Just Imagine CD Launch Tour – Tickets on Sale

webbanner CD ReleaseI’m very excited for the release of my new English and French albums, “Just Imagine” and “Imagine” this fall.  Starting at the end of September, I will be touring BC, Alberta and Ontario with the Backyard Band to launch my new albums. Check out the list below for the tour schedule and ticket details. (Visit my show calendar for schools that I’ll be visiting while on tour.)

Being a dad has been the best life-changing experience and has really changed how I write music for kids. These songs were inspired by my three-year-old daughter, Ella, and the things that she’s most into now…like colouring, swimming, animals and trains. I’ve also written some songs dedicated to her, like “Ella’s Umbrella,” “Daddy Daughter Day” and “Daddy’s Lullaby.”

But I’ve also written some rockin’ blues/country tunes like “Stampede” about a bunch of crazy stampeding animals and “Chuggada Choo” about a boy who likes playing with his wooden train set. One of my favourites is the spoof rock song, “Trikers,” about a cool “gang” of preschools who cruise the neighbourhood on their trikes wearing temporary  tattoos!

There’s also some fun dance numbers like “Mama Samba,” featuring a drum break with 12 Brazillian percussion instruments, and the reggae tune, “Eat a Plum, Yum Yum” about eating different kinds of fruit.

It was also an amazing experience to work with the Juno award-winning Canadian Folk producer and musician Steve Dawson on these albums. It’s been a dream of mine since I first started playing guitar in high school to one day record an album with Steve. For those who are fans of Steve, you’ll notice his sublime guitar playing on my albums!

I hope my music sparks kids’ imaginations so they can create a future that is inspiring and fulfilling!
