Well, I’ve gone and done it. I’m up on the soundcloud, started posting songs from the new CD. Decided to put up the two songs that make me feel like summer “Warm Wind” is a sultry torch song and was written during a blistering hot weekend in Toronto. It is so beautifully produced by Dean Drouillard, you can really feel the heat. The other, “Pushin’ Me” – doesn’t happen in the summer, but has that road trip feel which comes from Roger Travassos’ work on the drums and an acoustic guitar that jangles along as I lay out the story which spans a decade. It starts in Sackville, NB and ends up outside the old Beverley Tavern in Toronto.
Anyway,when you’ve got a few minutes on your hands – listen here:
I’d love to hear what you think if you feel like sharing
October 8th, 2013 I’ll be taking the stage at Hugh’s Room in Toronto for the release of the new CD. I was toying with giving it the title of one of my favourite tracks “Victory Cafe” but settled on just using my name. So this second record is self-titled and the more I live with that the more I feel it fits. The record sounds fantastic thanks to Dean Drouillard who seriously elevated each song with his equally nuanced and dramatic settings. The lyrics are now set against short film scores.
Joining me for the release are Dean Drouillard on guitars, Roger Travassos on drums and Mark McIntyre on the bass. It is going to be a great night of music making, I’ve no doubt.
the show starts at 8:30pm and tickets are $20 ($16 in advance) – they’ve got a great menu too – dinner at 6:30.
Here’s the NOW listing with map and info including link to the Hugh’s Room site:
hope to see you there!!
