ECMA Nomination for SUNSET SUNRISE

Say what?!!! SUNSET SUNRISE got nominated for an East Coast Music Association (ECMA) award for Electronic Recording of the Year!!! Who would have thought that a recording we created with so much love for our dearly departed loved ones, Graham Howcroft and Ryan Parke would be celebrated like this. What a huge honour it is to be nominated for this award.  We took inspiration from the St. John’s sunrises/sunsets last February for the RPM Challenge. Much of the musical inspiration came from early Kraftwerk and the beautiful effected flute of Paul Horn.   Sending a great big hug and a deep bow of gratitude to my musical partners, Kim Henninger and Shawn Parke read more

New Brunswick Tour / MusicNL Award Nomination

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.

SUNSET SUNRISE

It seems super fitting that I would watch this sunrise of Signal Hill as I began producing/composing/recording a new album as part of the RPM Challenge. What’s the RPM Challenge you ask? It’s a challenge to write and record an entire album of original music within the shortest month of the year.
