Had a fantastic time playing at Lucky Bar in Victoria last week with Snoqualmie and Wand. There was an astounding amount of photographers in the room and I wanted to give them a each a shout out and share some of their work.

Thanks to all of you.  For those interested in seeing some of the shots from the night, check out the links beside the names.

For those of you living on Vancouver Island, I’ll be coming for one night to play a show in Victoria at Lucky Bar on Tuesday January 29th. Sharing the stage with me will be two great local acts Snoqualmie and Wand.

Advance tickets are available for $10 online at www.brownpapertickets.com or at Ditch Records or at the door for $13.

It’s not so often that I cross the straight to come see my island friends so if you can, hope you can make it out.

String Fling at the Rio December 13th

 

Friends,

I’m quite excited to be playing a show with the Four on the Floor string quartet and a host of Vancouver talents in one of my favourite venues. On December 13th Four on the Floor is putting on “String Fling” a very classy showcase where they will be supporting 5 absolutely stellar Vancouver acts including Data Romance, Shaun Verreault and Peak Performance finalists the Gay Nineties, Ali Milner and myself.

Tickets are $15 in advance at Red Cat Records, Zulu and online at www.hipcitymusic.ca. That’s a whole $5 off the door value so get them before they’re gone.

If you don’t remember Four on the Floor, perhaps this little video will remind you of their virtuosity.

iPod Pharmacy- Help Music Therapy

Let me ask you a question. Do you have an old iPod or mp3 player at home that still works that you don’t use anymore because you got a new one? If so, I strongly encourage you to donate the old one to the Music Heals iPod Pharmacy. As you’ll see in the video below, iPods are an incredible therapeutic tool used every where from old folks homes to children’s hospitals.

I’ve teamed up with Music Heals in an effort to help Music Therapy Programs. If you donate a used but still functioning iPod, you’ll be entered to win a Free House Concert from myself.

If you’d like to help out please send your used but functioning mp3 player to:

“Attn: iPod Pharmacy”
Suite 400 – 1788 W. 5th Ave.,
Vancouver, B.C. V6J 1P2

Remember to include your name and contact information so we can get ahold of you when you win the contest.

Stressed/Blessed – Who the F is Fricot?

For my next episode of Who the F is Fricot I had to change up the scheme a little bit. I’d been feeling quite overwhelmed by everything in my life at the moment: quite stressed. When I stopped to think about it, everything I was stressing and worrying about was truly a blessing. Yes there was piles of work to be done, but I realized that I should be thankful because all of my tasks were actually great opportunities. Then all of a sudden, out this song came. It’s still in it’s infancy, and needs a fair amount of tinkering and reforming, but I wanted to share it with you now.

It’s called Stressed/Blessed
