Been a crazy last few weeks. Every morning has been filled with tons of coffee while I learn and chart out songs, and the afternoons and evenings rehearsing and playing shows. Stayin busy and thats the way I like it! Here are some of the highlights.....
Took the via rail train (which was a first for me) for a private gig at the Ottawa museum of Nature with Candice Sand. Got to see some old friends who came back and enjoyed some wine with us at the hotel after the show.
Then played a show for Celia Palli (who is from Nelly Furtados band). We did her own music which is great and was nice to see Nelly come out and support. She is super down to earth and friendly!
Sunday was spent in the studio with Kira Isabella (pic attached) recording tracks on her upcoming single "quarterback" which is a killer tune! We all loved orange lounge studios (decorated like a morrocan living room). After that session, I raced to the trump towers where I played with a South African band for an event where the Prime Minister of Namibia and his colleagues were all attending. I was in heaven playing South African style tunes, as I grew up there but never got a chance to play that style as I was either in classical orchestras when I was younger or playing in my own metal bands!
Last night I played a sold out show with Kira at the Burlington performing arts centre with Tim Chiasson opening up. Killer musican and great guy from PEI canada. Show was super fun....we've been so used to playing college shows and clubs lately it was strange to play for a theatre type event, but we had a blast. Dan Kanter (from Biebers band) came out to check it out and chilled after the show. Super laid back nice guy!
Got some exciting stuff coming up in the next few weeks I'll be sure to write about soon! Stoked the weather is finally warming up as I'll be lacing up the running shoes and hitting the pavement just as hard as ever.
