Merry Xmas, friends!

Honing the magic of the season, I break my radio silence to bring you glad tidings. My voice is on the mend, and although I'm not quite at the point yet where I can make definite plans, this is still very good news. I've been seeing an excellent ENT and a passionate and caring SLP at Montreal General, who have both been helping me immensely to heal. My last vocal cord scope on December 15th showed excellent progress, and I go back in a month for another check up. I will keep everyone in the loop!

This has been an exhilarating, challenging, devastating, eye-opening and delicately beautiful year. The build-up of the album's release coupled with the let-down of having a serious vocal injury and having to cancel everything was an experience I wouldn't wish on anyone. With the blessing of time passed and thus gained perspective, I won't tell you that I think it "happened for a reason" or some bullshit like that. But I will say that there's significant insight to be gained from any heavy experience, and I will carry on into 2015 smarter, tougher and braver than ever.

In the meantime, here's a little video that Todd Elsliger and I did at TFO's studio in Toronto for BRBR. Acoustic 'It's Coming On', I'm very proud. 

Wishing you all a wonderful and relaxing holiday season. Joyeuses fêtes à tous le monde!!
