here we are, midsummer

hello my friends.  i’ve bustled the kid off to camp and i have to settle down and write some ridiculous panto today, but i thought i’d take a sec to catch you up.  this is a picture (by Matt Reznek) from our showing of Little Volcano last april.  you can read a bit more about it and watch the trailer here: . we plan to tour this piece all over starting next year, so perhaps i will come to your town for the first time in a while.  the accompanying solo album will be out next spring!

also on the projects page I added a few demo recordings from the Bakkhai, which was at Stratford in 2017.  I wrote some songs with Anne Carson’s words, a thrilling experience for me.  i’m just slowly getting my digital house in order.  today i had myself Verified on YouTube, so i believe i can now claim to be an official YouTuber.  my kid is finally proud of me.

Vancouver folks, i am playing two free sets next wednesday, august 7, as part of the Street Beats series.  i’ll be on at noon outside city hall (there will be food trucks!) and at 5:30 outside the art gallery (there will be traffic!).  we’re also gearing up for an exciting Vhine Und Szong in October at the cultch, as part of the Raven Transforming Cabaret Series.  other bits and bobs: we just wrote and recorded a couple of faux 80s hits for the video game Later Daters, i’ll let you know when that comes out.  ami and i are actually working on a new thing, slowly. and i’m heading to edinburgh in a few weeks to check out the festival for the first time, which is perfect because i need to restock some tablet:

2019 here we go

hello all youse, happy january. the sun has come out this afternoon in vancouver town, and i’m here pecking away at my outdated computer trying to tell you things. here goes:

King Arthur’s Night (the album) comes out on February 22! We have an album release concert at the Vancouver East Cultural Centre on February 24, tickets are here:

And then we take that whole theatre show on the road to Hong Kong in march, holy toledo. I’ve update the tour page to make that official. There are also solo shows in Vancouver and Burnaby, plus the US premiere of Onegin at

The solo show is the beginning of an exciting thing that i’m working on with good old friends Maiko and James at Theatre Replacement. Together we’re making a salon style performance where I tell stories and play songs and build some kind of theatrical magic thing together with the people in the audience. I’m into it, it feels risky, and I hope it’ll hit the road in 2020 along with a new solo album. But let’s not get ahead of ourselves. Maybe i should get off the computer and get back on the piano keyboard, hey? Till soon, pals.
