10 million big ones.
Climbing charts and breaking hearts.
….okay maybe not the last part.
A while back, my music surpassed 10 million streams! WHAT? That number is somewhat impossible for my brain to fully grasp - other than I’m reminded to be grateful for this community that has supported, pushed me forward and most of all, listened. It’s crazy to me that I write these little songs and people actually listen to them.
SINGING AND PLAYING!
I spent this past week singing and playing music with close friends - Jay Stewart and Ryan McAllister. We jammed through this new album of mine. It was the first time Stewie and I had played these songs since we recorded it last winter with Jer Friesen by our side.
So this time we did it without the bass guitar.
And it was strangely calming (Ryan did hold down some low end at points during the jams, but often it felt good just leaving the space that Jer had filled).
Throughout the process, Shane from Firecanvas captured us on the good camera and you’ll be able to see that soon. But until then here are a few shots we took on our phones that I’ve put together. A little BTS as they say…
SO WHAT’S UP DOC? It’s all Bad Feelings.
The official video is coming your way! Shot in and around my house, I call it the ‘WTF? Bad Feelings Music Video’. It involves a seance in my attic, a guitar solo in a hockey rink and multiple JJ’s (JJ/JJ/JJ). I’ll share it with the Record Club first. Aren’t you glad to be a part of it?
Also, BF continues to climb the CBC Music Top 20 chart. Currently it’s sitting at #11. Mind helping me push it into the top ten? Give it as many votes as you possibly can!
Happy Sunday and a Merry Christmas.
More to come,
