Ahoy! Is it Spring yet where you are? I think it might be coming to Nova Scotia, but I really don’t want to jinx anything, so I’ll just say it was sunny here today and the temperature was warm enough to continue melting some of the mammoth snowbanks we have become accustomed to. No matter! I am only home for two days anyway, as we began touring the new album a little while ago.

Tour dates can be found here below, or via the show link above.

Hope to see you at a show!

‘With Our Trouble’ in CBC Radio 2 Charts!

Hot damn! This is exciting! CBC Radio 2 has been playing ‘With Our Trouble’ and the song has made it into the charts. It’s pretty cool to be sitting in the same company as some friends and heroes of mine. You can wander over here if you’d like to see the list, listen to the show, and discover some new songs.

Have a lovely Sunday, friends! I’m off to shovel yet more snow on this sunny Spring day in Halifax.

Bugs n’fishes,

Coast Cover Tempest

Release Day! WAHOO!!!

Hello sweethearts!

The Tempest of Old has officially been released! I waited until midnight last night and then hit the ‘release’ button for my website/bandcamp with all the fanfare that a person sitting in front of a computer at midnight can muster. It was glorious. Thanks to Daniel Ledwell for being the best producer. The best.

And thanks heaps to these dear, sweet, insanely talented humans who played and sang on the record: Fleur Mainville, Nicholas Maclean, Sean MacGillivray, Corinna Rose, Jenn Grant, Kim Harris, Carmel Mikol, Stewart Legere, Gabe Minnikin, Simon Honeyman, Natalie Alcorn, Kinley Dowling, Kev Corbett, Anne Janelle, Catriona Sturton, Leah Dolgoy, John Spearns, and Michael Belyea. Thanks also to Jen Ochej for shuttling me back and forth from Lake Echo on many recording days. She also shot heaps of footage that I will someday get through and cobble into a video or two.

I am pretty lucky.

Bugs n’ fishes,
