I made it back to “Canadia” as they say in Aus. Got to hear all fasten your seat belt instructions in 2 languages again — really missed that.
May plans: Filming a video and then — touring and recording my next studio album.
Doing a few house concerts with Coco Love Alcorn (nominee of 2 East Coast Music Awards this year) who will be singing vocal harmonies and opening up the band shows. She is fab — check her out, www.cocolovealcorn.com. Then taking the whole 7 piece band on a mini tour of AB, and then recording the album right afterwards. Yay!!
At the Edmonton and Calgary shows WE WILL BE RECORDING THE AUDIENCE DURING 2 AUDIENCE PARTICIPATION SONGS and those participating will have the opportunity to put there names down to be included in the album liner notes! I may regret this decision as it may end up I have QUITE long liner notes. But I promise the album artwork will be made from 100% recycled material, so no one need feel bad. Except maybe the graphic designer.
Here are the show details.
