It's been some road to get here, but I'm beyond happy to announce that the new album - Patience - will be released worldwide on September 29th, 2017, which also happens to be my Ma's birthday.
We celebrated the new album with a couple of shows in Guelph and Toronto back in May, and now we're doing it all again, officially launching Patience with another show at Burdock in Toronto on Thursday, September 28th. Tickets will be on sale through the Burdock website soon, and I'll keep you posted on that, as well as touring plans for the fall and winter.
This was such a fun project. I trusted Byram Joseph (aka JUNO-winning producer Slakah the Beatchild) to guide it, and he pushed me outside of my comfort zone just enough to help me (and hopefully listeners) discover both where I am, and where I might go moving forward.
Beyond Slakah, I have to thank Anna Atkinson, Michael Olsen, and Mike Celia for their musical contributions to the album. Howie Shia provided the absolutely stunning album artwork, and iLLvibe directed the EPK video (above). I was very fortunate to have received funding through FACTOR and the Ontario Arts Council to help me get here, and the endless love and support of my family (by blood or by love) is beyond measure.
I really hope you'll enjoy this one.
