First off – thanks to everyone who came out to the shows in Atlantic Canada earlier this month. The whole trip was a real treat, and I am now much better at axe throwing and blueberry picking than I used to be. Extra special thanks to Snowblink (who put out this really sweet/clever/creepy video) and Forward Music Group for putting everything together. I’m about to embark on a special exploratory musical adventure in the Rocky Mountains on Sunday and have some Western Canadian shows coming up after that, BUT FIRST, I’ll be playing with some friends and trying out some new instrumental material in the next couple of days at Pop Montreal.
Pop Montreal Shows
My ambient instrumental alias Tim Crabtree (confusing, I know) will be playing an improvised electric guitar set at Empire Exchange tomorrow at 3pm. It’s a free show, come down early and fall asleep with me! During this year’s festival I’ll also be accompanying a fantastic artist new to the scene in Montreal, Camille Delean – her first show is sold out, the second is on a first come, first served basis so again, get down early! Please take extra note of the event times, as some of these are afternoon shows, and they will all start right on time.

Banff Centre Residency
Like the true gnome that I am I’ll be retreating into the mountains this Sunday for a month of exploration. I’ve been selected for a residency at the incredible Banff Centre for the Arts in the Albertan Rockies. There are quite a few things on the menu for me – finishing the new album, working on orchestrations and some sad dance music, but the place is a hive for amazing creative people, and I’m excited to see what collaborations will come about in my time there.
I’m hugely grateful and excited for this opportunity, and cannot wait to get started. On that note, I should probably go and pack,
