Writing and Pushups

Writing and Pushups

This time of year, the weight of the “last third” comes down on me. It hits me in September every year: two thirds disappeared already. I get an urgent need to write, more than usual.

All big things are built fromĀ a collection of small habits. The craft, the skill of songwriting comes in strong like a muscle when it’s used often. So every morning, I do pushups. And then I write.

I’ve also been doing a lot of collaborative sessions lately, stretching my writing muscles with the help of other artists I admire. We sit in dark rooms, around kitchen tables, in little studios, and we work away at the craft. It’s just my favourite thing…

Summer Festivals

Summer Festivals

The summer passed in a rush of sun and heat and long weekends tethered by a line of lovely shows. I’m sending a big thanks to the Festivals that presented my show this summer including the New Glasgow Riverfront Music Jubilee and the Lunenburg Folk Harbour Society.

And to the sweet people who came out to see us play, my heart is in my hand, as always. Thank you for listening and giving back so very much.
