It has been quite a while since my last blog post. Did you wonder where I went? Maybe you didn’t, but for anyone who did, I’m going to tell you. In 2016 I started having health problems that affected my breathing and caused pretty bad coughing fits, which prevented me from being able to sing for quite some time. As that issue was beginning to resolve, my boyfriend proposed and I went full steam ahead into wedding planning. For anyone who has planned a wedding, I think you know how very time consuming…
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!

A week from now I'll be debuting a new song during my performance at The Capitol in Regina, SK with the help of my good friend (and talented singer-songwriter) Kara Golemba. We've been getting together for rehearsals over the last few weeks, with our final rehearsal yesterday afternoon. All set to duo the heck out of my new song on July 7th. Me & Kara at our last rehearsal.
Not all these guitars will be used in the performance. That's just a lot of guitars.
I know I haven't been around much for the last while (since the beginning of this year to be exact) and that's because my year started off with some pretty serious breathing problems (has anyone else ever noticed how amazing it is to breathe?!) that made me his the pause button on music (and a lot of other things) for a while. (This might seem odd, but when you can't really breathe it's a little hard to sing. Who knew, right?)
Finally, after 4 long months, my breathing is back to normal and one week from…Read more
