News! Thanks to all y'all who caught Steel Audrey and I on our Western Canada tour last month- we had an unforgettable three weeks of great shows and rocky mountain highs and met some fantastic people. Including you (maybe).
Next up? There's a couple Vancouver shows coming up for me- Aug 20th at the Jericho Folk Club and Sep 19th at St. James Hall with Jasper Sloan Yip. The rest of the Fall I'll be touring Canada with The Fugitives to support our new record, Everything Will Happen. Dates for the Fugitives tour will be going up shortly at www.fugitives.ca.
Speaking of the Fugitives, we put out a little appetizer EP in July called Bigger Than Luck, and it's been getting a lot of love on the CBC and has been in the top 10 on the Canadian college folk charts (yah!) for several weeks as well as cracking the CMJ charts in the U.S. If you'd like to hear/get the new stuff, go HERE (digital) or HERE (physical). If you'd like to read about our new CD getting mixed up with an audio weight loss instructional CD (yes, really), go HERE.
Other than that? I'm writing new tunes. I'm getting mad at Russia for being so bigoted and the Olympics for being complacent weaklings (check out Stephen Fry's letter about it here). I'm taking advantage of the little Vancouver summer I'm around for and doing Vancouverish things like canoeing to see movies (movies like Vinterberg's The Hunt, which is one of the best films I've seen in a long while). And otherwise getting along.
Anyway, happy August, friends. See you in the Fall.
