Last year around this time, I was fortunate enough to take part in Divas Night Out, a fundraiser for Women's Shelters in Regina. This year I'm not involved in the event, so I was completely taken by surprise when I opened the paper this morning and saw myself. I won't lie, I was excited to see myself in the paper - it was a wonderful reminder of the great experience I had at last year's event and it's especially nice to be reminded of right now since I've been unable to do music for over a month due to an…Read more
Add them together (along with a bunch of other words) and you have my new song This Deck Of Cards! I'm really excited to be performing it for the first time tomorrow night (July 7th) at The Capitol with my friend Kara Golemba!

Finally, after 4 long months, my breathing is back to normal and one week from…Read more
Women are [insert flattering term of choice here]!! Women are also [insert other flattering term of choice here]!! (Not saying those with both X and Y chromosomes aren't also awesome (because you are!), but this post is about the ladies.)
As it happens, the last 3 performances I've had were also all about the ladies!! It wasn't planned that way, but sometimes cool things happen on their own.
1) First, there was Divas' Night Out in October. This fantastic fundraiser at the Casino Regina raised $5500 for…Read more
