Hey Excellent People and supporters of independent music!
How are you all doing? I hope all is well in your respective worlds. This is just a quick newsletter to give you info about my upcoming shows.
I’m in the middle of writing a keynote address for the conference I will be attending in November in Ontario. I am also pondering when the hell I’m going to get all this marking done for the classes I am TA-ing at UBC and Emily Carr University of Art and Design, and further to that, when the hell I am actually going to write my Master’s thesis! Sometimes I wonder what I have gotten myself into. But at least, I still get to perform here and there, in between all the school stuff. So, below are my shows for the rest of year, and I know they will be oh-so-fun! Shaw TV is filming the show in Edmonton because Camp fYrefly, Chase McKee (my youth co-songwriting buddy) and I are launching our new Camp fYrefly anthem, “fYreflies”. So, I may have a fun little video to show you all after the show’s over.
Wishing you well from cloudy Vancouver,
