Hi everyone,

I just wanted to send a quick note to let you know I’m in the running to represent New Brunswick in the Great Canadian SongQuest that CBC Radio 2 is presenting.  The contest will choose one songwriter from each province to write about a particular place in that province.  I’d love to be the one chosen from New Brunswick! So, if you want help make that happen you can go to http://www.cbc.ca/radio2/songquest/ and vote for me!  Thanks so much.

I hope you’re all doing well.  Things are going great here.  Started working away on the new album with my band and Joel Plaskett (who is producing) and today I’m headed to India for three weeks!

Thanks again,

Take care,

David

NOTE: Voters have from today until Friday, Oct. 23, at 12 a.m. ET, to choose from a shortlist of the most popular places from each province and territory, and the artists they’d like to see create the song for those locations, by visiting http://www.cbc.ca/radio2/songquest/ . Once voting closes, the final 13 artists have four weeks to compose and record an original song, inspired by the most popular Canadian location from their province or territory.
