Looking forward to playing the main stage tomorrow night, August 8, at the Summar Festival... we're on half past midnight so bring your sweaters, your sing-along hearts and your lighters :-) I've got a full band with me including a string quartet...see you there!
Oh, and next week I hit the studio again for more recording. Album almost there!
It's always a good feeling when a song of yours finds a place in the movies. "Who Am I" is featured in the opening credits of the feel good movie "Cowgirls 'N Angels 2 - Dakota's Summer. The film premiered this month and is available on iTunes.
It's finally spring and my D-vitamin deficient body delights at every ray of sunshine, every hint of something good to come. My album is coming along and we're in the second half of the journey...nearing the shore you could say. I'm also working on a little book of poems, so if all goes according to plan then you'll have something to read as well as something to listen to, dance to, cry to, laugh to, drive to, drink coffee to. May spring be as exhilarating and hopeful for you as it is for me. Don't worry, not all my days are good and I'm far from an optimist, but it doesn't hurt to post a positive news update when you're finally feeling like your in the groove after a long, hard winter.
January walked in with good vibes and a pocket full of inspiration. The new year deserves a new album and Mr.Producer (Niclas Johannesen) and I are hard at work. Can't wait to let these new song babies into your arms. We bought an old 1965 Gibson from a friend who found it at a guitar show and it's adding some great character to a few tunes. I love when you can hear the life, the years, the story in an instrument.
Will be back with some live dates, but for now Happy New Year friends! Let's make it a great one.
All good things must come to end they say. But I insist on never saying goodbye to these beautiful West Coast mountains and the amazing folks on this side of the world...just see you later. I've had the best time recording in L.A. with Matt Chamberlain, seeing my Dad after four long years, watching eagles in English Bay, performing at the Vancouver Folk Festival, soaking in the West Coast sunset and writing songs. I feel so lucky to be able to do what I love with creative, genuine people.
Next stop is Greenland, where I'll be performing for the West Nordic Days in Katuaq, Greenland's Culture House. An evening where Greenland, Iceland and the Faroe Islands share the stage. My first time ever to Greenland and looking forward to it. Here's the link: http://www.katuaq.gl/da/Arrangementer/Musik/Vestnordiske-Dage---Koncert
