NATION – Live in Halifax

Nick B and I have been looking forward to this since we began to dream about NATION in 2012. Halifax has a bit of a magic quality for me after being away for a number of years now. Seven actually. It was in the summer of 2012 in the back cafĂ© of Plan B on Gottingen street where Nick and I sat down to chat about the possibility of collaborating. We sat for probably around an hour drinking coffee and […]

Finally, this November, we got to a point where we’re in “beta” with the show, we’ve shown it to an audience and the thing ACTUALLY EXISTS! Huge. This month I’m working on recordings of the material for an album version which is really exciting. I’m planning for a showing in Lethbridge, Alberta, Canada in early 2015 with extensive touring to follow in […]
