Today, LUCID is officially released into the universe, now available on the internet in digital and physical forms. There will also be CDs available at my performances, at Obsolete Records in Halifax, and the Box of Delights Bookstore in Wolfville. The album comes with a booklet with some literature about the music and composers. I want to again send my love to all of the people who contributed to this project: Ken Shorley, chief recorder mixer magic person; dear composer friends – Liam Elliot, Adam Langille, and Lucas Oickle; Ellen Gibling, who lent her beautiful harp soul for one track; and Ross Koopmans, album masterer. I hope you enjoy the album, and if not, I aim to do better next time.

Wild time keeps getting wilder…New Hermitage is back in the recording studio this week and we’ll be performing at the Halifax’s Open Waters Festival on January 5 (minus Ross, who will be in Chile for three months). More info about the festival and tickets here.
AND, I am very honoured to have received a special award from the Nova Scotia Talent Trust this year– The Yue Lih and Marion Kuo Award. Goodness gracious, I’m featured in this Chronicle Herald article: http://thechronicleherald.ca/artslife/1529275-local-talent-awards-about-passion-and-support-not-just-money
Cheerful winter tidings to you,
