UK Trip with a Handful of Solo Shows. Eee!

Hello hello hi!

Here’s a very quick post to tell you that I’m off to the UK next week, and I’ll be there for a whole month! I’m going over to do many different kinds of things related to music, rather than for a tour, but I will be playing a handful of intimate solo shows while I’m there.

I spent a good portion of the Spring and Summer writing, and then recording a new record, and while we are keeping it very close to our chests for a while yet, I’ve started playing some of the new songs at shows. If you’re keen to hear them and you live in London, Leeds, or Sheffield, you’re in luck!

Here’s where I’ll be (more details being added to my show page imminently):

Thursday, September 22nd: London, Book & Kitchen
Monday, September 26th: Leeds, Oporto
Tuesday, September 27th: Sheffield, Cafe Number 9
Thursday, September 29th: London, The Green Note, support for Otis Gibbs (SOLD OUT)
Tuesday, October 4th: London, The Abbey

Come out to a show, say hello, hear some old favourites, and some new gems. I can’t wait to share them with you!

Website Fun

Hello friends!

I’ve lots of news and thoughts to share after such a busy Fall, and those updates are coming very very soon. In the meantime, I am trying to figure out my own website’s inner workings and you may notice a few odd formatting things in the next few days. Imagine me being a very frustrated human with my computer (“Patience, Gabrielle. It’s just a computer and those are just numbers,” being my constant mantra) and please be patient with me. All will look as it should in a (hopefully!) short time.

Bugs n’fishes,

Nova Scotia Music Week!

Hokay! It’s time! The bandlings and I are bound for Yarmouth on Thursday morning to showcase at Nova Scotia Music Week. Super proud of all of them: Sean and Nick are each playing in four bands (including mine), Carmel is showcasing her amazing new album, and Jordi is playing in 3 bands AND is nominated for a Music nova Scotia Award for Musician of the Year.

Sadly, because I can’t be in two places at once, this means I’ll be missing the Canadian Folk Music Awards in Edmonton, but I am over-the-moon proud to have been nominated with some amazing fellow artists. Jordi and I will be at the awards ceremony for the Music Nova Scotia Awards on Sunday morning (still can’t believe Tempest of Old got four award-nominations!) enjoying the whole award fanfare.

Here’s to an amazing NSMW and some adventures in Yarmouth!

UK/International Album Release Time and Reeperbahn!

Well hello, lovelies!

I hope this finds you all well. I’m just home from an amazing tour in Western Canada with Lisa Leblanc and her amazing, magical, delightful posse. We had so much fun. We played in some beautiful spaces with wonderful audiences.

This shot was taken at our last show in Calgary. I’m going to miss these beauties.

On Tuesday the 22nd, the bandlings and I will reunite to head out on our first adventure in Germany. We are playing the Reeperbahn Festival in Hamburg with a bunch of Canadian favourite musical friends. Eee! Then Jordi and Nick will head home, and Carmel Mikol and Gina Burgess and I will head to the UK where we are playing a string of release shows for The Tempest of Old, which will be released internationally on September 25th. So many things coming up!

I’m leaving it at that. As always, I will be social media-ing throughout the whole adventure. Facebook/Twitter/Instagram–pick yer poison!

Hope to see you soon!

Bugs n’fishes,
