As I write this, I am sitting on the floor of my new apartment in Boston. That's right - back for year two! After an amazing summer working at a camp for special needs children, songwriting and soaking up the sun I'm ready to jump head first into my third semester at Berklee College of Music. I just wanted to update the masses on a couple new and exciting things!
First of all I would like to address your attention to the fact that my hometown, Salt Spring Island, hosted its very first music festival on August 8-9th 2015! I was extremely happy to be asked to play on the main stage with my newly formed band. The entire festival was incredible - the venue was full of food and garlic vendors, smiling faces and amazing musicians sharing their craft. I have no doubt that this festival will continue to take place every year and lift the spirits of all those who attend and perform.
Stay tuned - footage from my performance will be released very soon and I will attach some photos from the festival below. For more information on the Salt Spring Garlic & Music Festival click on this link: http://saltspringgarlicfestival.com/
Second of all, I just want to clarify that by saying this I am not making any promises... but being back in Beantown means music, music, music! My new school year's resolution is this - to record a new album. That's right folks, after tooooooo long I am buckling down and releasing some tunes! The details have not yet been figured out and the process has yet to begin, but be prepared! How could I possibly study songwriting without sharing my creations with you?
This year brings a new and exciting chapter in my life. Thank you again to everyone that has helped me to come back and live my dream in Boston.
