Florida recap, March release + upcoming shows!

January 25th, 2010

Hey Folks!

Lots of news these days. I had an amazing time at the 30A Songwriter’s Festival in Seaside, Florida. I played three shows there and all of them were packed with wonderful, appreciate audiences. And of course… I met some people from Nova Scotia! It always great to have a connection to home even when I’m far away. I also met some amazing musicians from all over the US (not to mention some wonderful people like Shawn Mullins, John Oates, Rodney Crowell and lots of songwriters from Nashville). I can’t wait to go back down south to do more shows, that’s for sure.

Now that I’m back home, I hard at work getting ready for my album release March 30th, 2010. I can’t tell you how excited I am to finally be releasing this record. It’s the culmination of a life long dream for me AND it’s just the beginning of so much more. You can still pre-order the new album through my website to get a personalized copy before it’s available in stores.

I also have some great upcoming shows in Nova Scotia. Come and hang out with me:

Jan 26th – 9pm @ The Seahorse in Halifax – Music Nova Scotia Battle to Canadian Music Week (full band show)
Jan 31st – 2pm @ Haiti Benefit Concert in Sherbrooke
Feb 6th – 7pm @ The Masonic Hall in Baddeck – w/ Buddy MacDonald and Rachel Davis
Feb 10th – 8pm @ The Paragon in Halifax – Art for Tomorrow Fundraiser

Album release shows TBA very soon so stay in touch!

And, as always, thanks for listening.
