VOTE FOR ME TO PLAY AMNESIA ROCKFEST!!

GUYS! Please help us ( the band too) score a set for the Amnesia Rockfest happening in Quebec next month! I was lucky enough to support Heart a few years ago on a massive stage every night with just an acoustic guitar. It was an amazing experience, but I really missed the rock show. Please go here  http://amnesiarockfest.com/cr2014/liste.php?lang=en , scroll down to find my picture and vote! You can vote everyday! We only need to make the top 10 to have a solid chance! We want to melt thousands of faces at once. Did I mention Joan Jett , Weezer,  Alice In Chains, Primus and Megadeath are going to be there? Oh man…..I promise we’ll cover The Beastie Boys again :D Thanks! in advance!

Love and Rock

Heeeey you guuuuuys!

Hey! I am over the moon to share with you that I have a new band and I now a keyboard player! I just updated some shows for the summer. I am feeling pretty excellent these days after letting the business of music get me down…..Oy Vey! All is good in the hood :) I always tend to use FB/Twitter for updates. I am sorry for not being active on my website! Lots more news to come soon. This weekend I will be performing with Party Boots as a special guest at The Seahorse! I’ll be singing my own tunes as well as a few from Tina Turner, The Beatles, The Travelling Wilburys and The Everly Borthers!  Good thing I’m versatile!  Love and Rock!

P.S New Song! Calling Out Your Name

Ground control to Major Townsend…

Nova Scotia Music Week is here!!! Sydney, Cape Breton….ahhh what can I say? The rock scene here is to blame for my undying belief in the ultimate rock and roll band. I feel blessed to be from here. I had a wicked summer beach bumming, writing and visited Nashville for the first time! I even got a wave from Jack White. The universe was on my side that day :)  I can’t wait to go back. Tomorrow you can catch me at the Gordie Sampson Songcamp show at 5pm in the Holiday Inn. Stay tuned for more music week magic!

Love and rock

Jay Smith

My tears haven’t stopped for you, your family, your babies, your band of brothers and the heartbroken songsters who you have inspired for so many years. One of my favourite tours was an acoustic tour I did with Jay Smith and Mike Le Lievre. We called it the “Well, There You Go Right There Tour.. Part 2″  We shared a lot of dreams and bad jokes in that tiny car. Hearing you and your sweet sister Chelle sing together all these years was such a treat. I feel privileged to have witnessed your evolving talent over the years and have shared many sunsets of song with you and the gang  in that time. I must say I held a lot of hope for a Rock Ranger reunion.  We lost another Cape Breton Legend yesterday.  My heart breaks for everyone who knew and loved you. You were the real deal, Bud.

Long may you run.

New Year, New Stuff!

I did it again. I forgot about my presence here on the site! Sorry, my lovelies. I am all up in Twitter’s face as well as Facebook. :)

There are some sweet developments in the works right now. We will be performing on The Candy Show! I am not sure of all the details yet but we are pretty excited! My amazing Manager/Booking Agent, Tiffany Spencer, is working extremely hard ( as usual) putting all the pieces together so we can pay a visit to Europe this summer too. I am also anxious to get back to Ontario. I will be sure to keep you in the loop.  In the meantime, I will be joining my friend Ben Caplan at The Company House on January 31st. I will be opening the show with an acoustic set. Word on the street is that the tickets are almost gone!

I hope everyone is having a wicked New Year!

Love and Rock

Ground Control to Major Townsend

Ahh Jeez,  I always forget about my website. I am all over Twitter and Facebook, but I seem to abandon my site… I will do better.

Soooo I have a new band, and they are amazing. Jordan Oakie and Alan Hoskins from the legendary Halifax punk rock band Myles Deck and the Fuzz. I have been a fan of MDATF for years, played numerous shows with them and I am more than thrilled to have them be a part of this wild ride. We have some new tunes, and Alan also plays a mean piano!! Rock organ all over the place.

I had an excellent time at Nova Scotia Music Week! We made some new friends from Germany and I am very excited to let you know that we are in the early planning stages of taking our rock and roll monster overseas again. I also played with the Jubilee Orchestra that weekend and it was oodles of fun. Singing swing tunes has become a true love of mine and there is now a sweet project in the works!

