2016!
Everyone asks me how they can support me and my music!
I am happy to announce that I am a part of CBC Music’s Searchlight contest for new and emerging Canadian artists.
