It's all about the Music.

Been awhile huh? Sorry, computer has been down...  Alas laptop is still dead, cell phone broke in two and my digi cam fell outta my hands one too many times. Is the world trying to tell me something? Slow down in the metal department perhaps? In the meantime I have been playing new music all the time and falling in Love with this new music. If you haven't yet heard of Jadea Kelly, RUSH out and find her CD "Second Spring" Vocally I may compare her to The Sundays or Camera Obscura... I am also enjoying some other newbies on my radar... Trevor Alguire, Rich Burnett and well, have I even mentioned Fever Ray or Bat For Lashes? Gosh, this world is SO full of greatness... I can't even begin to start.  Last night I played a sold out show with YOAV... he is quite the guitarically looping genius. What a guy.  Last weekend, another packed house with the likes of newly formed family band called Phelgm, maybe not the nicest name, but HECK can they play. It makes me wonder what it would have been like to grow up in a musical "jam in the kitchen" type family.. such fun, I'm sure! In the meantime, I have been trying out my newest song "Give, Take" to some happy-liking it people.. seems to be going over quite well!! Yay! With hopes I will be playing it for YOU soon. I'm also writing with another electronical genius from Ireland... Skully! or the musical half of Metisse. Imagine, writing and recording having never met!! Oh, the pure brilliance of the magical inter-web! In the meantime, if you are in the Toronto area next weekend, I will be playing the opening set for The Daniel Sky Band at Not My Dog on the 26th and again at Graffitti's in Kensington Market as part of "Songwriter's Unite" series on the 28th. This weekend will see me volunteering at the Canadian Folk Music Awards... perhaps one day I may win one? You never know what the future will bring, but MUSIC, any kind, had better be there. xo

Lunar Eclipse & Andy Swan

Folks, what a night last night. I was high on moonshine & a little red wine... what a great show at Tranzac in Toronto. I shared the stage with The Talented Mr. Andy Swan. He is fantastic & his voice is SWEET! It's amazing what kind of energy the Universe gives us when something so special as a Full Moon Lunar Eclipse comes into play. I was all riled up & ready for anything. I Love nights like that... & to be honest there weren't too many people out for the performance, but the music sang louder & hearts were won I'm sure!! Toronto life has been very kind so far... this little visit to another part of the world has done heaps of good, I have some great shows coming up... The March 7th show at Savannah Room (the old Oasis) will be fantastic, as part of Canadian Music Week, it's an 11pm SHARP start... so come out if you are in The Big Smoke. Also, I am hosting an Indie Song Writers Night at The Supermarket (in Kensington Market) once a month, the first one will be held on the 31st of March... So far I have an enormously talented lad, Mr. Ron Leary as part of the first Sing-Song night... I will of course keep you posted... Check out my new song "Monkeys Under Stars" on YOUTUBE... it's my favourite so far... hope you like it. Take good care... February is almost over!! Love Lindsay
