Inspiration struck one rainy afternoon in Halifax while on tour, I recorded a cover version of Foster The People’s “Pumped Up Kicks”. As soon as it hit the world wide web, a journey began that now finds us here, with a whole collection of songs voted by you called The Cover Sessions. They range from Sam Robert’s “Eileen” to versions of songs by Adele, Bill Withers and Tom Petty.
Staring on Sept 16th I will be touring Canada with The Cover Sessions EP in my hands to give away to you for free. It will only be available at the shows when you pre-purchase the next new full album that is being released next Spring 2012. Do that, and the EP is yours. As well, when pre-purchasing the new album you’ll receive your copy autographed a week before the official release date.
I’m really looking forward to playing these intimate venues with my co-producer and guitar player Dean Drouillard. I’ve written more than 30 songs for the next album and I’m excited to debut some of them for you. Each night I’ll be asking for feedback from you of which songs you think i should record for the new album (recording begins right after the Sneak Peek tour ends!)
Looking forward to seeing you at the shows!
