In Flight Medley with Leighton Bain

While playing shows in Southern Ontario this weekend, I was reunited with an old soul-brother of mine Leighton Bain. Leighton and I used to tour around playing shows together when I was still in my old band the Painted Birds. When the band broke up Leighton and I remained friends and have always been huge supporters of each other’s work.

Having some free time outside of our gigs in Chatham and Windsor we figured we should shoot some kind of video together. After going through a myriad of songs we came up with a little medley of songs about flight. You’ll likely recognize the first and last one. The middle one happens to be the title track off of Leighton’s latest record “Planes”. I’ve posted the video for that song below.



Train Bound for Toronto Today!

viatrainWell today is the big day that my adventure to Ontario via train begins. I have some friends who have done this before but I still don’t really know what to expect. To travel all that distance for three I just have to offer up my musical skills for 3 x 45 minute sets a day. I’m not allowed to announce that I’m selling CD’s but I AM allowed to sell them.

I’m hoping that there will be internet on the train so I can keep you updated as I go. If you don’t already you can follow me on Instagram, Facebook and twitter for more current updates.

I’ll be stopping off in Winnipeg this weekend and then continuing on to Toronto to play several shows in the area. Here is the list of upcoming shows. Hope to see you out!

In the years that i toured with the Painted Birds a visit to Southern Ontario would almost always include a stop in to visit our good friend Leighton Bain. Bain is a fellow musician from an extremely talented community of songwriters from Windsor, Ontario. I would highly recommend checking out his new single and the rest of his EP, “Oh Alaska”.
