Its been a very exciting spring break so far, and its crazy to think that in just a few more months I'll be done school and doing all this crazy, exciting stuff all the time!

Things have been crazy around here lately. I've been super busy touring schools around Alberta, and I've just started working with a new booking agent. Firebones Management is taking me on and I'm super pumped! We will be touring schools across Canada next fall!
I have been writing songs like crazy in prep for a new single thats coming out, we're going to record 3 songs so I've been co-writing, writing on my own, and listening to the production in various songs to get EXACTLY what I'm looking for!
It's killing me not to tell you but there will be a huge announcement really soon!
I'll keep you all updated on my crazy adventures!

I had a fantastic trip to Toronto this last week! Although we never left the hotel it was so cool to be there! I had an extremely productive trip, meeting with a label, an agent, a licencing rep, as well as 2 awesome radio interviews and 8 showcases over the course of 4 spectacular days. Note those are days, I did not get any sleep whatsoever, but as it was stated at the convention, sleep when your dead! haha. As much fun as I had out in Toronto it is nice to be home, minus the going to school part, and I'm looking forward to several school presentations in the next few weeks!
The Folk Alliance did an incredible job of the convention, I'd go back in a heartbeat! What an experience, and definitely a great adventure in my journey! It was truly an honor to be amongst so many talented artists and to gain friendships with so many amazing people, artists, key industry members, even the random goofs in the elavators and stairwells!
A huge Thank you to Bow Valley Music Club and everyone involved in the Toronto Bound trip, as well as all of those in Folk Alliance that made it all happen!

We are 4 days from take off to Toronto for the Folk Alliance International Conference!! Super pumped for this trip! Gonna be stressful and tiring but none the less I'm sure it will be a very productive and fun trip! I have 8 showcases planned for the 4 day trip, as well as a radio interview and a few business meetings while I'm there.
As well as getting ready for the trip in the past few weeks I have been getting calls like crazy for my school tour! We will be kicking off the new semester school tour as soon as we get back from our toronto trip! So on top of the excitement of toronto I am excited to tour around to schools as well!

Things have been crazy busy since school started up again, something new every weekend! Just last night I opened for Lisa Brokop and Paul Jefferson (AKA The Jeffersons) and before that I was one of the two young albertans at ATAA's Alberta Showcase! Such a huge honour to be a part of both these events! Now I'm starting to gear up to release my new single "Lucky Love Is Blind"! I'm super excited, and all these crazy gigs have put me on a creative high! I've been writing some new songs that I'm really excited about and can't wait to record! I'm also very honoured to be invited to participate in the Folk Alliance convention in Toronto in February! I'm going with a group of extremely talented artists and musicians called "Toronto Bound"! We've even put together a compilation CD with all these amazing people on it! The CD's are available by every member of the trip at their live shows! I'm so excited for all the booming activity I've seen these past few months and I can't wait for more!

Well there is less than a week left till school which means I am coming to the end of my last summer break.. Its been an amazing summer, packed with gigs, photoshoots, new videos, and tons of social networking! One more year of school and I will be facing the real scary world, doing what I love the most... Music! I've had some really amazing experiences this summer, working with some amazing musicians, writing new songs, and having a blast on stage! My most recent gig was probably the most fun I've ever had on stage. I performed at The Taste of Calgary festival with Serge Soucy and Therry Lawson and it felt amazing! The croud was energetic and their vibes made us even more excited to be there! Will definitely never forget that gig! Everything I have done this summer has been a huge learning experience and has definitely contributed to my development as an artist! I wouldn't change this summer for the world, and I'm gonna miss it a lot! But the summer isn't quite over yet! This weekend I will be at Okotoks performing for the Chinook Honey Co. This may be the last gig of my summer break but the school year is already looking busy with tons of weekend gigs! Very excited! This may be the best year yet!

Saturday at BVJ was amazing! I got to perform with incredable artists Including Samantha King and Clayton Belamy, among other amazing talent! It was an honour to be on stage with such established artists, I hope to be back again next year! The whole Jamboree was truely amazing! After my performance we spent the day listening to other artists and stayed for the Toby Keith concert! Unfortunately the concert was delayed because of weather, but once he started there wasnt one person not singing along! It was a blast! Even the huge rainfall dumping all over the entire croud was fun! All in all amazing day, even with all the bumps I wouldnt change it for the world! By far the best summer festival I have had the pleasure of performing at!
Much Love and awaiting next year!

I've had a great summer so far, working like crazy on my music career from dawn to dusk, and it's paying off! My fan base has gone up like crazy this summer and I'm getting ready for some amazing gigs! Next weekend I'll be at Big Valley Jamboree on the songwriters stage, so my focus has been zoned in on perfecting my set for that! Then later in August I'll be playing at Taste of Calgary with my band and then at the ATAA Alberta Showcase! I'm super excited! I can't believe summer is already half over and I'll be going into my final year of high school, I wish this summer would last forever! At this point, I can't imagine what I would do without music, I could tell you what it tastes like right now, seeing as I've been sleeping, breathing, eating music! haha. Thank goodness I have people in my life who support me in my career, I can't wait to show them that their belief in me was right!
Much love and thank you for your support

On Saturday I performed on the Wow stage at the stampede, what a day! There was a huge croud which was awesome for my performance! I had a blast and can't wait for next years stampede to roll around! We ended up spending the rest of the day on the grounds fighting our way through the crouds, luckily it wasnt as hot out on saturday so weaving through the streets wasnt as bad! On our way out we went through the back door to get a ride back to our parking place and we ran into Paul Brandt! It was so cool! I tried my hardest not to be starstruck and gave him one of my CD's! Lets hope he listens to it! He also told me to tell Lisa Brokop that he wanted a rematch in pool, so sending out that message to her aswell! All in all the day went very well! Nothin wrong with meeting celebrities right! haha. But now I'm back to the norm, and getting ready for next friday at Westerner Days in Red Deer. Gonna be another busy weekend so i'm absorbing the practice time and sleep in capabilites of the week! See you all next week in Red Deer!
