Musing, mutterings and music: the blog

A Camp Radio cover to kick off the new year 

I thought I'd kick off my 2021 isolation sessions with a bit of a love song.

This is one of my favourite songs I wrote for Camp Radio, "Murder On My Skin".

The song first appeared on Camp Radio's "Campista Socialista" LP and there's a video as well (embed below).

I may release an acoustic version of this soon, but in the meantime, here is the Camp Radio version on Bandcamp:

And the original video is here:

Keep looking out for each other.

Check in on one another.

Support your favourite small businesses.

Thank our front line workers.

And contribute to your local food bank if you can.

We've still got a long way to go, but we will get through this.

Peace.

Happy New Year: It's New Year's Eve On The Couch 

New Year's Eve On The Couch: a little NYE song I released last year on the brink of 2020.

Little did I know how ominous the line 'until this new year proves me wrong' would become. 

Happy New Year everyone. Keep safe and hang on. 

I look forward to kicking out the jams with all of you in 2021!

Strumming Sweet Cessation 

As mentioned here yesterday, I released this track to streaming platforms on Dec 29 as a way of closing out 2020, so I thought I'd strum it for you as well.

You can also subscribe to my YouTube channel here to get notified of all videos like this.

Thanks for listening and supporting.

Peace and all the best in 2021.

Ending 2020 on some notes from a new song: Sweet Cessation 

One more new song for 2020.

Sweet Cessation wasn't written this year, but it feels like a good one to put out into the world at this mile marker we call end of year.

There are some lines in this song I'm reflecting on as we optimistically press on, out of 2020 and into 2021.

And I keep reminding myself that music does help.

Keep looking out for each other.

Check in on one another.

Support your favourite small businesses.

Thank all our front line workers.

And contribute to your local food bank if you can.

We've still got a long way to go, but we will get through this.

Peace. xo

New song collaboration for CBC's Project Give 

Lyle and I social distancing, masked up and recording a new track we wrote together.

As part of CBC's Project Give this year, I've written a new song with local blues musician Lyle Odjick.

The new track will help raise funds for The Ottawa Food Bank and will be revealed on CBC Ottawa's All In A Day on Friday Dec 11.

All In A Day runs from 3pm to 6pm eastern, locally on 91.5FM. Of course you can also listen in online or on the CBC Listen app.

Once revealed, the song will be available for download on The Ottawa Food Bank's site in exchange for a donation.

Tune in and donate if you can!
