Updates & News

Hello Darlin', Nice to see you. It's been a long time... - June 27th 2014

Hey everyone! As the great Conway Twitty once said, "It's been a long time" since anything has been posted or updated, but it was a quiet winter of thought and reflection. Thankfully due to the cold weather a lot of tea was consumed (A bright-side to everything). Purposely kept a low profile this past winter but we did play a scattered show here and there (though they weren't posted) and also had the chance to be part of something I'm excited to share with you later this summer.

For random little things or if you want to say hello or share something you can also follow along on Twitter and Facebook. I post to Twitter a little more frequently as I am not a big fan of Facebook.

Hope you're all spending your days with laughter!

News & Another Video Online - Nov 13th 2013

Had a great weekend, played a really fun show at Swirsky's in Corner Brook and then headed to the Music NL Awards Gala to perform a "Pale Rider". Was nominated for "Best Folk/Roots Artist" but the award went to Amelia Curran, I'm ok with that, she is amazing!

Also stumbled upon a living room performance video of "Into The Earth' with Daniel Payne, Neil Targett, and Andrew Ross. This is from the same night as the previous two videos, it just got lost on a hard drive until now... Check it out, leave some youtube/facebook thoughts, pass/post it around!

New Merch - Screenprint Poster! - March 18th 2013

Hey everyone! Had the urge a few weeks ago to make a screenprint poster, so sat down and sketched out some rough ideas, settled on one, then went into the printshop with a friend and banged it out. Below is a video of the overall process and a link to purchase a copy of the final print.

It's an edition of 30 and if you would like to own one it's available through bandcamp!

ECMW Nomination Update! - March 9th 2013

The album Murder Ballads & Other Love Songs was nominated for "Country Recording of the Year" for the 2013 East Coast Music Awards which are happening this weekend. The country award was given out last night and... well, didn't win an ECMA last night, but did score a free donut from Tim Horton's "Roll Up The Rim", so still headed home a winner! Would like to thank The Divorcees and Andrew Sneddon for accompanying on stage last night. Those guys are awesome players/people and life is good when they're around. Also huge hugs to Laurence Currie and Kelsey Assad who are amazing at everything! Times are good in Halifax this weekend, great people and music all around!
