It been too long since the last release so here we are. We’re making a new album! We just spent 4 days at monarch studios, tracking 7 songs and things are sounding bigger than ever. Wunderbar!
Everyday I am so greatful to be doing something I love. I want to sincerely thank The Foundation Assisting Canadian Talent On Recordings for their support on my upcoming release. In May was award a $21,000 Juried Sound Recording grant to put towards the recording and marketing of the new record. I can’t wait to get in the studio with my band and to finally share some new tunes with you. Stay tuned!
We’re super excited to be hosting a fundraiser to raise funding for my sophomore album and to be taking the stage once again in Port Moody at the lovely Inlet Theatre. This will be a performance not to miss!
