Good day all! I'm busy working on yet another recording. This CD/album is called Cabin Speak. It's a collection of stories, woodsy experiences and northern themed tunes living on the edge of Algonquin Park. Stay tuned :)
Here is a video live from my cabin - a song that will be on the new CD. It's dedicated to the kids on reserves up in our northern reaches, in hopes they will hear it and be inspired to reconnect with their culture and improve the state of things in our country/the world.
Lots on the go... a new CD called 'Northwest' that will be out very soon now, and a new home which I've set up shop at. It's not just any home, it's a cozy cabin at the edge of Algonquin Park, at Northern Edge Algonquin, on Kawawaymog Lake.
I'll be here playing for guests as always! Right now there are no guests, so it's quiet, great inspiration for writing. When I'm not working on music I'm helping out with stewardship projects - like working with plants in the greenhouse :-) The days sure are full. I'll keep everyone posted as much as I can, though it's hard to be on a computer out here!
A little clip from a recording session for my upcoming CD called Northwest. These two guys rocked! Meet Matt Elwood on banjo and Ben Plotnick on the fiddle :-) Very honoured to have these two as a part of my project.
Hard at work facebooking and youtubing cat videos while surrounded by some of the finest recording gear on earth. I may have also spent 10 hours editing some recently recorded material too! Things are starting to come together for Northwest. And cat videos are sweet.
So i'm recording a solo CD with me SINGING this time! It's called Northwest, and is about my experiences travelling and living in Saskatchewan, BC, Yukon and NWT. I'll keep the updates coming! I'm really excited about this cd!
Here's a pic of me laying down the guitar tracks :-)
