Homeward Bound to Canadian Ground

Apr 15, 2015

Well it’s hard to believe, but we’re wrapping up the past four-months of traveling through Europe. Soon we’ll be back on Canadian soil, taking in the beautiful Albertan springtime. Our experiences in Europe and the UK have been very positive – and we’ve met so many kind, friendly, and generous people on our journey. It seems very probable that we may return to these foreign lands much sooner than expected. We’ll make sure to keep you posted on future developments.

In other news: we just learned that we’re a current Finalist in the International Songwriting Competition. It’s another encouraging step for us as independent Artists. We’ll keep on writing new material and trying to improve our songwriting abilities while taking liberties along the way.

We also wanted to thank everyone who has been keeping tabs with us while we’ve been overseas – and we wanted to thank you for supporting us in this year’s round of CBC Searchlight. With your help we made it to the Regional Semi-finals as a solo act, which is something to be pleased about.

International Songwriting Competition

Mar 5, 2015

What the heck!? The good news just seems to keep coming. Earlier today we were notified that we’re a current semi-finalist in four separate songwriting categories in this year’s International Songwriting Competition. That means we’ve made the top 10% of over 18,000 applicant entries. Now to wait and see what happens next…

It’s an encouraging bit of news as we have been working on writing some new songs in England. The British countryside is a truly wonderful thing to enjoy – though we often think of our beautiful prairies and foothills back home. Dang. Now I’m homesick. Gahhh!

SongDoor Int’l Songwriting Competition

Feb 10, 2015

Yeesh! The updates keep on rolling in… We just discovered that we were finalists in the SongDoor International Songwriting Competition – so close in fact, that we came in second by less that a dozen votes. We’re honoured to have been selected as a finalist in this international songwriting competition, and hopefully next year we’ll take home a ‘winner’ title. Gotta stay positive right?

At the moment we’re staying in a village called Evenley in the beautiful English countryside of Northamptonshire. It’s a gorgeous location and the house is constantly filled with the sounds of piano and acoustic guitar – very inspiring to say the least. We hope to turn out a song or two while we’re here. The British winter is a pretty decent motivator to stay indoors and write.
