Thanks to MusicNL for the 4 MusicNL Award nominations! I’ve been nominated for “Female Artist of the Year”, “Instrumental Recording of the Year”, “Educator of the Year” and “Side Musician of the Year”. I’m really blown away by this. Thank you to my Gemeinhardt Musical Instruments and MusicNL families who support what I do and help me shine.
Woke up to something super cool this morning. This is a dream come true for me! I collaborated with #Ableton Live Certified Trainer, AfroDJMac and he created a sound sample pack of my flute sounds for Ableton Live. There are lots of really cool sounds in this but you need Ableton 10 to use it. Check out the video and share the link with your Ableton friends. So neat! https://youtu.be/mjRBZo2t_1w
Home sweet home in St. John’s after driving 6400 km. From St. John’s to Fredericton to Saint John to Evandale to Sussex to Bathurst to Lameque Island to Cheticamp Island to Stephenville to Burgeo and the long drive home. 2 awesome mechanics for the flat tire and cranky muffler, so many beautiful sunsets, inspiring music, my lovely Acadian family, delicious food and so much more. To top it all off? Arriving at home to discover a MusicNL nomination for Instrumental Recording of the Year for SUNSET SUNRISE! It feels good to be home with this warm heart and so many wonderful memories. To all of you who I was so fortunate to spend time with on the road, THANK YOU. Sending a special thanks to Floodstock and Third Shift – Art Works After Dark in Saint John for such amazing performing experiences. I can’t wait to tour through New Brunswick again.
FROM THE RIVER TO THE OCEAN won ECMA Electronic Recording of the Year! My heart is filled to the brim. I head back home to St. John’s today, celebrating this victory that only happens from a wonderful team of people recognizing my vision and supporting me every step of the way!
I am pleased to announce an East Coast Music Association (ECMA) award nomination for my original soundtrack, FROM THE RIVER TO THE OCEAN in Electronic Recording of the Year!!! What a huge honour. I really couldn’t have created this soundtrack without inspiration and support from the Cucalorus Film Festival, MusicNL and the talent of some pretty amazing musicians and engineers: Craig Follett, Brent Beshara, Brad Weber, Justin Merdsoy and Krisjan Leslie. See you in Saint John, New Brunswick for ECMA Week!
