Hey all, hope your well out there. The fall season here in the north has been just beautiful. Just returned from a 2 week tour of Newfoundland, where good things took place, thanks to my manager and band for working so hard for me, I love NFLD. Lots of things in the works for 2014, new album, and big tours.
We start recording after xmas, and head overseas in the spring for 60 dates in Scandinavia & Europe, look for us in Sweden, Denmark, Germany, Holland, France, Belgium, Spain, and Italy. I am really excited to tour Spain and the Canary Islands for the first time, as well as return to Scandinavia.
In November I am heading to El Salvador on a writers retreat. 10 Days off the grid, on the beach, guitar, pen, paper, and nothing but time for lyrics and rhyme. This December 10, I am doing a special concert in my hometown which I really excited about. My goal is to raise $7500 for wheelchair athlete Jessica Frotten, to help her attend an international race, get a new racing chair and train for the summer olympics. Her story really inspired me, from her accident in 2009 to Canada Games medal winner in 2013. If you live in the Yukon I hope you support this amazing event. Here are the details,
