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!
This month is taking Ladies Of The Canyon to all sorts of adventures through Quebec and me and Cash(my 2 year old son) will be travelling with them for it all. Me: juggling many duties in the air as tour manager, and him; well. . . . taking care of all those things he takes care of:)
We will be going to Rimouski, Carleton, Matane, Port Cartier, Forestville, and Sorel.
At the end of the month we will be heading back to Toronto, ON. That alone will be a whole other journal entry!
Thanks for reading.
My first blog
My WordPress program said I should title this first blog “hello world”. A bit presumptuous considering the whole world isn’t paying attention. well; not yet. Heh heh.
No; this is not a “hello world” blog. All I am doing with this is to talk about those things I’m experiencing that I find are fairly unique and not many people hear about.
Such as being a musician/father/tour manager on the road with his 2 1/2 year old son.
This will most likely be a very predominant subject in my blogs. Perhaps I will be able to shed some light on a few myths that people may have regarding musicians lives(and the traditional role fathers used to have in their children’s lives).
I also plan to write about what it means to be a musician in Montreal and canada especially within this ever changing industry. I believe it’s a very promising and bright future. It’s just one that needs creativity and ingenuity.
So yeah; there is a whole lot to talk about. Good thing I like to talk eh?
