I’m really excited about my new single, Play On! I finally got a chance to collaborate with Slakah the Beatchild, after doing the flute on his album “Slakadeliqs: The Other Side of Tomorrow” (which is definitely one to check out as it was nearly shortlisted for the Polaris Prize.) If you’re not Canadian you may not know that Polaris is a not-for-profit organization that honours, celebrates and rewards creativity and diversity in Canadian recorded music.
I will be getting to work on the official music video soon. We’re just waiting for some equipment we have on order. It is going to be unique to say the least.
Speaking of videos, there area a couple of new episodes in my SoulScape series. I have always been interested in the creative process of music so I am doing this series to let you in on mine. Check out Episode 10, and Episode 11.
If you’re in Toronto definitely try to catch me with my full band at the Scotiabank 10-miler or 5k Run on August 12th, 9am to 11am. We’ll be performing outside in the Distillery, and promise to wake you up gently like a coffee, not like the condo construction they are doing outside my window.
My nieces are down for the week, and I caught the four year old with my hat and earphones on listening to Play On on the iPad.
