My New (and first!) Single is streaming everywhere! West Coast, here I come!

west coast-4

As someone who has moved around a lot, many of my songs have themes of travel, adventure, and longing. This song was inspired by an urge to hit the road, which was inspired by a breakup, which then inspired romanticizing far away places, and the way that we’ll feel if we ever get there. Like a lot of my music, this was a family affair. My Dad produced and tracked the song. My Uncle Mike (one of the best sax players in the country) completes the tune with playful melodies and killer riffs. This song has been a road trip in itself. My vocal was recorded in Niagara, the rest of the song was tracked and produced in Singapore, the sax part recorded in Toronto, and it is now being released in Dublin. I hope you enjoy my first single, West Coast!

Dublin in Springtime

My last few weeks in Dublin were hectic! I was working on my EP stuff, and had some lovely visitors from afar. I co-hosted and planned a charity gig. We had 10 bands, a full night of music, and were able to raise money for an amazing cause, Together for Better Days. I played a full set with the Kicks.

The day before I flew out, we did some recording at the beautiful Camden Studios! It was great to have these last two hurrahs before the summertime.
