shows

marching into march

We are heading out to slightly warmer (and then much warmer) climates this coming month! We’re pretty jazzed to be touring in Florida for the first time as part of the Listening Room Festival. If you have friends in the area, please let them know where we will be! Spring seems to bring a cavalcade of new music, and we’re excited for new releases from amazing Canadian songwriters like Rose Cousins and Sarah Harmer! We are also working on new music, but what we’ve got won’t be ready until around about autumn. Keep your eyes peeled!


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!


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! Plans are in the works. Songs for this new album were almost all written about specific…    read more.


hibernation & also some touring: winter!

Happy Holidays! Besides the obvious snow fort construction that we hope will rival the Great Pyramid of Giza, winter is kind of wonderful for hunkering down in a studio and creating some new recordings. That is mainly what we are doing this winter, with a few breaks to poke our heads out and play some shows. We are actually kicking the year off with some full-band shows in Ottawa, Tamworth, and our first full-band show in the United States (in Cooperstown NY!) on Saturday January 21st. Wish us luck! We are also planning to head to Kansas City in February…    read more.


vancouver bound & cd release season

WESTBOUND TRAIN. On Saturday, Laura & I leave for Vancouver, riding the rails for three and a half days while we play some music for the folks and possibly solve a murder. I think that’s how it works… We’ll be playing two shows in Vancouver: Wed May 29 at Cafe Deux Soleils (2096 Commercial Dr, Vancouver) with Sheree Plett and Pitre. Music at 8pm, tickets $5-$10 (sliding scale) at the door. More details here. Thu May 30 at The Main (4210 Main St, Vancouver) Music at 10pm, no cover. More details here.
