"Forget about your life situation for awhile and pay attention to your life...your life situation exists in time-your life is now"...Eckhart Tolle
I have released a new CD, called `Look for the Sun Vol. 1 a collection of previously recorded material from my four CD’s, with three new tracks that I recorded with John Reishman and the Jaybirds.
In May, my song `Bad Medicine’ was a finalist in the 2014 Calgary Folk Festival song contest. This is the fifth time I’ve had a song in the finals.
`Bad Medicine’ was inspired by Judge John Reilly’s book Bad Medicine: a judge’s struggle for justice in a First Nations Community, and after visiting the graveyard of the Stoney Nakoda. Mr. Reilly has asked to include the lyric's in his upcoming book, `Bad Judgement'.
“The song is a brave and unflinching engagement with the colonial legacy of suicide and addiction on local first nations peoples”. Katherine Binhammer
