NEW co-write with The Eastern Belles “Only In The Darkest Night”

NEW co-writes with The Small Glories

The Small GloriesLast spring I got together with The Small Glories from Manitoba (JD Edwards & Cara Luft) to write songs for the first annual “Canadian Song Challenge” here in PEI. I was delighted to co-write two NEW songs with these fine folks and even more delighted when The Small Glories recorded those songs for their album teaser EP this Summer. Their brand new album comes out in the new year. Have a listen to our co-writes below…

New video & project – The Eastern Belles

I have been working on an EXCITING new project with gal pals and fellow PEI award-winning songwriters Meaghan Blanchard & Catherine MacLellan (a.k.aThe Eastern Belles). We had the pleasure of playing in Toronto at the Ontario Celebration Zone for the Pan Am Games in July. We were chosen to represent PEI which was quite an honour. This past winter,  Meaghan, Catherine and I got together to do some writing and we were so delighted with that we came up with we decided to keep doing it. Here’s our first co-write called “Bend A Little” – a song about relationships and learning to give a little and take little.

New Single “In The Bright Tomorrow” (co-written with David Francey)

I’m excited to share this new song with you that I wrote with David Francey called “In The Bright Tomorrow”. David and I both wanted to write an upbeat, fun song and something a little different from what we each normally write.  It’s a new “old country” song and an homage to the American folk pioneers, The Carter Family! Check it out the video above that we recorded completely on our iPhones…cool eh?

Birthday Blizzard!!!

So the good weather gods have sent me a beautiful blizzard on my 32nd birthday. As my honey says, “I’m sure you did come into this world like a storm”…haha! Thank-you all for the already overwhelming amount of blizzard birthday wishes. On my birthday, I would also like to share a special song with you that I wrote about my mom who exactly 32 years ago today was at the Pictou County hospital pacing the floors in hopes that I would arrive sooner then later. She is no longer with us, but her love and spirit live on…
