If my sites are looking a little quiet lately it's not because I've gone off the grid. Well, maybe I have a little. I've been a bit of a hermit lately because I've been writing and working on a new album since September. Aside from some family time over the holidays (and 2 rounds of the flu), it's been pretty much non-stop in the studio. Some sessions have been in Canada, tucked in the mountains. Some in LA, where the sun and rain have been constantly at war. Others in Nashville - a town that I once called home but each time I go back she's new stranger.
I've slept on one of those blow up mattresses for the better part of the past 5 months. Lived out of a few suitcases. Moved into my own place in Toronto only to find out I'd be moving out a month later because there was an opportunity in another city. Walked away from love because the the timing seemed wrong even if everything else seemed right. I've spent more money on Ubers, rental cars and parking tickets than I can stomach. Stayed up until 4 AM talking and laughing about life and craziness and dreams with friends. And a lot of this has been written down in these songs. I'd venture to say it's my best work yet, because I truly feel that way. But in some ways that's more your call to make than mine. : )
Anyway, I guess I just wanted to take a minute to say I'm still here. And I can't get this new music...these new stories...to you fast enough. Thanks for sticking with me. Thanks for telling your friends about the music. Thanks for the notes, the tweets, the insta comments. This dream is one I can't do without you guys and I wouldn't want to do it without you anyway.
