Thank you to everyone who was a part of my tour in Germany and Denmark this past month. It was a beautiful tour where I met so many wonderful people, and I can’t wait to come back!
Amongst all the confusion and the chaos we need art more than ever. This song came tumbling out in November when the world (and myself) was shocked that such a person promoting hate could be supported. Our parents, and grandparents fought for the same things we are fighting for now, equality for all races, all genders.
When I woke up this morning and heard news of the mosque attack in Quebec I decided to record this song and share it. It asks more questions than answers, but in the end for us all to ‘Stand up for the people who need standing up for.’ Love from Germany. Video HERE
My first tour of Germany begins this month alongside the beautiful Hanne Kah! Check out her music HERE and her new record ‘Hand Full of Secrets’. I will also be playing in Denmark Feb 4th at the Traeden Folk Festival.
Very glad to be included on this compilation album full of beautiful musicians. All proceeds of digital downloads go to the food bank, so download, and share around! Big thanks to Luca Fogale for putting this together! Album HERE
I’m off to the Rocky Mountains for a three week artist residency at The Banff Centre For Arts and Creativity. I’m really lucky to get to spend time at this renowned Canadian institution to write, learn, and collaborate! I’ll be back in Vancouver to share some of my new songs Tuesday Nov 29th at Shari Ulrich’s Bluebird North. xo
Truly honoured to have been a part of this project in Austin earlier this year. Take a look at this PBS episode airing across the US to meet the other amazing musicians that I got to live and write with.
‘Honey’ from my EP Boats plays during the end of the episode!
Here’s a new song I just recorded for your listening pleasure! I just finished writing it before recording, but thought it would be fun to share. I have a great summer of shows upcoming with the band, I hope you’ll join us for one!
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 happy to share a new video for ‘Ammunition’ that we filmed at a tiny church on the Gulf Islands. The power was out for most of the day, but came back on right before we started shooting! Hope you enjoy.
I’m hitting the road in April for a Spring mini tour! I’m bringing along my trio, as well as an excellent musician from Australia, Larissa Tandy. Hope you’ll join us!

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!

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. Here’s a sneak peak of the artwork, the portrait shot on film, in a freezing cold carpentry studio in East Vancouver. Hope to see you at one of the release shows in January! Jan 16 - White Rock // Jan 23 - Vancouver
Happy New Year!!
