“Christmas is coming, the geese are gettin’ fat”…and we have new holiday material to share with you starting next month. We’ve had some recording time in studio over the last couple months, and have a 4 song winter EP to share; 2 new songs and a couple Christmas standards. See the dates in the tour calendar for some wonderful performances coming up, including a JazzFM.91 Jazz Safari at Lula Lounge donor event, Royal York Hotel’s Epic Wine Bar, headlining at the Toronto Christmas Festival at the Distillery for the 5th year, and as featured artist for TD Music Fridays at Union Station.
As we head deep into the heat of summer, the writing sessions heat up with some amazing collaborators, including Denielle Bassells, Nathan Hiltz, wrapping up a tune with Tia Brazda, and Collin Simmons. Spoiler alert; some of these have Xmas/holiday lyrics, and we’re stoked to be working towards an EP/album for this winter, or if the grant gods permit, a feature album/double EP. Stay tuned for more info later this summer!!
A brilliant start to the spring collaborating with some talented singers and songwriters. Highlights coming up include sitting in/duets with Alex Pangman, Denielle Bassels, Melissa Lauren, Katya Ramu, and Joanna Majoko. Duets album someday, perhaps? One can only hope… New music in progress, to be shared in the coming months.
Upcoming dates in Montreal and Ottawa, with more to come!
New dates for the new year coming, both local in Toronto at Jazz Bistro for our ongoing residency, Miles Nadal Centre, and many more to be announced. As well, dates in Detroit along noted trumpeter Duane Eubanks, as well as a tour of Ottawa, Montreal, and other cities TBA. Stay tuned for some new live videos and music coming for Spring 2017!
Writing up a storm with some amazing jazz/traditional-pop collaborators. Looking forward to sharing this new material over the next few months at concerts in Toronto, NYC, and Montreal. Stay tuned for some new video content — will tease out some live performances shortly! Merry music-making!
