2015 Canadian Songwriter Challenge

Jun 2, 2015

Spring in Canada is incredible. Seriously, I think Alberta has one of the best places to be pre-summer. This past week we finally got our garden planted and we’re hoping for a better return than last year – but that’s another story. This week we’ll be playing 5 gigs up around Edmonton and the surrounding communities. It’ll be nice to make our way back north to connect with our prairie friends.

In other news: next week I’ll be participating in Bell Media’s 2015 Canadian Songwriter Challenge, which is hosted in part by the Songwriters Association of Canada, Alberta Music, and it’s being hosted at OCL Studios. It’ll be a really exciting time of growth for me, as some of you may know, I haven’t done much co-writing before and this will be a great chance to work with some other songwriters from all over Alberta. To be honest, I’m a little nervous… Wish me luck?

May 21, 2015

Great news friends: our newest album, ‘Heads Is East, Tails Is West’ has been nominated for a 2015 Western Canadian Music Award! This is a great feeling, knowing that our debut album won our first WCMA in 2012. I don’t know about you guys, but we’re hoping this is a sign of things to come… Either way, we’re feeling great and on a roll with 2 for 2 WCMA nods.

In other exciting news, we’ll be doing a live on location interview and performance with CBC’s The Homestretch in Calgary, AB on May 22nd. You can tune in from 3 to 6 PM, during which time we’ll be sharing 6 songs and doing interviews every hour. We look forward to chatting it up with Doug Dirks and hope that you’ll enjoy it too!

The voting stage takes place from May 4th to 18th, and we need to make the top 20. The best part? You only need to cast 5 votes for us ONE TIME!

Similar to many other music contests out there, we need your votes to make the top 20 video pitches. Please check out our Music Video Pitch by clicking HERE and send us some love?
