The Art of Drunk Dialling

I just had a brief stint of shows on Vancouver Island accompanied by my good friend Will. While there I decided this was the perfect occasion to get some work done. “Work” being the operative word when it came to drinking a bit too much and calling pledgers who had ordered a drunk-dial.

Unfortunately for us we didn’t manage to reach any of the pledgers directly. We did have some great conversations with their voice mail mind you. We also managed to get some video evidence of our efforts. To witness the tomfoolery for yourself, please check out my latest video update.


PS we also decided that with 15 days left to make our campaign goal it was a good opportunity to put 3 more drunk-dials up for grabs because they were so popular. Get ‘em while they’re hot!


My New Album + PledgeMusic Campaign


Hello Friends,

I am very excited to announce the release of my new album “Sweet Little Fantasy” on June 17th of this spring. With the album I’m offering a mountain of other goodies and treats via my Pledge Page that you can visit here.

I’m offering everything from house concerts, to postcards, to disposable cameras from the road so please stop by and pre-order your “Sweet Little Fantasy“.

P.S. only 2 drunk dials left 😉



CBC Searchlight Contest – Cast Your Vote

I feel like I’ve waited long enough since I was involved in any kind of internet contest in which I had to harass you all for votes. Some may argue that never would be too soon. I empathize with you.

That being said, I’ve entered “Our last song” in the CBC Searchlight Contest and would love your support. Lots of great Canadian talent. Help out a developing artist by casting your vote. Success in this contest would be a huge leg up for anybody.

To cast your vote for my song click this link and find the tab that says “Vote for this artist”:


Music Therapy Month is Here!

Music Therapy Month is March and it is here! Music Heals partnered with Blenz as an official iPod Pharmacy depot in British Columbia. For every iPod donation you make you’ll receive a free $5 gift card.

In Toronto we partnered with Vortex Records and Twelfth Fret Guitar Shop. The online zine Toronto is Awesome helped out by letting me post a guest blog on the topic of Music Therapy Month and the iPod Pharmacy. If you’d like to read or share it you can find it here.

Please lend a hand by helping us spread the word about music therapy month, the iPod Pharmacy and Music
