So the paperwork is done, just a few things left to get sorted, and then I hit the road with Ladies Of The Canyon again.
This will be the last big tour of the year with jasmines band and then things will mellow out as far as LOTC goes.
I do however have some great things coming up in the late summer and fall. I am doing a great little session at Bank Studios in Verdun for a very talented songwriter by the name of Jamey Barron. It is a Crazy Horse/Orbison vibe that should prove to be a really fun session.
I am also starting rehearsals for a great pop band by the name of Exit 451. We are looking at some great possibilities including heading down to NYC for a week. Either way there will be some great shows coming up with them.
I have a Satori show in September and I should be booking The Marshalls as the demo will be finished very soon.
Stay tuned as well for more Jimmyriggers shows as well as we have a great fall lined up for us!
Thanks for reading everyone!
I am realizing more and more how hard it is to keep up with blogging.
It’s been almost 2 weeks since The Junos and I haven’t even written about it.
April was supposed to be quiet with lots of downtime but I find myself
just as busy as I always am.
My friend Geoff says I should have a bunch of blogs in reserve. Always
staying ahead of the game. I should have planned this out better.
Well; The Junos were fun. Lots of elbow rubbing with stars, riding
around in vans, cool shows(Hugh’s Room and the Dakota Tavern), great
hotel rooms, whiskey, sushi, plus I got to wear my black biker boots
and my Frys!
Here are a few sample pictures of the weekend.
Now here we are coming up to the 2nd week of April. I have a small
holdout of snow in my backyard that refuses to go away, I still need a
sweater, my scarf remains a permanent fixture on my neck, but the
forecast calls for double digits on Monday.
Wow. Double digits above zero. How great is that?
So even though I am living in the present; I look to the future. I
have some great shows in town coming up. The Dirty Grants tomorrow and
Saturday, Satori on the 16th, and I’m heading to Ottawa with Laurel
Jackson and The Attractives on the 23rd. Next month takes me and Cash
across the country with Ladies Of The Canyon and 2011 Juno award
winner Old Man Ludecke. We’re packing up and hitting the road. All
the way to my home town of Sooke, BC.
Hopefully I can keep up with this whole blogging consistently idea.
We will see won’t we
