Well we are closing in on the end of our Winter Western Tour and it's been a cold but lovely time, crossing this great country. We have kept warm thanks to some wonderful warm hearts and a few swank hotels with hot tubs. Big thanks to everyone who's come out to a show... we have just 4 left! Join us tonight in Lethbridge, Wednesday in Winnipeg, Friday in Thunder Bay and Saturday in Sault Ste. Marie!
April will bring us home to Toronto and soon after settling back in and sleeping off the long drive, it's back to the studio for me! I'm very excited to be recording an album completely dedicated to my piano-driven songs. Working with multi-talented, multi-instrumentalist, Derek Downham, this record is going to be a departure from what we've been doing recently, while getting closer to my roots - back to my original instrument. We'll be recording throughout April and May with the release date TBD.
Until then, you can find me this spring singing with the Ole Fashion at Opera Bob's and The Cadillac Lounge, or with the Sarah Burton Band at Dakota Tavern.
May the spring melt your winter blues away!!
Sarah and the boys!
After almost 2 years of shows together and live collaborations, the Ladies in Waiting have finally created something together that you can take home for a little taste sampler of all of us. This debut Ladies in Waiting release comes in the form of a love-song compilation, entitled, Lovesick. Just in time for Valentine's Day, the album is available NOW for online purchase, and in true Ladies in Waiting fashion, we will be releasing it in style, with a Valentine's themed concert at Lula Lounge.
Hosted by the amazing and one and only, Warren McGooey (known for his humour, his stage diving, and his ability to hustle the crowd), the night will feature performances by Lovesick Ladies, Cindy Doire, Andrea Ramolo, Melanie Brulee, Tricia Foster, Kristin Sweetland and yours truly, plus many special extras, including a burlesque dance performance by the amazing Pastel Supernova.
This is an early show, and reservations are recommended. Come early for dinner and the best seats in the house!
For more information and tickets, plus special pre-order prices on LOVESICK, click HERE.
Happy Valentines Day and hope to see you all there!
Happy new year!!!
It may seem that I've led a quiet fall season after spending a vigorous summer touring the country. In fact, I have been quite busy, getting ready for an even busier 2013! 2012 ended with 2 pieces of great news in particular: I've been lucky enough to join the cast and crew for another great run of John Cameron Mitchell's acclaimed Glam-Rock musical, HEDWIG AND THE ANGRY INCH, and I've been awarded a considerable grant from FACTOR to record my next album. I'm very excited and grateful for both of these things!
I'll share more with you on the upcoming album later, but for now, let's get our Glam on!
Opening Tonight - HEDWIG AND THE ANGRY INCH (By John Cameron Mitchell and Stephen Trask)
@ THE DRAKE HOTEL January 9th - 27th

Don't miss this amazing show! We have been working our butts off on this and it's an unforgettable story.
Wow!! So, we hit that $6000 goal and passed it by one beautiful dollar! Thank you so much to everyone who pre-purchased an album, donated money, or helped out by passing the word along!! I truly appreciate it! We are now in the very final stages of this album -- the mastering is being completed TODAY by the amazing Joao Carvhalo and tomorrow we ship it off for manufacturing! The T-shirts are getting done as a write this, and the tour is going to be underway in just shy of 2 weeks! Amazing.
Help us celebrate and kick-off the Fire Breathers tour with a very special full-band plus lots of guests show TOMORROW night at the Dakota Tavern. Our friends Meanwood will be opening up the night with their haunting outlaw folk music, and joining me on stage will be Jay Swinnerton, Luke Stackhouse and Pat Phillips (fresh off the road with Kayla Howran), the Scarlett Jane girls, Jenny Allen and Paul Reddick! Seriously, amazing!!
It all starts at 10 p.m. and goes right til 2 a.m. Don't miss it!
Today is an exciting day as we launch our crowdfunding campaign for our upcoming album, Fire Breathers!
We've already begun recording and it sounds awesome! I can't wait to finish it, but first we need to raise a little money to get the rest of it done. Please have a look at our Indiegogo campaign, and donate if you can. Please sure to leave comments and pass it along to your networks and friends. Every bit counts!!
If you want to help us out in another way, or with a personal cheque or cash donation, feel free to contact me at email@example.com to make arrangements.
