In just a couple of weeks I’ll be heading into the studio in rural Ontario with Andy Magoffin to work on some new recordings! Before I headed over there, I wanted to share a video of one of the songs we’ll be working on (below), as well as let you know about a Montreal show I’m playing TONIGHT as part of Michael Feuerstack’s star-studded band (I even persuaded him to let me play the saxophone). Keep reading for more…
If you made it out to any shows in the last year, chances are you caught an ear-glimpse of a song called Shapes that has become something of a live staple. I’ll be committing it to tape soon, but the wonderful Here On Out sessions recently made a video down in an undisclosed location on St. Denis street in Montreal that can be watched right here.
Michael Feuerstack band show tonight in Montreal!
Unquestionably my favourite thing about moving to Montreal has been the opportunity to get to collaborate regularly with some of my favourite people and musicians, and have the pleasure of getting to know and work with even more wonderful people. Tonight’s gonna be a really special occasion in that regard, where I’ll be playing in the band of one of the best humans and musicians, and a long-time collaborator and friend – Michael Feuerstack. It’s a pretty special lineup for the night, and I’m really looking forward to playing at Casa Del Popolo with some old and new friends in the shape of Pietro Amato (Luyas), Jeremy Gara (Arcade Fire), Peter X and Laurel (Little Scream) Sprengelmeyer. There are still some tickets available, doors are at 9, and there’s more info on the facebook page.
Into the Fall
This is the space where I tease about future dates, without giving away any concrete information. Once I’m done working on the new recordings, I’ll be heading out east across the Atlantic provinces in September sharing the bill with a fantastic band from LA, followed up shortly by another tour across Southern Europe. Can’t say more about either of those things, just yet, but expect some announcements in the coming weeks.
