Hey friends. So a few weeks ago I met up with Sean & Cheryl from BalconyTV Edmonton – a sweet “franchise” if you will in cities all over the world, that includes performances & interviews with artists of all genres on balconies overlooking the downtown core in the corresponding city. An amazing concept I think. I sang one of my songs Heavy Heart that will be on the upcoming record.
Here’s the vid:
It was really fun to do, and if you listen carefully at the end of the song you can hear icicles falling from the balcony above us. I love unique arts projects like this! There are some great local and Canadian artists on the website so check it out.
This coming Tuesday I have a photo shoot with an old friend from high school that has become an amazing photographer, Lillian Patz (Visible Echo Photography) for the record graphics. I am stoked to work with Lillian since we go way back and because I think her photography is fantastic. I’m also working with the graphic artist/web designer that built my original website to do a full overhaul, to line up with my digital release next month. I’m planning on having a new website to go with the new record. We’ll be using the photos from this shoot on Tuesday as a basis for the re-branding. I’m really excited to see what we come up with.
Also, this coming Monday I’ll be joining the fantastic Jesse Peters Trio in Westlock on a few songs for the release of his new record FACETIME along with a benefit for the arts program at the Westlock highs school. Could a show get any cooler? Don’t think so.
I’m also going into the studio this week to fix up some harmonies on one song, and then my portion of the record will be officially FINISHED. Woohoo! The editing, mixing & mastering comes next. I can’t believe this album is almost finished.
On a non-music related note, next week I am going to Canmore to run a 12K race I have been training for, with my Prairie Belles cohort Daneel Irons. It’s going to be tough going from running through the fairly flat prairies to a mountainous town with a different altitude but I believe in us! I’ll be sure to let you all know how it goes.
That’s the latest!
