Honest Man, available February 26, 2016!

December 15th, 2015

Hi all,

I’ve been giddy just thinking about the news I have for you today: my new album Honest Man will be available from True North Records on February 26, 2016.

CD pre-orders are up here and I’ll be signing a limited number of the first bunch! You’ll also get the first single ‘Let’s Get Back’ delivered right away, but if you simply want to have a listen, Paste Magazine has just premiered it:

Thanks to all of you who put my music in your homes, I hope you enjoy the new racket. Tour dates for the Winter & Spring are already lining up on the tour page if you can make it out to a show! See you on the road.

Summer Tour Dates

June 25th, 2015

Hey All,

Summer has finally landed here at home and that means it’s time for me to hit the road.

So many shows that I’m excited for coming up in the next while. I start off with opening for one of my favs Gregg Allman then making my way for the Saskatoon Jazz Fest with The Mellotones to headline the MainStage. Not a bad way to kick start my summer.

All kinds of new places and a few spots that I’ll be making a return. I can’t wait.

Check out the tour page to see when I’ll be landing near you.

Keep the BBQ fires lit. See you on the road.
