Listen to Survivor on all streaming platforms!

In the age of the #MeToo movement, this song validates and empowers the diverse stories of survivors of sexual violence. It is being released on International Women’s Day to celebrate the resiliency of those who have spoken out against perpetrators of abuse (IE Harvey Weinstein), those who have not been believed, and those who have yet to share their story. I see you, I hear you, I believe you.

Hello folks, I’m ready to hit the road again this spring. If you can make it, I’d love to see you at one of these shows. Bring a friend and be surrounded by good vibes with warm people.

I think I’m most excited to perform in New York City because I’ll be entering new territory. The shows I’m playing in Ontario are at familiar venues, ones that I’ve had my best shows at.

Hello folks! I know it’s been a while, but some special announcements are coming. The first of which is that I am releasing a new song on March 8th titled Survivor in honour of International Womens Day! If you want to hear the song before it goes live, you can get a free download when you donate to my GoFundMe campaign. Every dollar goes to support my new record, and by helping me now it guarantees you’ll get access to the record before it’s released.

Hello folks!

I started a GoFundMe campaign to help me raise money to record my next record. You can read about it HERE. Also, make sure to include your email when donating so I can send you a download of the album when it is ready for release!

Also, I’ll be offering a pre-order list at my shows, starting at the Cameron House next Thursday! All of your help and support is much appreciated. If you can’t donate right now, just sharing the campaign and my music is so helpful 💞

The Road and the Radio is going to be released December 5th! I joined forces with Claire Hunter to make this song special.

The Song

This summer, after being on tour alone for 12 days, I thought I was untouchable. I felt like I could conquer anything. I drove to Sudbury to perform, and drove home that very same day. I spent over 12 hours in the car by myself, mainly listening to Hobo Jungle Fever Dream by Corin Raymond past the point of madness. I wrote the first few lines of The Road and the Radio when I was at a Muskoka gas station on the way up to Sudbury, and in a couple of weeks the song was complete. During this trip, I took time to reflect on my experiences touring and the loneliness that comes with it. Being away from familiar people and places is exciting, but also tiring.

The Collaboration

Meeting Claire Hunter is a story all in itself! We have many mutual friends, so without meeting her in person I invited her to play a show with me in London. I felt comfortable around her fairly quickly, and when I asked where she grew up, we both discovered she grew up with one of my cousins! That same night, I asked her if she would be interested in singing The Road and the Radio as a duet with me. She was excited to try it out, and everything fell into place.

The first time I taught her the harmonies and instrumental, I was surprised at how quickly we connected. Our voices blended so naturally, and it felt like we were breathing in sync. Nuances in the song were unspoken, working together felt easy. We had only practiced twice before we recorded the song professionally

Recording The Road and the Radio was my best experience in the studio yet! Tyrone Harding from Cultivate Music gave us complete control, providing a low stress environment so we could give the best performance. Claire and I recorded the song live, translating the energy we have together directly into the recorded version. There was a lot of laughter, time for breaks, and we got the golden take! When I first listened to the rough mix, I cried because it exceeded expectations.
