Happy New Year! : )
It’s hard to believe that yet another year has passed. I will fondly remember 2009 as my year of traveling. Through traveling, I got to experience so many of Canada’s magical spots and met the most beautiful people along the way. 2009 began with a 3 month residency at the Banff Centre, then a one month residency in the Yukon (Dawson City) and a 6 week cross-Canada tour in the ‘Little Prince’ which took me all the way to St. John’s, Newfoundland. 2009 is also the year that I fell in love with Newfoundland and decided to make it my new home. When I look back, it’s hard to believe that all of that happened in 12 months! Makes me wonder what 2010 is going to be like.
So what’s next? 2010 will be the year of settling my roots here in St. John’s. I begin recording It Is What It Is with Don Ellis this month and will be making it an EP rather than a full-length CD. I’m aiming on releasing the EP in the spring with a tour to Ontario (and perhaps beyond) next fall. It all depends on whether the ‘Little Prince’ stays healthy enough for another long trip (fingers are crossed).
And lastly, I am very excited to announce that I have set up a new teaching studio here in downtown St. John’s! If you’re interested in taking flute lessons, looping lessons (Ableton Live) or music theory lessons, email me at: firstname.lastname@example.org
