in city & country

happy holidays

Old Man Winter! Some people love the winter, and some people are normal. Uh, more seriously, I’m very happy that some folks enjoy the season even if it’s not my cup of tea (although it’s a time of year when I drink many cups of tea!). I hope that wherever you fall on the spectrum of winter enjoyment that you are finding your own space to do what feels good for you!

finishing the new album, listening to some old albums

We traveled back to Montreal recently to complete the final mix session for our new album — “in city & country”. We’ve been working at the Hotel2Tango studio with producer Howard Bilerman and it has been an exciting process although, like every construction project in history, it has taken longer than we thought. Hopefully the extra effort has been worth it! We’re looking forward to releasing the album this coming spring and playing shows around the countryside, some of which will be full-band shows!
