This old fella, @johnworthannam, has become a great pal and mentor over the last few years and I’ve come to know that when he’s not telling dirty tasteless jokes he actually has a good heart.
He’s put together a very cool show for the past several years called, Songs 4 Ken.
It’s a show that features a killer house band and some great Alberta artists and raises funds for the ALS society of Alberta.
I’m thrilled to be a part of such a cool tradition this year, Sept. 26 in Fort Macleod, Sept. 27 at Fish Creek Concerts in Calgary. Come see myself along with @emilyvtriggs Mike Stack, @jesseannedoll @randall.wiebe_artist

After a decade of going to festivals and conferences, I’ve had experiences seeing a lot of great music all at once before for sure. But sometimes it can almost feel discouraging…I think it’s easy to feel like there are so many great people doing this, how do I fit in? How am I going to be able to keep doing this?
But Americana Fest was different, it was hopeful and inclusive and it makes me want to work harder at my craft, play more and sing more.
I wanted to share some of the musical highlights, so I made a Spotify playlist for you guys (link in bio). Thanks so much to all the folks who made this experience so positive!
Tomorrow morning I’m jumping on the plane, heading to Nashville! This is my second time in Nashville, but the first time checking out @americanafest
This festival is something I’ve always wanted to go to, so many artists who’ve influenced me will be playing at some point this week in music city.
Not only am I stoked to go, but honoured to have an official showcase and play alongside some amazing Canadian artists.
So much gratitude to @factorcanada @alberta_music and @breakoutwest for making this possible. Looking forward to sharing the stage with @thebroslandreth and @shantaiamusic as well as @joenolanmusic @valhallamusic @tylerdelpinomusic @jayandjomusic @desireedorion

What a treat to spend so much time with these girls over the last few weeks. These are special times for sure.
I’ve got lots of exciting shows and travels in the very near future - details to be announced soon.
Until then, I’ll be hanging with these beauties.
Happiest of birthdays to @marielbuckley aka, aunty Bucks. Your nieces miss you, come home soon...❤️❤️
