I just released a new EP of covers, entitled “Covers.” It was recorded at Memorial University in St. John’s towards the end of the summer. I would consider these to be the finest recordings available of what I’ve been getting into recently. My relationship with music is rapidly changing. I don’t know when I will be getting on a stage again. I played a great show on Friday of last week. I loved it. Where I go from here remains to be seen. This EP is a fine example of the practice and investment that my collaborators and I put in to refining this approach over the summer of 2016.
I am wrapping up a short run of tour dates, tagging along with Steve Maloney on stops in Toronto, Guelph, Saint Andrews and Moncton, and I am very pleased to announce that I’m going to be doing a nice fancy album launch event for “Museum” in my second hometown of Montreal, Quebec. The show is on September 17th at Glass Door Gallery and will also feature a set by Justin Wright’s Music for Keeping Warm.
I was also nominated for a shiny new MusicNL Award in the Folk/Roots Category. I never really considered myself a folk musician, but I am honoured nonetheless by the acknowledgement; the fact that it doesn’t really seem to fit hopefully speaks more to the genreless-ness of the music than it does to me being a narcissistic dork (which I am). I am excited to join in the celebration of Newfoundland musical culture by heading to Bonavista for a showcase during MusicNL Week with my Void Boy Squad…. Congrats to the other nominees and I’ll see you all there!
I’m doing a show at George Street United Church on December 23rd with local darling angel bb Kat McLevey and mysterioso hidden legend of lore, Fog Lake. This is going to be pretty insane. It’ll be doors at 8pm. We are taking foodbank donations for Bridges to Hope as well! Pure joy.
Alright ya I recorded 7 new records this month, ranging widely in styles. Please listen to them all at once. Here are some links:
