secretly even though the album is done, and secretly even though it was supposed to come out this SPRING, SPRING actually EQUALS OCTOBER! we are living in an alternate universe. i promise it will be worth it. we are making something very special in the mean time + the special thing will come out with the record too.
last week, my dear friends andrea and britt and i got up early and went out to the leslie spit for a photo shoot. andrea took the pictures, britt did my make-up, and the lovely samantha stephens made my cape/poncho/wings. i tried to be a good model and not look awkward and cold. all photos by the one and only andrea de keijzer! http://andreadekeijzer.com/
WATCH OUT NORTHERN B.C.
DECEMBER 21ST AT THE OLD CHURCH DECEMBER 23RD AT THE HILLTOP. ALL BALLADS. SOME REAL GOOD ONES TOO.
THE BALLADS REMIXED
so, i decided it would be a good idea to cut up all the ballads (and some other slow songs too) for our show on DECEMBER 2ND at the HORSESHOE. BALLADS REMIXED features MARY WOOD, TYLER BELLUZ, SOPHIE TRAUB, TONY WALLACE, CORY LATKOVICH, & LISA CONWAY.
muskox = awesome.
very talented people that i love are making wonderful things to prepare for the album’s release into the world. specifically, a video for each song (that’s six!), wings for a photo shoot, as well as the album art.
1. the album is done. 2. see ol’ L CON at the TRANZAC on SEPT 14TH. we’re opening for MUSKOX - they are releasing their wonderful album.

1. i worked on an audio driving tour iphone/ipad app set in mississauga in 2030 with these guys (http://departmentofunusualcertainties.wordpress.com/) and learned lots about field recording and voice actors and mississauga itself. 2. i died of heatstroke and came back to life via an extensive ice cream routine. 3. i accidentally enrolled in a harmony class at the royal conservatory of music....
we are done mixing. cross your fingers. (my head hurts)
the NEWS, the NEWS
1. i am going in to the studio next week to mix for four days in a row. and then it will hopefully be finished. forever. 2. two upcoming shows: - FRIDAY (this one) JUNE 10TH at the FREEDOM CLOTHING COLLECTIVE at BLOOR & OSSINGTON. 9.30 p.m. string duo & clarinet & voice. magical. - on SUNDAY JUNE 26TH i will be playing with MORNING BELL (caylie staples) at the HOLY OAK! 10 p.m....
