The Great Gig in the Sky – August 31

Well, not quite in the sky, but the show is at Hugh’s Room in Toronto, a truly wonderful spot.

But let  me start at the beginning:

Last year, I attended OCFF in Niagara Falls, an incredible conference with showcases all over the place. I wasn’t playing, but rather just there to soak it all up. I managed to meet a fellow by the name of Michael Wrycraft. He’s won too many awards for album design and packaging, yet I still managed to impress him with the 3D house version of Windows and Doors! He also really enjoyed the music, so he invited me to join this one-of-a-kind show in Toronto. It’s called “The Great Gig in the Sky – a tribute to Pink Floyd“.

I’ll be part of it all, alongside 7 other performers:

Ridley Bent, Elizabeth Shepherd & Michael Occhipinti, Dominic Mancuso, LAL, Paul Neufeld and friends, Andrea Koziol, and Retrocity [a 7 piece a cappella group!].

The format is unique, with each artist performing 2 Pink Floyd tunes with their own twist on them. Which ones am I doing? You’ll have to come to Toronto on Friday, August 31st to find out!

Tickets can be purchased via www.hughsroom.com.

More jumping phenomena!

So a natural phenomena has occurred: Shannon’s 365 days of Jumping project connected her to people all over the world through her Flickr account, all of whom have a fascination with photos of people jumping.

Fast forward to now, and several of these friends have seen the Fix music video that she did (and posted to Flickr). They all loved it, so they’ve ordered their own copies of Windows and Doors, and have now started taking photos of themselves jumping with the CD in view. A few weeks I posted a link to Joyce’s jump photo, but now I give to you, Flickr_Rick’s (from Salt Lake City, Utah) version:

Jumping for joy!

Joyce from Sudbury has been following Shannon’s ‘365 days of jumping‘ project, and recently ordered a copy of my CD after checking out the still photos from the ‘Fix’ video. I mailed it off right away, and I just saw that she literally jumped for joy when she received it!

Thanks for sending in the photo, Joyce, and I hope you enjoy the album!

Welcome Home Show & EP Fundraiser

Since I first started touring with “Windows and Doors” in September, 2009, I’ve crossed Canada 3 times, and done an extra Ontario tour.  I think it’s time for a short break!

Friday, December 3rd, will be my welcome home show, combined with a fundraiser to release my new EP (it features one-man-band a capella versions of some of my songs) in the new year.  More on that in another blog!

This show will also have Concepts (dance), City Sirens (rock/pop from Hamilton) and Nick Sherman (folk).
