Hey folks, the long awaited return of my monthly concert series for musicians that play all by their lonesome has arrived. Due to L'Escalier closing we will be trying out a new venue called La Petite Marche (5035 Saint-Denis). The first event will be on November 23rd at 10pm and my guest will be the wonderful Lea Keeley.
I will also be returning to my monthly residency at Grumpy's on November 27th at 10pm. We have moved it to the last Saturday of every month. Cheers!
I was in studio last week recording my first full-length solo album. We recorded 4 takes of all 13 songs in the first day and then spent the next two days re-recording songs and getting some more takes in with various different gauges of strings (I use many different tunings on the record). The studio was Roger Cloutier's beautiful Productions Va-Nu-Pieds and I had a wonderful time working there with the great Pi Sailin Cutler putting in graveyard shifts on the sound. We borrowed some very nice microphones from Gaetan Pillon, mics that used to be at Montreal's storied studio Victor. The record should be done some time around February or March. More on this soon!
This winter I recorded a song in Quebec city in the shed of fellow musician Phil Gerg. I was on a solo tour with Santosh Lalonde and we had a ball recording this despite the fact that some of the heaters weren't functioning.
This song is in the key of wishful thinking. Enjoy!
