from our living room to yours

With our time at home we’ve been working on rearranging some of the furniture in our living room; not just to freshen up our space, but also to make a slightly more aesthetically pleasing spot from which to play live shows from home. Because, like many of our friends and fellow musicians, we’ve been hosting a few livestreams, hopefully to keep entertaining folks who are staying safe at home but still want to hear live music, inasmuch as we still can. Here are a few of the shows we’ve done, and a tribute to one of the great songwriters of…    read more.


autumn shows & video

We’re swinging through a few towns this autumn, catching the changing of the colours as we play a bunch of duo shows and one rare full-band show near Toronto! We hope you can join us or help spread the word about our upcoming shows. We’re also excited to share a video we shot in Hamilton as part of the Unicorn Project — it’s a rare cover of “Into The Mystic” captured by the good folks at Soundstill Production. We don’t perform many cover songs, but this one is near and dear to our hearts, and we hope you enjoy it!

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! We’ve played our last show of the year — a wonderful shindig with Oh Susanna! — but we have some good holiday news to share anyway. As you…    read more.

back from tour & in love with autumn

Touring is amazing, but we are glad to be home and ready to have a love affair with autumn. We enjoyed some old-fashioned east coast hospitality on our tour, and we’d like to say a big thank you to all the folks who shared a floor, a meal, a stage, or a sing-along with us along the way! Going on tour is like an extended marathon of good times, and it was fantastic to be able to share those times with such great people. Double kudos go out to our drummer Mike, his wife Eileen, and their 4-month-old daughter Broghan…    read more.
