Off to the Maritimes, a magical place in Eastern Canada with giant lobsters and friendly faces, to play 6 shows in 5 cities. First, I’ll head to Halifax, to accompany The Bubble Wizard, offer him some moral support and perhaps … Continue reading

Lots of shows! Lots of Press! and New Brunswick!

I’m just over-flowing with happiness and good news!
Firstly: I got a sunburn! Which means it’s nice out! (In Montreal!?!)

I performed last week to a full-house at Sala Rossa, opening for Rich Aucoin.
D:MC (space-rapper) danced his ass off in an astronaut suit. Rich Aucoin coated the venue with streamers and made everyone jump, sing and sweat.

But don’t take my word for it, here’s a review of the show from Camuz!

The only bummer about the show was that my camera got stolen from the backstage area (so if anyone has a Canon 60D to sell, let me know!)

I was also interviewed by Voir about the One Man Band festival! They asked about what it’s like to play solo and why there aren’t many solo female musicians out there. (Where are y’all?)

I have a two upcoming shows in Montreal:
June 8th at Il Motore (4pm) for the Slut Island Festival
June 20th at the Fringe Festival

And lastly, I’m booking a tour across the Maritimes!
I was accepted to play at Messtival on August 9th in Anagance, New Brunswick and I can’t wait!

It’s gonna be weird. Almost as weird as German festivals (crazy Germans). They asked me if I was willing to sport a moustache during the festival, and that’s a good sign.

Live on CKUT Radio

I was interviewed on the radio yesterday by host (and friend) Jon Cohen (who was so full of compliments that he is directly responsible for my ego tripling in size today.)

We talked about my upcoming performance at the One Man Band Festival (where I’ll opening for Rich Aucoin! He’s a Canadian musician who loves confetti and Brian Wilson even more than I do!)

I played a couple songs and tap-danced on air, take a listen:
