A Castle In Koblenz, Germany!
This July, we debut at the Mittelrhein Musik Festival in Koblenz, Germany! We perform as part of their series, “Soul & Jazz at the Castle“, a stunning UNESCO world heritage site. Special thanks to Canada Council for the Arts and their support of this opportunity.
Back In The Studio!
Exciting news: Over the coming months we are back in the studio to make a new album! Inspired by my dear friend, Wendy Nelles (who passed away last summer) and stories of family, faith and overcoming, it’s a project of the heart and soul. I’m super excited to share the new music with you!! Join me on Facebook, instagram and twitter to track with the journey in real time. I’ve also just updated my YouTube page, if you want to take a little gander…
This Month’s Featured Video
June 20 is World Refugee Day. My song, Refugee, was written in response to a bombing in Syria reported by the BBC in July of 2015. Even years later, the news hasn’t really changed. Recently, I was privileged to meet a woman with refugee status who had relocated from Syria to Canada. These are powerful and important stories. Thanks for listening. Watch the video for Refugee here.
