Since COVID-19 hit, I’ve been wondering if I would ever find an opportunity to perform the Canadian Premiere of my newest audio-visual project, DON’T LET ME FALL TOO FAR in a real theatre. The answer is YES! I will be performing this precious project at the Rotary Arts Centre as we stream it live for CB Nuit. CB Nuit will be a digital arts festival this year and is happening from September 18 – 20, 2020. I’ll also be giving my first interactive artist talk, FEEL THE FEAR AND DO IT ANYWAY. Really looking forward to sharing stories about my career and helping inspire others to aim for their biggest dreams – no matter what the obstacle. More details coming soon.
I’ve got some really exciting and encouraging news to share! A week from now, I’ll be performing in an actual live performance venue and one of my favourites to boot!!!
St. John’s International Women’s Film Festival
I’ll be showcasing at the East Coast Music Awards on the Electronic Music Stage. Mark down Thurs April 30 from 10:55pm – 11:25 at Beer Market in St. John’s, NL. There will be loads of flute loops, electronics and film!
DON’T LET ME FALL TOO FAR has been nominated for East Coast Music Award, Electronic Recording of the Year! Lots of folks to thank here so here it goes!
GREAT NEWS! I’ve been invited to showcase in Dallas, Texas for the 48th Annual The National Flute Association Convention. This is the largest convention for flutists in the world and such a HUGE honour to be a part of! Dallas will be buzzing with thousands of flutists from all over! The convention will celebrate the many diverse ways that flutists forge distinct paths in our community.

It’s been an exciting time with the highly-anticipated album release of SIGHT by Toronto’s Pick A Piper. Caribou musician, Brad Weber invited me to record flute for his Pick a Piper track, “Fragments”. I sent him my flute takes with a twist. I recorded it for effected alto flute and focused on the percussive sounds I could create from the instrument. Looks like this great track is getting lots of love all over the world, including by the fine folks at Exclaim and BBC Radio 6 Music‘s 6 Music Recommends w/ Tom Ravenscroft. Right on Pick A Piper aka Brad Weber. Digging that the Ali Ryerson Gemeinhardt Musical Instruments alto flute is getting sexy spins around the world.
