My Blog!

Monday, November 16th, 2009

Hello everyone!
It’s been a while since my last update, but it was a busy summer, and you will soon start to see the fruits of my labour. In an effort to be a little more transparent and interactive, I’ve started this blog. This will allow me to update you all more frequently on what I am currently working on, as well as new projects on the way, and also let you know about any promotions and special events we have planned.

I hope you’ve all been enjoying the African Tapestries series. We recently released the newest album in the series “Amani”, as an individual CD. Many of the songs on the album are based on my childhood experiences living in Zimbabwe. On this album I’ve really tried to combine my childhood memories with my music to continue the journey through the rhythms of Southern Africa. One of my favorite places in Africa are the Vumba Mountains, and the track “Vumba Dawn” gets inspiration from the sounds of nature and wilderness around the mountains.

This month I’m offering “Vumba Dawn” as a free mp3 download. You can click HERE to download the track. The African Tapestries series, including “Amani”, is available on my website and also on iTunes Canada. International friends don’t worry, in addition to the physical CD, “Amani” is also available as a high quality album download on my website. I’ll let you know when the rest of the catalogue is available for download.

As you may have seen from my last updates, in May I had the great fortune to perform with some of my other fellow Canadians. We are in the final editing stages of the video from the concert. I’m very anxious to share videos from the performance, but for now I’ve posted more photos from this magical night in the gallery on my site. I’m really looking forward to doing more concerts in 2010.

It’s been a beautiful Fall season, with the leaves creating a kaleidoscope of colors. But it’s getting colder here in Toronto, and that means the holiday season is on its way! So we are re-releasing Christmas from the Tranquility series for Canadian record stores. You can of course also order the album from my online store. I will be sending you all a little gift very soon!

Looking down the road, you can expect more updates regarding a new album, upcoming performances and free downloads on my website. I always appreciate your feedback and support, so don’t hesitate to join me at a few of my other homes Facebook,  Myspace, and don’t forget to sign-up to my newsletter too!
