Hi folks,
Two weeks have quickly passed by since I last checked in.  It’s all been going great here.  Most of my time has been spent relaxing in Halifax. Watching my backyard blossom into a true thing of beauty.  I love it. Last weekend, the trio (Al, Kyle and I) packed up a van and headed to the homeland of New Brunswick for a couple shows.  I played the IWK telethon in Saint John on Saturday night and on Sunday night I played my first show in Miramichi! It was awesome. Thanks so much to everyone that came out. On our way back to Nova Scotia we decided to take advantage of the surroundings and stopped for a little hike in Kouchibouguac National Park. It was really cool.  I hadn’t been there in ages.  I failed to take a single photo of the incredible beaches that are there but I did take this one of a neat bog hike we did.  

This week has been spent mostly working on new tunes (always a good thing to get back into), doing press interviews (“Need A Break” is now starting to get some commercial radio action in the Maritimes, which is pretty cool) and getting ready to head to Toronto next week.  I’m heading up there for NXNE (North by Northeast Music Festival).  It should be fun. The trio will be playing Friday night, June 18th at the Dakota and Saturday night, June 19th at the Gladstone.  I’m pumped to be heading back to the big city for a few days, especially during such a crazy weekend.
Hopefully I’ll see some of you at the shows.

Thanks as always for the visit.
Talk soon,
David
