I'm making a NEW RECORD titled ACRES OF ELBOW ROOM this winter at the Banff Centre for Arts and Creativity in Alberta. In March of 2017 I was a resident artist there. I don't want to sound like a drunken fan - "Like dude, you changed my life" - but the experience did alter the songwriter in me. I can't pinpoint one specific moment but the experience as a whole created a definite line in the sand, marking how I used to write songs and how I do now.  It did a number on me and I wrote more than I bargained for. 

I want to take the 11 new songs I wrote during my time in Banff and return to the place that inspired them.  I’ve asked some incredibly talented people to join me. Jason Valleau on upright bass, Jon May on drums, Stephen Fletcher on Hammond and Scott Duncan on fiddle
