2016 NEWS
Posted on September 8, 2016

img_52842016 has been a busy year so far. After touring in Europe from February until May I jumped right back in the studio finishing up an album I had started for Adam Washburn, which will be released in late 2016.

In April I attended the East Coast Music Awards in Sydney N.S. where I was thrilled to hear that an album I made for Christina Martin (It’ll Be Alright) was named Pop Recording of the year! Then in May I got the great news that an album I had made the summer before for Gordie Mackeeman and His Rhythm Boys had won group recording of the years as well as Album of the year at the Music PEI Awards!

Soon after I started the summer by recording an album for New Brunswick artist Jessica Rhaye. Her 8-song album features myself, Mark Geddes, Mike Carroll, as well as appearances by Leith Fleming-Smith, Matt Anderson and Matt Epp, and is due out on September 13th.

Immediately after Jessica’s album was finished I was back at it with P.E.I artist Ashley Condon. This 10 song album features myself, Mark Geddes, Brian Murray, as well as The Eastern Belles (Ashley’s band with fellow Islanders, Maeghan Blanchard and Catherine MacLellan).

Rounding off the summer I’ve just started an album of Murder/Distaster songs with my good friend Jason Haywood. More to come about this project as it progresses.

This fall will see me getting away from the studio a bit more, as Christina Martin, myself and band are heading to Germany for a week to perform at the Reeperbahn Festival in Hamburg, and then embarking on a 2 week tour of eastern Canada with our good friend Matt Epp in November.

There are some exciting things in the works for the rest of 2016 and heading into 2017 that I can’t wait to share!

Just finished a debut full-length album for Nova Scotia’s rising star Kim Harris. Watch for her album release in Fall 2013. I’m off to mainland Europe for six months with Christina to play a tonne of shows including Rolling Stone Weekender Festival in November. It has been a busy year, and as soon as we return, more recording for both Billy Donnelly and Christina Martin’s new albums!

Thanks to Duesenberg Guitars in Hannover Germany for this lovely Pomona 6 Lapsteel and lovely guitars for our upcoming tour.
