Welcome to the new year everyone, let’s hope it’s a good one for one and all. If you are unfortunate enough to be hunkered down in the deep freeze covering most of North America, don't worry, I have heard that help is on the way. My sources in Australia tell me that the sun is still up in the sky and is slowly making its way to our side of the planet (yes, I'm advocating a return to the Ptolemaic view of the universe, it’s a new year’s resolution of mine). Have I told you that I hate the cold…? Indeed I do.
A few things of note…we are back on the road at the end of February. The first leg of 2014 starts at the end of February and brings us to the eastern states, where we hope to help with the thaw. There will be another leg in April (not quite sure where this one will bring us just yet) and then another in June (during which it looks like we'll be getting down to the Southern California region). For all touring details please keep an eye on the Tour page.
If you haven't had a chance to check out The Kennedy Suite cd please do so. It's a collaborative effort that we have been working on for a few years now and we are very proud of it. In the words of Sun Media it’s “Ambitious, artful and just plain awesome”. It also made the “Best of 2013” lists in The Globe and Mail, The National Post, Sun Media and a whole bunch of other places.
A couple of Latent releases also made some end of year lists. Lee Harvey Osmonds “The Folk Sinner” was number 3 at CKUA for the year and made the Top 20 on a couple of Ear Shots national radio charts as did The Good Family Album. Please check these out if you haven't yet had a chance: if you are in to what we do, you will find a lot to like in these albums.
Keep an eye on this space…we'll be adding info as we build the tour and as we make our way towards our next recording project. Stay warm and stay safe.
