I’m taking some time off this month to head into the studio. I’m pretty excited to be recording some new tunes. Steve Berlin is on board as producer. Steve has produced some of my favourite albums. I can’t wait to hear how it all turns out.
In November I’m making my way over to Europe to play some shows in Switzerland, Denmark and The Netherlands, then wrapping up that run with a few shows in the UK. Lots of new places on this run and a few familiar haunts. It’s going to be cool to check out Denmark, the land of my people.
Check out the tour dates and see if I’m close by, or if you’ve got some folks you know who may be into the show, send ‘em my way.
Oh, and keep your eyes posted here on my site for the announcement of my tour dates to release the new album.
See you on the road,
In a couple of weeks I’ll be rolling through NB with my big band (cheeky wink). I’m doing a short run of shows with Symphony New Brunswick. These fundraising performances will help support SNB musicians through better rehearsal spaces and more rehearsal time.
Sept. 23 @ Capitol Theatre – Moncton, NB
Sept. 24 @ The Playhouse – Fredericton, NB
Sept. 25 @ The Imperial – Saint John, NB
These kinds of shows are always a lot of fun. Nothing more powerful than a full string section behind ya. Visit the tour page for tickets & info.
I’m thrilled to announce that when I hit the road in the spring with my new album I will be performing at Massey Hall in Toronto on March 1st.
Tickets go on sale this week through MasseyHall.com and here at my site.
