Summertime time time…and the livin’ is easy.

Post Tour Best Bud Make Overs.

Holy frig, I did it. I drove from Thunder Bay to Halifax in our ’99 Band Van alone. I am a Jedi.The Universe is unfolding as it should. I landed in Toronto covered in power steering fluid as I spilled it all over myself after topping it up. Half asleep with legs of jell-o, I stumbled through the door of my best friends home.

Lindsay : “Carmen, get ready. We are outta here in 10 minutes…Aretha Franklin is playing down the street. It’s free.”

Me : “Arrrrreee you for real?”

I literally lost all communication skills and just stood there. I regained my composure, scooped my jaw up off of the kitchen floor, threw on some red lipstick and my leather jacket and was on my way to see Aretha. Now, my van needed to be repaired in Thunder Bay and I land in Toronto on this day of all days? Going to see the legendary Aretha with my bestest, oldest, friend?? Ahhhh…I think this what Dylan sings about…”a simple twist of fate”. It was a very special night <3

I am back in Halifax and it’s almost time to leave again. I am off to play Stan Fest this weekend!! This year will be special as it is a family affair. My sister, her husband and my adorable nephew attend every year. I am really looking forward to enjoying the music and art with them. I am also pretty stoked to see my buds The Divorcees play. It has been way too long.

Here are my set times for this weekend..

Saturday 1:00 PM – 2:00 PM Fogarty’s Cove Stage
Saturday 2:30 PM – 3:30 PM Boot Camp Writing Rock Songs

Thanks so much to everyone who made this tour amazing. I am beaming with happiness that we pulled it off.

Much love and rock



The Road is Looooooong….

We made it!! Coast to Coast in our little band van! Time is flying by and I seem to have forgotten to update my website with a post from the road. We are having a blast! Steve ( our new drummer) is an excellent addition to the band. It is really amazing how fast he has picked up the songs and the vibe of our little rock family. This tour would not have happened without him. We are rich in laughter on this wild ride.

We have managed to camp is some pretty sweet spots across the land!  What a beautiful country we live in. I was anxious to see the mountains again but I was not prepared for the Saskatchewan sunset. I have never seen anything so stunning. There has been no shortage of wildlife sightings either. I saw my first Grizzly Bear in the wild…from the van of course. Many thanks to everyone who came out to the shows and helped us along the way. We really do survive on the kindness of our friends and complete strangers. Thank you so much for you!

We are making our way back home. We have a bunch of shows in Alberta, then we hit Saskatoon and Winnipeg. I am excited to get back to the East Coast and prepare for one hell of a summer! Evolve is going to rule <3
