Back in May I had a chance to explore Edmonton and Calgary. These adventures were a combination of tracing the family tree and pursuing artistic endeavors.
I explored a number of different neighborhoods while in Edmonton. Played a show at the Root Cellar with my good friend Sophie HeppelI (Third Branch/Dead Red Pine). Distributed CDs to radio stations, venue managers, and record stores. Then rode the Grey Hound to Calgary.
Calgary resulted in more exploring. Meeting venue managers. Making new friend’s at the hostel. Photoshoot and catch up with Stephen Exely regarding his upcoming article. I stumbled upon an evening of folk music and met Zachary Lucky & Cary Maicher.
When I returned home I discovered that I charted on Edmonton’s CJSR Folk/Roots/Blues charts. Which I find really exciting. Exciting to know that my music has made it out of BC, connecting with others elsewhere on this planet we live.
Summer has flown by. Played a number of shows in southern BC. Worked on an article in Vernon. I have been camping and mountain biking lots. Written a half dozen new songs. Working on new demos and a forthcoming single.
I know it is not over yet, but it is hard to believe to believe it is August. I have a few shows coming up this week, and will have some fall concert announcements in the near future!
Enjoy the sunshine while it lasts. Thanks for reading.
Till next time,
