More new stuff and a new record

Welcome back,

Here is a new video of me singing “Higher Ground” from MusicYYC. Some great folks over there shot a video of me hanging out at Commonwealth Bar and Grill. It’s about as soft as it gets. Sometimes I have a soft side.

Also big news…

A new record is in the works for me and the band. We’ve been rehearsing and writing in hopes to make a great record. Look for it in the summer. And then tell all your friends. All of them.

Doors open at 9. Tell your friends and tell you mom. Make it a girls night out. Get a damn babysitter. The kind of babysitter that stays over and looks after your kid. No need to go home this night. Pretend we’re young again.

Calgary Stampede

Hello Internet,

The Calgary Stampede has kicked off into full force. It started for us at The Palomino on friday night opening up for Vancouver band The Matinee. That kicked ass. Thanks to everyone who came out. Here’s a photo of the crowded stage.

The next morning the band and I opened up for Alberta legend Paul Brandt at a Stampede Breakfast. That came a bit early but we fought our way through it.

Friday July 12th, we’ll be hitting the stage at The Ironwood. 9pm start with Daniel Huscroft leading the way. Make sure to call (403) 269-5581 to reserve a table. 15 bucks at the door.

On July 13th a few members of the band and I will be participating in the 9th Annual Rock and Roll Rodeo for The Sick Kid’s Hospital at The Palomino. We hit the stage upstairs at 9pm.
