I’ve been writing, recording, and making plans for some COVID-safe shows this summer. Here’s a little update for you.
Keep an eye out for an upcoming music video I did with Clark Dubya, the ‘Up Here in Canada‘ guy. It’s a cheeky crash-and-burn love story duet, and we recorded it in my hometown of Lake Country, BC.
I recorded background vocals on a fun Outlaw honky-tonk tune for a fellow Calgary artist. It was cool to play around with harmonies and I’ll share the final version with you when it’s done.
In my downtime, I completed an online writing-for-artists crash course that really got me in the writing groove. We met three different Nashville artists and wrote for them based on what they were looking for in their next cut. It was such a different perspective to write for someone else’s personality and genre. I met a few writers to collaborate with and came out with three new songs. The highlight was meeting Canadian country artist Meghan Patrick, who called in from her truck – the only place should could find service after the Nashville storms.
I’ve been busy applying for a few different mentorship and development programs that I hope are fruitful. On the one hand I’m tentative to even apply, but on the other, why not throw my hat in the ring?
Other than that, I have a newfound obsession for Patsy Cline. My grandma gifted me her car, which has a CD player as its sole music-listening option. I picked up a Patsy Cline CD on a whim at the gas station and am loving the simplicity of listening to an album in its entirety over and over again.
Until next time,
