I’ve been writing a lot of songs lately and I think I’ll make a new record this winter if all goes according to plan. In the meantime, I’m touring the east coast of Canada solo next week – September 27 – October 4. Come hear some new songs. I love touring so much! See you soon.
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.
