I survived my Birthday Week/ECMAs! I must start this post by congratulating PEI on one of the best ECMAs yet. The Gala show alone was fantastic this year. We had some intense and sold out showcases. So many people to thank for supporting us. Big ups to Darren Gallop, Alison Giovannetti, Adam White, and Becky Walker for all of their support and help over the weekend. I was completely overwhelmed with the response from the shows over the week. Many thanks to everyone who came out, squished up front and sang along. It felt awesome. Oh, and thanks to Hunter’s Ale House for hosting our best Rock show this year. You guys RULE!
I am very happy to tell you that my buds Slowcoaster, Chris Colepaugh and the Cosmic Crew and Rose Cousins all took home awards this year. Much love to Rose for all of the beautiful little messages she sends my way. They are always a sweet surprise.. .and arrive at exactly the right time. Thanks to all for their awesome support and love, I felt a lot of it this week.
I was able to catch some sweet shows from bands I am hardly ever able to see live due to my crazy schedule. I was an instant fan of Boxer The Horse, Haunted Hearts, and Raccoon Bandit. So much talent on the East Coast, it is a whirlwind to keep up with. I’m very fortunate to be a part of this musical family.
It is now time for me to pack up my hiking boots, some guitars, some cozy sweaters and a coffee maker, and head to the woods of Cape Breton. I have been looking forward to this escape to the wilderness for a while now. I have a bunch of songs swimming around in my bones and a mountain of gigs to prepare for! I desperately need to be surrounded by ocean and trees for some well needed reconnection with Mother Nature.
I’ll be seeing you soon! Lots of shows coming up… can not wait for festival season! I need a new tent :D
Love and Rock
