The last few weeks have been crazy. In a good way. I’ve gotten amazing opportunities through Honey Jam including the concert, mentorship cafe, workshops and more. Also, I got the opportunity to have an interview on What She Said Talk Radio which will air TOMORROW NIGHT @ 10:50pm on Jewel 88.5 Toronto! You can also live stream the show HERE if you can’t get the station. In the interview I speak about Honey Jam of course, my band, as well as I play my tune “Just to Have You With Me”! It was a great experience and following the radio show in the coming weeks I will have the full video to share with you guys! I have always loved doing radio interviews, in fact – it’s one of my favourite parts about being a musician! It is such a great way to reach people that may not have heard you before – as well as it’s a great way to get experience for the future. As my career moves on I know radio interviews will become more prominent in my life and it is always important to be comfortable behind that mic!
I have also been planning my EP with YogiDaProducer! We had a great skype meeting the other day and spoke about the release date, the sound I’m looking for, and we planned our first official writing/recording session for next week! I am so excited to present you all with this project. It is truly going to be the most beautiful piece of art I have ever created so far. Every night I write ideas down. I am practically living within this EP right now. I need this to be amazing and I will not stop until its magical.
Along with that, I will be playing a gig here in St. Catharines next friday at Mahtay Cafe! I had such a great time there back in July, as well as I got the opportunity to meet and play with Flynn & Ferrie – A Scottish trio on the end of a Canada-wide tour! They were so kind and talented and they actually ended up staying overnight at my home. Stay tuned in the coming months for a blog post featuring an interview with Flynn & Ferrie! They had some great experiences on their tour and I’m super excited I got to sit down with them and get some tips for other musicians, including myself, who are looking to go on tour! I also got the opportunity to have an interview with Spirit of The Wildfire from Nova Scotia who were stopping by for their tour a few weeks ago, which will be coming in the coming months as well! They were in the middle of their tour when they were in St. Catharines playing with me – so it’ll be interesting to compare the two perspectives of tours between Flynn & Ferrie and Spirit of The Wildfire!
You also may have noticed that I’ve been using the same photo for my blog cover and most of my promo lately! This photo is from a shoot I did back in Halifax with Sarah Davison. The shots are timeless and I just can’t get away from them! They were actually taken in front of a cherry blossom tree in front of Mt. St. Vincent University! You’d never know that was the location, as well as someday we do hope to re-create this photoshoot.
I will be working with some writers in the coming weeks to get my songwriting to the next level, as well as currently I am immersing myself in every style of music to get the best idea of what exact sound I want for the EP. Stay tuned for updates in the coming weeks on shows, the EP, as well as anything else that’s happening with me! It’s all up from here, folks!
I’ve also come up with a logo. Check it out below!
