NEW ALBUM HAS ARRIVED!!!!
Very excited about the upcoming release of ‘Family Name’. It’s been a few years in the making, with some hiccups along the way, but well worth the wait!!
The album is available at live shows right now and will be available via mail order and iTunes soon! I will keep you posted.
Check the shows section for upcoming gigs. See you next time …
Please check out my new single called “Caledonia Rain“. The word ‘caledonia’ is an ancient term used for Scotland and this tune is inspired by my Scottish heritage. In fact the picture you see here with the woman and man was taken by my grandmother Isabella McGowan, born outside of Glasgow. Hope you like!!
New album called ‘Family Name’ comes out soon …
As July wraps up soon, it’s been a busy month getting back into the swing of playing live again after being down for the count with a concussion in June. Thanks to those who came out this month to see shows at Hola Cafe Tapas Bar http://hola-experience.com and the Amsterdam Bicycle Club http://www.abclub.ca.

It’s a beautiful heritage building with Thursday night pub nights during the summer season. Check them out here http://www.millerlashhouse.ca. And check the shows section for dates!
New album comes out this fall too. Exciting times …
My new album is being mastered. The artwork is being detailed. I should have copies in my hand shortly. It’s been a heck of a ride getting this project finished. I am thrilled with the results and can’t wait to share the songs with you. The album is called ‘Family Name’ and the album cover is a photograph I found among hundreds of family pictures. It was taken by my grandmother, Isabella Robertson.
Songs on the album include ‘Caledonia Rain’, ‘Where the Peaceful River Flows’, ‘Hanging On’, ‘Hands of Your Family’, ‘Amaya’ and ‘Born to Get Lost’. You can check the music page for the soundcloud link to hear a preview!!!!!!
Also, I am excited to share the news about an upcoming residency at the Amsterdam Bicycle Club. I will be playing every 3rd Sunday of each month starting June 21st.
A few other shows are coming up, including Thursday May 28th at Habits GastroPub. Check the shows section for more.
