Recorded live off the floor in Kelvingrove, PEI, December 12th, 2021. Do give it a listen! Currently only available on Bandcamp. Listen here:
I am going to be back in the studio in just a matter of weeks with an album’s worth of new songs, and some old (like my song Beautiful Land of Ontario).
I received a Toronto Arts Council Grant, which is making this project possible, but in order to make this album everything that it can be, I need to raise a bit more. I have a campaign on Indiegogo to support the project and there is a matched donation that will make all small donations go even further. If you happen to be so inclined, you can support the project by following the link below. Thank you for all the support over the years, I’m really looking forward to sharing the finished project with you.
This spring I am giving a series of short, free livestreams, themed on the “Early Spring”. Join me on April 27th and May 4th at 7pm EST. To RSVP and receive email reminders about the shows, click the links below!
The wait is finally over! You can now stream all of “Many A Long Hour” on Spotify, Apple Music, Youtube Music and wherever else you stream. You can now add my songs to a playlist for any mood! You can also use them for background music on your Instagram and TikTok videos. Ditto for “Carol of the Birds.” They’re here for you, have fun.
I am grateful and excited to announce that I have been awarded a Toronto Arts Council Grant to create my next album!!!
Those of you who enjoyed “Many A Long Hour” can look forward to a bigger, more ambitious project. If you’ve been to any of my shows recently, you’ve already had a preview of what is to come! Much more news on this to follow!
PS: I’ll be playing a song or to from this future project on my Christmas Special Tour 2021. You can find the link to tickets in the “Shows” tab.

Here’s a link to the article. The response to the album so far has been amazing. Thank you for all of the support! There will be three dates in November and December and more to be announced soon!
