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!
