Description

The Juno-nominated and two-time Western Canadian Music Awards winner's 3rd release.

"I continued to play anywhere I could, for whoever I could. Hundreds of shows were logged, and hundreds of thousands of kilometres were driven. My world turned into a dashboard, a radio, a guitar and a pen".

"I began to rub shoulders with my heroes. I traipsed across the stages of some of the country's finest music festivals. I've warmed up crowds for the likes of James McMurtry, Buffy Sainte-Marie, Taj Mahal, Richard Thompson, and John Hiatt. I found confidence, I began to learn how to captivate crowds, I leaned into the craft".

"Winter rolled into Winnipeg like a freight train. Brimming with the confidence of a child, I put my trust in a young producer from Maine named Sam Kassirer. I put pen to paper and I put the hammer down. I recorded rough takes of 30 plus songs and with Kassirer's help I whittled the list down to 10. It was an exercise in carefulness and intentionality. It needed to be traditional, contemporary, fresh and urgent in its scope. I sharpened the songs, I honed the narratives and the vision of the record became clear. We assembled a brilliant group of musicians and we pressed "record". The process was raw, honest, electric and pure fun. I put my faith in everyone at the table with me and revelled in the process".

"At its core Headwaters is about searching for the source of our desires, and the freedom that comes from understanding the ways in which the sources influence our directions. Rivers can't change where they begin, or where they run, neither can we change our histories or escape their influence on us. Headwaters is a collection of parables, hymns and manifestos, stories of love and loss, sadness and joy, threaded together by the search for an ultimate source. "Headwaters" is my third record in four years, and I'm as excited about music and song-writing as I've ever been".

"I'm 28-years-old, I'm a guitar player and a songwriter. Sometimes I preach, sometimes I rhyme. I know that I will never do anything but this. My world has turned into managers, agents, airports, festivals and promoters, but her source is still just a dashboard, a radio, a guitar and a pen.
