TWO HEARTS

TWO HEARTS

It’s strange to imagine what my life would be like, has I not met Dale Murray in 2007.  I was trying to quit music and become a cruise sales specialist.  At that time, I think I was being a lazy musician, unwilling to embrace the ‘business’ side of music.   It had been five years since releasing my first album Pretty Things.

Then one night in 2007 I was playing a summer show at Gingers Tavern in Halifax, and after the show, Matt Mays took me aside and asked me what I was doing with my music.  I remember expressing concerns about money, and he basically just told me that wasn’t where my focus should be.  He invited me to a recording session to sing backup the following day, and THAT is where Dale Murray serendipitously dropped by. It was a long and smokey night, and soon after Dale began working with me on what would become my sophomore album Two Hearts.

It was a relief to be making music that resonated with me again.  Thanks to Dale and his Dartmouth basement studio, and a great batch of Maritime musicians, my live show was shaping up and I was able to rock things up a bit.   I spent most of my time learning the business side of the music industry, learning how to network and connect with fans, and lovely things began to happen.

I started touring for the first time in my life and we began showcasing on fun stages across Canada. Along the way I was playing A LOT of house concerts to build my fanbase.  I would ask fans online if they were interested in hosting a concert, and then email people a self-made ‘How to Host a House Concert’ guide.  We played on trains, in pubs, and in coffee shops big and small.
