I received a phone call earlier today letting me know that my latest record, Fireball had been long listed for a 2014 Polaris Music Prize. Somehow the machinery responsible for tallying the final count last week made a mistake, so rather than a list of 40 records, Polaris will be a list of 41 this year. Amazing! I like the idea of being left off the list and still getting into the party. Suits me just fine.

Either way, I am grateful for this unexpected recognition of my work and to the many music journalists across Canada who gave Fireball this rare distinction. Thanks folks.

Going out to the West Coast on a tour we started in November and couldn’t finish. Still winter here in Manitoba somehow… I hope these shows bring some hot weather and rock and roll to those who need it.

Two shows booked for the end of this month. My drummer, Rob Gardiner and I will trade Winnipeg’s dark snow and long-frozen streets for a few days of sunshine and rock and roll in Saskatchewan. See the SHOWS page for details.
