Fires, Floods & Things We Leave Behind

My Brand New Record

I was 3-months deep into writer’s block when a few friends asked me to join them on a road trip along Route 66, covering 5000kms from start to finish. My response was to clear my schedule and start packing. In that moment, I realized what I had been missing the key ingredient to my songwriting: experience. I poured out as much emotional baggage as I could in my last album Débridée and here I was, sitting alone in my apartment in Toronto during what felt like the longest winter, bored to tears. So I got online, rented am RV and flew to Chicago to start the adventure.

I’m an artist. I’m a performer. But without new material, I am unemployed. For me, new songs don’t write themselves sitting alone indoors. They are written in conversations with strangers. In breathing unfamiliar air. In getting lost.

Ten days, many wrong turns and countless laughs later I returned home, calling upon some of the most talented folks I know to collaborate with and soon had an album of new tunes ready to record. This album is meant to be listened to like a soundscape to a imaginary film that will guide you from Nashville to Vegas through desert canyons, into western ghost towns, while sleeping in dingy motels and stopping at strange truck stops along the way. I’ve had an absolute blast exploring the depths and breadth of these songs and hope you enjoy listening to them. Maybe you’ll take them on your own road trip, they’d love that.

I’m thrilled to present to you this Pledge campaign including three extra special ‘experiences’: a personalized fragrance designing session, a night out on the town in Nashville and a horseback riding adventure. Don’t worry, you don’t HAVE to choose these things- you can still pre-order CDs, vinyl, t-shirts and other merchandise. From the bottom of my heart I want to thank you for your ongoing support. No matter what item you choose, it all helps to keep me doing what I love- making music and connecting with folks like YOU.

PS Sharing is caring :)
