Mercury Lounge

did a solo set on Thursday night at the Mercury Lounge, which was featured by CBC Ottawa as one of the top live music picks in Ottawa for the weekend. What a lovely venue the Mercury Lounge is! A big special thanks to Iswke and DJ Jas Nasty for letting me share the bill with them, and to Stella Bell-Murray for joining me on vocal harmonies for a few songs.  And of course, thanks to everyone that came out!

Remember, you only have a few days left to pre-order our new EP album Ovayok Road through Indiegogo. Although the album release date is August 14, everyone who pre-orders through Indiegogo will receive an advance digital copy two weeks before the public. So make sure you get yours before the campaign closes on July 30!  Also, big thanks to JenEric designs for featuring our campaign in your Recommendation Thursdays!

What a great time today at Winston Square! It was a privilege to be able to take part in this collaborative art installation, where Mailyne Briggs created artwork with the garbage she’s made in the last six months (only one jar!) while I provided musical accompaniment. A huge thanks to the Westboro BIA and everyone who came by and saw us!

If you missed this cool performance, you can hear some of the pieces that I composed for Mailyne’s Zero Waste project and performed at the event here:

Also, we’ve got some exciting news. We’re so stoked to announce that we’ll be performing at NWT Pride in Yellowknife this year, along amazing musicians like the Jerry Cans, Rae Spoon, Austra and Grey Gritt!
