NEW OFFICIAL VIDEO “This Great Compromise”!
Posted on September 20th, 2013
I’m REALLY excited to present to you my OFFICIAL video for “This Great Compromise”. This song is special to me because it encompasses the feeling of loneliness when living apart from you loved one(s) due to economic reasons, a reality we all know too well here in Atlantic Canada. Please feel free to pass on…
I’m so excited and proud to release my sophmore album This Great Compromise into the world. It was produced by my very favourite songwriter in the ENTIRE world, three-time JUNO Award winner David Francey. His unparalleled musical sensibilities and passion for this project has been inspiring and I can’t think of a better fella to have helped me find a sonic home for these songs.
I was blessed to have been supported by some of the most gifted musicians in the country including Chris Coole, Mark Westberg, New Country Rehab fiddler John Showman and celebrated Maritime multi-instrumentalist Darren McMullen. Recording wizard, Ken Friesen, at Signal Path Studios engineered, mixed and mastered the newby.
Thanks for stopping by. Feel free to look around and check out all the shiny NEW updates.
P.S – A big THANKS to Mat Dunlap for the beeeeautiful new site. I looks INCREDIBLE!

I’ve been playing six nights a week at The Mack Theatre in Ch’town in a fantastic show called “Come All Ye”. I know the name is kinda wierd, however, it’s one of the most exciting projects i have ever done. It’s all about PEI and what makes this little province so darn special. Myself, Caroline Bernard, Mark Haines, John Connolly, Chas Guay and Patrick Ledwell are featured through-out singing songs, telling stories and having just about the most amount of fun possible onstage. I don’t want to give away too much…you’ll just have to come have a peek for yourself. It runs until August 27th and you can buy tickets here. I am getting ready for a little tour of Ontario for the fall and lots of other exciting things. Stay tuned for updates…
