Vancouver Island Book Tour Starts Now!

OK… I had a crazy great time at the Western Canadian Music Awards and Breakout West in Kelowna BC this past weekend! Thanks to all who made sure that my time was fantastic and packed to the max with fantastic music.

I loved hosting the awards show last night with my new friend Miche, too. Top highlights included You Say Party and Grand Analog‘s collaborative performance at the awards (they both went on to win their categories), same goes for Aidan Knight with Said the Whale and Maurice, and the legendary Grapes of Wrath paired up with We Are The City (my new band, apparently). Also a huge thanks to Michael Bernard Fitzgerald and Said the Whale for both performing at my Kelowna book launch at Mosaic Books.

Up next for me is a week-long Adventures in Solitude Book Tour of Vancouver Island! Looking forward to it, hope to see you at one of these events! My lovely wife Jill Barber is playing every one.

    Rad times at Breakout for sure. Nice work on your little speaking session – some helpful tips for all. Happy travels back home…

    Wha?! Where’s the promised Quadra Island stop on the grand Vancouver Island tour?!?

    @freshginger Sorry, it turned out I was double-booked and had to postpone the Quadra Island stop to later in December or January!
