the end of live jazz monday, nov 4

After four amazing years, I have made the difficult decision to end my weekly residency at Mercury Lounge. If you are in Ottawa on November 4th, François, Angèle, and I would like to invite you to our big goodbye celebration. There will be delicious treats, surprise guests, and of course – beautiful music. Entrance is […]

My Week In Pictures: Writing, Radio, and a Concert in Montreal

This was an unusually productive week. Not to say that my weeks are not usually productive, but this week I made a life change: I stopped watching TV with breakfast. This may seem like a trivial thing but it has made a WORLD of difference for me. For starters I got my morning journal writing […]

My Week In Pictures: Rehab Centre week 3 + a photoshoot

Week 3 at the Rehab Centre’s chronic pain management program is complete, which means I only have one week left! If you have no idea what I’m talking about check out my updates from week 1 and week 2 where I explain all about why I’m there and what it’s all about then come back […]

My Week In Pictures: Rehab Centre Week 2

This week, although it was my second week at the Rehab Centre, it was my first official week in the Chronic Pain Management program. That means that this week I was there from 8:30am until 2:30 or 3pm every day. At first I was a little worried that I wasn’t going to be able to […]

Live Jazz Monday is back!!

Hey folks! Guess what!? After a few weeks hiatus due to holidays and illness, Live Jazz Monday is back! Join me and François Gravel at Mercury Lounge on Monday, January 7th at 9pm for some great music (if I do say so myself), the jazz cocktail of the week, and the usual antics. I’m soooooo […]

My Week In Pictures: postage and packaging

It’s been a week since my CD release and I must say, things have been way busier than I expected. Then again, I expected to spend the entire week in the tub, drinking a beer so anything more than that feels “busy.” I spent last weekend and most of Monday preparing Indiegogo perks to be […]

My first performance with VoiceLive Touch

It’s not much but it’s a start. Last month I purchased the VoiceLive Touch from TC Helicon. I spent a few week’s playing with it before including in my performance. You can check out my first performance with the VoiceLive Touch in the video above, which was shot by Craig Pedersen at the third birthday […]

Photos from Live Jazz Monday’s Third Birthday

Whoa! Last night Live Jazz Monday turned 3 years old and the party was spectacular! I decided that since we were entering our terrible threes, we should throw a party fit for a toddler, complete with colourful party hats, streamers, balloons, squiggly candles, and sweet treats to eat. Fortunately, our audience was quick with the […]

My Week In Pictures: endless celebration (and gourmet doughnuts)

This has been a luxurious, hedonistic, celebratory week. In fact, if I had to describe my week in a word, I would call it “festive.” I’ve decided lately that I want to spend a little more time, energy, and money on fashion, makeup, and accessories. I’m fortunate that I get the opportunity to get on […]

My Week In Pictures: Spontaneous jazz

Another week gone by, another whole ton of things to tell you about. Lately I’ve been trying to get back on track with my practice schedule, with my deadlines for grants and other applications, and basically everything now that Here We Go Again is off to the printer and out of my hands. I spent […]
