Hope you are enjoying the summer season where ever you may be! It’s gorgeous here in YYC and I’m planing to have a “staycation” this year, mainly because I’m in songwriting boot-camp! My new album is being recorded in the beginning of August so the countdown is on…5 more weeks! I am delighted to be creating this collection of songs with my uber talented band: Chris Andrew (piano), Tyler Hornby (drums) and George Koller (bass). George Koller is also going to be co-producing the album with Kodi Hutchinson so i’m in good hands. I’m excited and can’t wait to share this with you soon!

Congrats to all my JUNO Nominated friends and Colleagues! What a great weekend of Juno Fever we had here in Calgary, so nice to see the whole city buzzing with music and artists at every venue. I saw some amazing artist perform and did a little performing myself at the CHRONOGRAPH RECORDS showcase. Had the pleasure of attending the Juno welcome reception at the new National Music Centre and all i can say is WOW, what an amazing building that is. Can’t wait for it to open and to have such a classy venue right here in our backyard!
Great to meet so many new and familiar music industry faces. Until next year everyone❤ #junos2016#junoselfie#canadianmusic
