Very excited to announce the launch of Canada Covers’ first playlist, a tribute to Tom Petty, launched today on what would have been his 68th birthday. My song ‘American Girl’ holds a dear place in my heart as I used to borrow my mom’s Pontiac and drive to fast around Oshawa listening to the original.
This playlist features 23 Canadian artists playing their interpretations of Petty’s tunes. Mine was produced by my good friend Alex Ernewein, who I’ve been collaborating with on and off since he was 17 years old. Check this playlist on Spotify and Youtube!

Some of you may not know that my mother Lenore is an accomplished songwriter. We will be presenting her 4th Album Every Once and a While at the Whitby Centennial Theatre in Durham Region on Saturday, September 22nd. This will be our first time sharing a bill and at a lovely soft-seat theatre, no less! This will basically be the cutest thing I’ve ever done and a great way to celebrate a brilliant catalogue of songs by the artist, Lenore.
I was recently a guest on Friendly Rich’s Industry Tactics Podcast. We talk about my upcoming record These Little Things, my earlier works and my current perspectives on writing. Rich asked me to sing at the end and the busy cafe cleared out pretty fast. Rich likes to push buttons, check him out!