I wanted to extend a massive thank you to Symphony Nova Scotia, David Christensen, Jonathan Govias, and every single musician who was a part of the symphony show at the Rebecca Cohn. Also, much love to the audience and a major congratulations to Ben Caplan and Carleton Stone for a job well done. Never in a million years could I have ever dreamed up a more incredible opportunity. I am honoured to have been invited to perform with such talented people!

I promise I will keep you up to date here! Stay tuned for more news :D

Let There Be…LOVE.

The guitars are back.  Your support, love, and jokes has made the last few days bearable. All reward money is being returned. If you need your donation back ASAP, please email me. Sunday will be refund day :) I can’t write much as I am practicing my Elivs song for a wedding  I am attending in a few hours! My first same sex wedding ceremony….Love is a beautiful thing.

Let it be known that you should always listen to your gutt instinct. That little voice in your head that says “Don’t do that, it’s not a good idea” is telling the truth. DO NOT deal with strangers regarding any type of criminal activity. Call the police. Do not leave valuables in the trunk of  your locked, alarmed car. DO NOT take anything seriously posted on messageboards. You probably shouldn’t tweet, email, or send hateful, threatening messages to people who have  been robbed and who are dealing with police. I mean….come on guys….use your brain.

Anyway, Thank you to all the media who contacted me. I never imagined this type of response. EVER. To every musician who called and emailed offering their guitars…Thank You! To everyone who was on my side, you were an army of awesome. Extra thanks to Gordie Johnson  ( Big Sugar ) for  sharing his story and sending me a “Chin up” email. To Becky walker, Marc-Antoine Robertson, Lindsay-Bea Davis, TJ Webb, Live 105, Global, CBC, Chronicle Herald, Q104, Music Nova Scotia, EVERYONE…Oh man , I don’t want to forget anyone. I’ll write more later!! Time to get my Elvis on.

Love, Rock, Justice, and Kindness.

Ottawa Blues Fest-ing!

Looks like I’ll be pleading my Rock and Roll case to the judges of She’s The One Emerging Female Artist Contest at this year’s Ottawa Blues Fest! Out of hundreds of entries from across the country, I was selected as one of 3 semi-finalists in the band category  to perform a 20 minute set in hopes of taking home the grand prize of $5000!  I’ll be travelling to Ottawa to  perform in the afternoon on Saturday, July 7th. Shane O’Handley will be joining me as well as drummer saviour extraordinaire Jordan Oakie ( Something Good, Myles Deck and the Fuzz). It sure would be sweet to win….a tour van is desperately needed as our van from the Cross Canada Tour last year has bit the dust. I have come to learn that touring in a Corolla loses it’s charm quite quickly :) Regardless of the outcome, I am stoked to play the festival and share my music….Oh yeah,  Alice Cooper and Iron Maiden will be playing the festival that night. *excited face*  Well, there you go right there! Fun will be had.

Send me some sweet vibes! More info to come!…I love you.

Love and Rock

Hello Beautiful People,

Time for another massive  ”Thank You!”  The ECMAs seem like a dream that was over much too fast. Thank you to everyone who voted. I was not prepared  to accept the Rising Star award. I forgot to thank my family, friends and fans….I still love you like crazy. The entire weekend felt like one big shiny award. I love being surrounded by so many talented people. I crashed a few hotel parties, made tons of new friends and laughed more than I sang. Jackpot alert!

I have a few fun things to tell you about. I will be performing live in studio at Live 105 this Friday at 5pm. Halifamous Jordan Oakie and Alan Hoskins will be saving the day as my emergency fill in band. On  April 28, I’ll be performing at The Seahorse Tavern for the Rockabilly Riot Johnny Cash Tribute. The following weekend we will land in beautiful St. Andrews, NB for Paddlefest and then May 11 I play an acoustic set at The Rockbottom in Halifax. I am also beyond stoked that I will be travelling to New York City and Nashville this summer to do some co-writing for the new record. *EXCITED FACE*

Once again, thank you so much to everyone who has been such a great support and encouraging light in my life. Sometimes it is easy for me to get discouraged. Every time that happens, I am immediately reminded how lucky I am to have my friends, family, fans and fellow musical warriors by my side.

Have a look at this fun video I made with one of my favourite bands, The Motorleague. They recently raised $3000 for Cystic Fibrosis Canada and they are still raising money! These guys are just the best dudes ever. I was delighted to be a part of one of their awesome Heritage Moment Videos.

Love and Rock
