Well, there is a lot going on at Studio Records in downtown Vancouver. In mid October, myself and my bandmates entered into a contest called Best in Vancouver, focused on full band dynamics. We had an absolute blast playing our night with fellow Vancouver bands, Modern Day Poets, Flub the Duck, and out of town Island Funk Reggae Rockers – The Steadies.
They have also been running an open mic contest for solo artists on Wednesday nights over the last while, and will continue until the 18th of November – the final evening. Although the band didn’t get into the final of Best in Vancouver, I got in as a solo for the Open Mic Final, so if you’re looking for something to do that night, come check out this beautiful venue, and some of Vancouver’s amazing local performers.
The finals for Best in Vancouver (Full Bands) happens on November 21st, and will be well worth checking out as well.
YAY!! It’s October!! I absolutely love this month in general, but this particular October is going to be a ton of fun.
I just came off of the Vancouver Folk Society’s annual retreat weekend in White Rock, and would highly recommend this to anyone who loves to sing with a large group of really fun people. I had an absolute blast, and averaged jamming till 3am every night.
Lots of great places and themes for upcoming shows all over the province, so check below for the wheres and whens. Super pumped to go to Terrace in northern BC for the first time!!!
The video below is a teaser for one I am extremely excited about. My bandmates and I are taking the stage at Studio Records, Oct. 16th, as part of a contest with some amazing musicians in town. I have tickets for $10, so contact me if you’d like to get some in advance. They are $12 at the door.

If you’re coming to our night, I have tickets available for $10 ($12 at the Door), so drop me a line (email@example.com) and I can get those to you. If you can’t come to our night, check out some of the other nights. It’s all awesome music!
I actually don’t personally know any of the other bands yet, and am excited to meet/hear them. I was just acquainted with Kristina Lao (World musical traveller and music community super hero) who is also in the contest. She’ll be on October 9th, so go to her night if you can.
Hammer Records has been doing interviews with the bands involved in the event. Here is mine (Click the photo):
