Lupita’s Misadventures Kickstarter

I just finished a book, which chronicles the life-changing and exciting cross-Canada adventure we embarked upon last summer.  The story is told from the perspective of our minivan, Lupita.   Although (like many people) I often suffer from debilitating self-doubt, I recently won a prize in an international competition for a short story I wrote, which gave… Continue reading Lupita’s Misadventures Kickstarter

Xania Keane has no qualms about telling such tales of frugality and misfortune in her latest video, aptly titled “I’m Broke,” which is also a single from her latest album, All Alone Together. In the video she mops… Continue reading Music Video


I had a wonderful weekend performing in Sheffield and Leeds! Saturday I played at Bank Street Arts surrounded by highly detailed paintings of dwarves. Joey MacPhail opened the night with some envious guitar and vocal skillz. Last night I opened for Thomas Truax at the Brudenell Social Club. He invented his own band-mates out of… Continue reading Leeds!
