Greetings from a cold but sunny Halifax,
Happy New Year.  I hope you’re all starting 2008 well rested and ready to roll.  Things have been great here lately.  I had a great trip out west for a couple shows in Canmore and Edmonton.   It was awesome to see everyone and thanks so much to the folks that help make those shows possible.  They were a lot of fun. 
In other news, I’m pleased to report the album is now mastered and ready to hit the press.  Just working out the final details on the album art.  I’m really excited about it.  It’s been a whole heck of a lot of work but I think it’s come out really nicely.  Lots of great folks lent their talents as well.  Garrett Mason, Matt Mays, Geoff Arsenault, Tom Easley, Kim Dunn, Jim Bryson, Meaghan Smith, Bill Stevenson, Thom Swift, Old Man Luedecke and a bunch of others.  It’s pretty crazy.  I feel really lucky to get all these people on here and they do a wicked job.  Anyway, it looks like all will be ready to roll sometime in stores in late April. 
However, the album will be available before then to be purchased at the live shows I’m doing starting at the end of March.   A CD release tour in the Maritimes has been coming together and it’s starting to look really great.  Doing a bunch of theatre type spots throughout Nova Scotia and New Brunswick, most of which I’ll be playing with a band.  Very exciting indeed.   More details to come about that but for now you can check out what’s been booked and ready to roll in the upcoming shows section. 
I think that’s it for now.  I’m really looking forward to sharing these new tunes with you.  
Thanks, as always, for the visit. 
Take care,

David
