After 4 years of build up, writing, walking, rewriting, walking some more, collaboration, sweat, blood, tears, and laughter….all of it came to beautiful fruition at St. James Hall on Friday night. Meet the cast of characters that helped me to bring All We Ever Need into this world. From the left, Jon Anderson, Natalie Ramsay, Bre McDaniel, Shera Kelly, Darren Beattie, Me, Chris Couto, Colleen O’Connor, and Heather Hay! What an honour it was to play to a packed house with this all star team.
I wanted to take a moment to thank all the wonderful supporters who contributed to the fundraiser, and to the Creative BC/BC Music Fund team for helping to make this project real. With the new album in hand and properly launched, so starts the action of this project with all that was intended for it – increasing connection, building community, and growing the love! Giddy up folks. Giddy up!!
Pumped to be back at Protection Island with Jon Anderson today and tomorrow, continuing solid work on All We Ever Need. Had the honour of having Bodhran superstar, Blake Williams join in for a very special tune. Judging by our feet, I’m sure you can guess what song we were plugging away on….:). It’s all sounding so so good!!!
Happy Thanksgiving all!
I can’t think of a better day to post this. I began the recording of my new album (All We Ever Need) with Jon Anderson on Friday and Saturday, and will continue on and off throughout this month and early November. The first couple of days have been fantastic, and it’s sounding pretty sweet! Brought in a couple of characters to contribute their musicality to a couple of tunes (Darren Beattie and Shera Kelly), and as you can see below, they know how to candidly pose for a camera :).
I am so thankful for all the support that made the recording of this album possible! It’s been an overwhelming experience to hear back how it is already taking shape. You guys and gals are gonna love it!
Enjoy the weekend, and more updates soon!
