May 12th I host my annual concert to support Music Heals at The Rogue Folk Club. We will be collecting used Ipod’s/MP3 players for Music Therapists, and $1 from each ticket for the charity. It’s going to be a memorable night featuring Khari Wendell McClelland, Ian Sherwood from Halifax, Maria Dunn from Edmonton, and myself! Hope you’ll join us for this special evening! https://www.facebook.com/events/1714284565480987/

I’m very excited to tell you that I’ve beed added to the Cubby-Hole Artists roster, a new endeavor by the one and only Tom Landa (The Paperboys, Locarno). We’re working on booking some US and European dates this year - exciting times ahead!
I’m home after an incredible couple weeks away. I spent one week in Austin TX at The House of Songs. Myself and songwriter’s from Swedan, Denmark, Wales, and the US lived in a house together and co-wrote some new and beautiful songs! We also saw some of the sights of Austin which included many real life cowboys. We journeyed through Oklahoma to Kansas City for the second week, showcasing at Folk Alliance International. It was great to see old friends, and make some new ones. I have some new shows to announce shortly, hope to see you at one of them soon!
A big thank you to everyone who made it out to the album release shows! We got to play the new songs to about 400 people over the two shows, and couldn’t have had more fun celebrating with everyone! My album is now available for download on iTunes HERE, so please do download and have a listen. If you would like me to send you a mailed copy with a handwritten note you can do that HERE! Happy listening, and thanks so much for your support!

Huge thanks to everyone for your support! And to the musicians who made this album with me - you are all amazing!
Starting 2016 by releasing the video for ‘Heading North’ the title track off my new album. This song is about having confidence to do the things that scare you the most and looking for light everywhere. We recorded this video live on an incredibly stormy day in December, the wind rattling the boathouse, and the waves crashing right at it’s steps.
Please enjoy, and please share, and please have an amazing New Year!!!
Starting to count down the days now! My new album ‘Heading North’ releases January 15th 2016.

Jan 16 - White Rock // Jan 23 - Vancouver
Happy New Year!!
“My idea of Christmas, whether old-fashioned or modern, is very simple: loving others. Come to think of it, why do we have to wait for Christmas to do that?”
― Bob Hope

Lots happening the next couple months, with the most exciting being opening Dar Williams’ Vancouver show on Oct 24th at The Rogue Folk Club. Dar is deemed ‘One of the North America’s greatest singer songwriters’, and when I saw her perform in Toronto a couple years ago I was blown away.
Dates are also set for the second annual Acoustic Guitar Project (Dec 3) which I am curating for Vancouver, and my album release party (Jan 23).
In the meantime….try my favourite soup for this time of the year: French Country Chicken Soup and have a great Fall yourself!

-Sunday July 26th I’ll be playing the Main Stage at Mission Folk Fest, just before Canadian icon Sylvia Tyson….hope to see you there!
Well it’s been quite the Spring! I have been working hard for the last few months on my record, and I’m happy to say it’s finished. And with that comes a brand new website, new photos etc! In the meantime, enjoy this video I just pulled out from the archives of my band and I during our last tour playing one of our favourites from my first EP, called ‘West I Am.’
