FALL TOUR!  

 

I CANNOT believe my Fall Tour starts tomorrow!!!! 

It feels like forever ago since I started planning and although it took forever to plan, I still cannot believe it is here! In hindsight, it may not have been the best idea to start a new job, move to a new city and start a 6 weekend tour in the same month....but YOLO right? I am trying to make the most of my single years, where I have the time and freedom to travel every weekend and sleep in my car at any chance I can get. To be honest, I don't feel super prepared but I know once I focus and start playing, I will enjoy every moment! It's gonna be a lot, I mean A LOT, of driving and sleeping in my car may get colder and colder as the weeks go on but here goes nothing! (If you are wondering, I do have a lot of friends places to crash at...)

 

What are my hopes for this tour? 

I hope that I can see YOU out at the shows. I hope to make new connections and friends. I hope for stories that inspire songs. I hope for safety and the serenity of solo driving. I hope for sanity and phone calls with friends when I'm bored and lonely. I hope to learn and grow and become better at what I do, and I hope to move people with my songs; that they become a part of your story, just as much as they are mine. 

 

See ya on the road, folks!

Peace 

Fall Update! 

Hey Everyone! 

It has been a wild and crazy summer and I have been off the grid (aka I couldn't afford to keep my website online) but I am back and ready for a new year! I like to consider fall more of my new year than the actual new year because it is so full of change. The change in season, the start of school and the kick off to the much anticipated holidays to come seem to make September my January. So I'm kicking off the 'new year' with a TOUR! This baby took way longer to plan than I hoped or would like to admit but I am so glad that the planning is over and now I can tell y'all about it and get ready to hit the road! I'm a little bit insane because I will be teaching music during half of the week and touring during the other half, so there will be a lot of driving and a lot of late night chats with my friends on the road (with my headphones of course!). I'm glad I love the open road! 

 

In other news.....I have been nominated for TWO YYC MUSIC AWARDS!!!! WHHHATTTT?!?!?! I actually can't even believe it. I have felt so alone in this musical journey so far that it is so encouraging to be recognized for all the hard work! I must be doing something right!!! I am so thankful for the Calgary music community and am really looking forward to getting more plugged in in the coming year. I am still new to Calgary so this is a great step forward for me! Go YYC! 

I am also heading out to the CCMA's to play at a showcase! It is my first big awards weekend and although I won't be there for much of it, I am really looking forward to meeting some people and getting a feel for what all the fuss is about! Thank you OCL Studios, Porch Swing and all the other people who have made this showcase possible! It is such an honor! 

 

If you would like to follow my fall journey, follow my on Instagram, Facebook and Twitter! If you can make it out to a show near you, please do! Your physical, moral and financial is HUGE and such an important part of my continued success and sustainability as an artist. 

 

Thank you for listening and we will see YOU on the road, folks! 

 

Cheers,

SOCIAL MEDIA 


I'm amping up my social media this year and am looking forward to sharing more of myself with you! Here's an overview of what to expect in the coming months!
 
                                    MONDAY - BLOG POST
                                    Check the website to hear a weekly update about what's going on in my life, what books i'm reading, up and coming news about my                                             music and tours and MORE! It's a place for me to share more with you about what makes me tick and to follow along with me on my                                             journey as a musician.

                                    TUESDAY - 'SONG-DAY TUESDAY'
                                    "Songday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday, Saturday, Sunday!"
                                    Everyday of the week, we are being exposed to new music out there, it's almost overwhelming. On Twitter, I will be posting a link to a                                           new song that I have been listening to in the past week, months or year. Some of the songs may be old to you, but are new to me.                                               Whatever is freshly inspiring, I plan to share in hopes that you will gain a deeper understanding of my current life soundtrack.
                                
                                    THURSDAY - THROWBACK
                                    Classic throwback. . . This will be the twitter post where I will share the music that has shaped me in my formative years. From pre-                                               school to high school to even what my parents listened to, it is so important to know where you come from and whether you are musical                                       or not, music shapes our lives. 

                                    FRIDAY - 'TAKE COVER'
                                    Get excited! I will be posting some of my favourite covers every friday! It's about time, hey? I'll even take requests! 

Looking forward to tomorrow, the first "Song-day Tuesday" being my new single "CROONER SING TO ME!"

Cheers,
