After a long year of working on 8 of our favourite songs, The Folk Road Show is very happy to announce that our sophomore album is finally ready for you to drink in, devour or bathe in 😉

GOLD is available on all of your common streaming sites, though we like to recommend you download it from our bandcamp as that is the method that supports us the most. I’ve listed links below to find the album

Covers For the Cause – @musicheals_ca

So I’ve partnered with a Music Heals, a foundation I worked with a couple years ago on the iPod Pharmacy. Music Heals works to support music therapists and music therapy programs all across Canada.

This summer they’ve accumulated a long list of artists who are all taking requests to play cover songs for donations to the foundation. I set my minimum for a cover song request at $75, my goal at $500 and am pleased to say that I’ve already raised over $600. Still a few weeks to take more requests so if you want me to play a certain song and are into giving to a great cause while you do it, please donate and make your request at my #coversforthecause page:

Below are the first two videos I’ve done for June and Chanti.
