open doors

my friend molly babin is not only an amazing musician, she is also organizing and filming this amazing series of interviews and videos called open doors: cape breton women in harmony. before the pandemic there were also some live shows, but the interviews are pretty awesome i think, it's more intimate, getting a glimpse into the performers' homes and lives.

check out open doors on facebook and youtube for more awesome female musicians in cape breton.

from the caper vault

so we recorded some tunes in a blanket fort for caper radio - i think about 2017-ish? and for various reasons they never got released. but since the pandemic, the radio station folks have had the opportunity to dig up some of these absolutely gorgeous videos full of sparkly lights. keep an eye on their youtube channel and facebook page for more excellent content forthcoming.

i haven't posted much lately. but i have a really great excuse. i was busy growing a human!

meet my little girl, river! she's been keeping me busy for the last little while, but i will be getting back into the swing of things soon.

while i was pregnant i had the chance to play some gigs, and i also got to do some special guest spots on some recordings that i am really excited about. one is the upcoming album by fire valley fire, and the other is this sweet rap song by mitchell bailey. check them out!

long time no see

i have been rather busy lately and not in the posting mood, but i have not been idle (see sidebar for upcoming shows, that's always pretty up to date). here's a tune i recorded with yvette in 2018, i guess it's getting some radio play in cape breton which is neat! i think it came out great. if you google billie yvette or last minute rivet you can find some more of yvette's awesome tunes.

recording recording recording

for the last few months i've been taking turns hibernating, working on school stuff, and collaborating with my musical friends on various recording projects. some are complete, some in progress, and some planned, but it's a big year.

first things first, i am super excited to share with you this excellent tune by last minute rivet, a side project of my pal billie yvette rogers. i feel so lucky to get to play with yvette because she is one of my favorite songwriters and just an all around excellent human being. this wasn't the only tune that we recorded so keep checking back because i'll put links to them here when they are released.

click here to download the song.

just so you know i'm not pulling your leg, here's a little rundown of the other recording projects i am working on currently: i am working on another cd with my dad, i got to guest star on an upcoming alright already recording, static in action are in the lab preparing for an upcoming recording and i am going to sing a lil something with my pals fire valley fire pretty soon too! and more recorded and in progress with yvette. the studio is my happy place.

stay tuned for more recording news, and get ready for destigmatize in may (see sidebar for more details).
