Emaline is playing piano, scary :)

I got this electric piano just under a month ago and the songs have been pouring out of me like a fever and annoying the crap out of my partner, constant practise and refinement.

I am really excited as it's been over two years since I had a keyboard or piano of sorts because of all the traveling, moving about and I wasn't sure if I had any real skills on this instrument but it looks like there has been something hidden away in me and it's finally coming out.

I'm no Tori or Amy Seeley (nod to you Amy) but I am not too bad and I am confident I will be playing at least a song or two at the next bunch of shows.

I am going to do my best to get some demos of these new songs done on my 4 track and up on here before I head out to Vancouver in the next few weeks so you can hear what I have been up to, just don't ask me what key anything is in, I haven't the foggiest :)

Joanna Newsom Last Night & Guitarist Wanted for Summer Tour

Are you obscenely talented on guitar and looking for a gig next summer?

Go here, read and listen;


Joanna Newsom last night!!!

I went to see Joanna Newsom perform at the Mod Club in Toronto last night with Sahra, Jason and Andreas and it was awesome.

She's a wonderful story teller and soooo cute, not to mention the amazing talent she has with the harp. I feel inspired.

The only thing thing I would say that could have been better was having the show at a different venue with more seating as it damn hurt to stand up for nearly 3 hours all squished up. Oh and the opening band were good too though I don't know their name, something weird. Will try and find out.
