Album update! Plus a girl wears shorts WAY too small.

It's been a while.
Yes it has.
But let's look at this photo.
We all do dumb things in Vegas.
This girl thought these shorts were a good idea.
She must have shitty friends since they said nothing.
Now she has total strangers taking photos of her and posting them on their blogs.
Such horribly shitty friends.

Now look at this photo.
I hate the paper boy.

I'm still working on the new album. One more day in the studio will finish it up. Then Mixing and Mastering.
I've played some local gatherings Ecofest, A Food Bank gathering, a park festival I can't remember the name of, and I went to Vegas and learned how to losing. I did win at first, but ultimately lost in the end.
You've got to fill the time somehow when Europe gets cancelled.

There has been a slight change in my album.
It will be in 2 parts. One in CD form the other download only.

The original plan was to have 5-6 songs full band then 3 or 4 just acoustic. 
I do travel solo quite a lot and it would be nice to have some straight acoustic tunes to help relate the album to the solo shows.
but it seems the other studios I planned to record the acoustic songs at here in Barrie are unable to fit me in.
I was disappointed at first. 
But here's the idea
I'm going to make it an EP of full band songs. 
But while on the road I will record 3-4 acoustic songs in studios across Canada. At least one in the East, one in the West and one in Central. 
They will most likely, be download only. So while I am touring across our great nation promoting the new album. I'll have new songs to record along the way. 
I'm going to try and wrangle a few guest musicians for those tracks. 
It should be fun.  New studios, new engineers(maybe new players).
I'm excited about this idea. 
And I hope you are too.

Summer Tour: I'm at 30 plus dates for the summer and I can't wait to hit the road. I'll be hitting some of the same cities and towns plus a handful of new ones. But I've got more dates with less travel time. I'm pumped. I really love hitting the road and seeing new places meeting new people. 
I'm still filling in some odd dates. So far here is the hit list
(I was just doing some editing and I realized the tour dates come out wonky. I really don't want to write them out again so they will stay wonky. Just go to my web site to see them unwonked.

Alright I've got to continue working on the album art so in the mean time here are some photos

Here are some photos from the last time in the studio with Julien Michaud and Jeff Pelletier
