Wolfville (tomorrow) to Upper Canada

Hello peoples,

This missive shall be brief.  I wanted to let you know about some Canadian shows coming up (starting tomorrow in Wolfville) and running into April, and to give a forewarning to expect a long-overdue announcement relating to the new album in just a couple of weeks!  Oh, and finally I should let you know that a good friend will be the special guest on Q on CBC Radio tomorrow morning!  More on all of this below…

Wolfville Acadia Chapel Show Tomorrow Night

In spite of living in the vicinity for a decade, I’ve yet to have the pleasure of playing in Wolfville.  Thanks to Axe Radio the time has finally come with a very special last-minute show happening tomorrow, Friday 27th March at the beautiful Acadia Chapel.  The show starts at 8pm, and $8 will get you in the door and some pew space.

Friday 27th March
Wolfville, Acadia Chapel

Upper Canada Shows in April

After way too long a wait (going on two years?!?!) I’ll be heading back up to Quebec and Ontario to play as part of the Forward Music Revue alongside label chums Gianna Lauren, Find the Others and (in Ottawa only) Michael Feuerstack.  For the Montreal and Toronto shows I’ll be accompanied by Leif Vollebekk, Gregory Burton, as well as Stefan Schneider and Pietro Amato from the Luyas and Bell Orchestre.  Needless to say, it will probs be a fun time…

April 15 – Toronto, ON: Burdock, 1184 Bloor St. West // Tickets (presented by Burdock)
April 16 – Montreal, PQ: Casa Del Popolo // Tickets/Billets (presented by Passovah)
April 17 – Ottawa, ON: St. Alban’s Church w/ Michael Feuerstack // Tickets (presented by Arboretum Festival)
April 18 – Québec City, PQ: l’AgitéE // Tickets/Billets (presented by District7 Prod.)

PBS Producer and Collaborator Michael Feuerstack on CBC Radio Q tomorrow morning!

Michael Feuerstack (better known to many as Snailhouse) produced and played on the eponymous Paper Beat Scissors album.  He recently released the magnificent album the Forgettable Truth and he’ll be playing some tracks from that album and putting his words in your ears tomorrow morning on Q from 10am in Canada (10.30 in Newfoundland).  For those overseas, or who can’t listen at the time there are many other opportunities to listen.

Quebec and Ontario shows this April!

I can’t believe it’s been almost 2 years since I played in the wilds of Upper Canada. Next month will change all that with 4 shows in Quebec and Ontario as part of the Forward Music Revue, which will feature labelmates Gianna Lauren and (new addition), Find the Others.  Montreal and Toronto shows will feature an all-star band (watch this space).  The Ottawa show, presented by Arboretum Festival, taking place at the beautiful St. Alban’s Church will also feature PBS producer and Canadian indie legend Michael Feuerstack

Fantasies and Theremins and Violins

A belated happy new year!

So, I thought I was going to be having a quiet January, but some rumbles have grown into plans and I’m playing four (very different) shows across the Maritimes this weekend: opening for old mr. “Final Fantasy” himself – Owen Pallett, playing the theremin for 2 dance performances and performing arrangements of PBS tunes with a symphony orchestra!

finished albums and orchestras

It’s been a good long while since you’ve heard from me, and my apologies for that. There’s been good reason, though – since the end of the European tour we’ve been blasting away at the new album, and I’m beyond delighted to let you know that we finished the mastering on Tuesday, so it’s officially finished! I can’t confirm a release date, just yet, other than “some time in 2015″, but we’ll be squeaking out a single or two in between now and then, so keep your collective ear to the ground!

New Tour Dates!

So the tour keeps on trucking. It’s been an incredible time so far, and I’m excited to announce there’ve been new shows added in Paris, London, Münster (TONIGHT with INVSN – project of Refused lead singer Dennis Lyxzên) and more. The Berlin show has an early curfew (10pm), so make sure you’re down there by 8 so you’re not left crying in your (admittedly tasty) beer. Hamburg and Augsburg shows are both Bedroom Disco shows with secret venues, and you’ll need to send a message to the organizers to be sure to get an invite (emails are in the tourdates below)

Paper Beat Scissors Solo Euro Tour Continued…
