I write to you from a treehouse on the Montreal plateau from which perch I am gathering together details for the recording of my upcoming solo album. Things are getting exciting and that’s all I can say for now. AND! I will soon announce an Ontario/Quebec tour for June/July 2014 with one of my favourite singer-songwriters.
Meanwhile, please enjoy this live performance of new song Paradise, from the upcoming record. It’s from a show opening for the Alin Coen Band in Kiel, Germany in January and it features members of my musical family abroad: Jan Frisch (guitar), Hannes Huefken (bass), Fabian Stevens (drums), filmed by Henriette Grueber. Enjoy!
Spent a beautiful day with the Exclaim! folks in Toronto and filmed a video on my old pal Matt Morgan’s porch. Later I played an opening set across the street at Saving Gigi for the National Sheild. Thanks to Matt, Roberto and crew!
Springtime in Montreal inspired Van Royko and I to capture ‘Back to the Woods’ in its appropo setting. Featured is a harp from D’Aigleharps on loan until mine is finished. To support the cause, please order a copy of Wire Wood Wind click here! Video sound by Emory Murchison and sound mix by Kyle Stanfield.

What an absolute pleasure to have Rolf Hansen (Il Tempo Gigante) sitting in on this Balcony TV video in Hamburg. Shot on April 2, 2011 this beautiful day marked the half-way mark of a two-month long tour of Germany.

Hannah and I spent a lovely afternoon with Derreck of ASTW. After we posted this video, the house to the left of the walkway invited us to play a neighbourhood concert on their patio.
We waited all afternoon for the perfect light. Thanks Hannah and Derrick for a legendary day.
Thanks to Benjamin Schuetze for taking a break from film editing to record some percussion with us in Watson Street Alley, Vancouver. Another beauty from ASTW.
