New album, Old Paint
It’s been a little while in the making, but my new album is finally ready to see the light of day. I’m so pleased with it and super grateful to all the wonderfully talented people who contributed their talents to the final product. This album is a little different than the last one; all acoustic, all new-timey traditional tunes. It was such a joy to create, and I really hope you all enjoy listening to it. You can pick up your very own copy at the click of a finger over at CD Baby.
And to get on to the celebrating right away, this weekend I’ll be boarding a ferry over to beautiful Courtenay, BC to play a couple sets at the Elevate the Arts Festival. Let the summer festivating begin! I’ll be touring all over British Columbia, Saskatchewan, Montana, Idaho, Oregon, and Washington throughout the next couple months, so be sure to check out the Events page for more details.
In other news, the Erato Ensemble gave a fabulous premiere performance of “What a Dream” this spring. Stay tuned for some audio/video samples of that concert. Plus, the Vancouver Chinese Music Ensemble will be premiering a new piece later this year; I promise to keep you updated as the details emerge. And I’ll be working on a new string quartet commissioned by the University of British Columbia this summer, so if you need to find me I’ll either be in my studio, at the festival du jour, or at the nearest swimming hole…
