So last week saw the provincial moving of our lead singer, my brother Jason. After working together for 10+ years on music here in Edmonton he has decided to move to Nanaimo to further his education and get away from the frigid weather that Edmonton is known for, what this means for the future of the band is still up for debate. All I know is that I’m never going to stop writing and working on Living Illusion so that is a good sign for the few of you that actually follow the band.
Our last little weekend warrior tour in Lloyminster and Lethbridge was a good send off for Jay, and even though we did have a little acoustic show planned in Edmonton sadly we weren’t able to pull it together before Jason left. I’m doing my best now to not look at this as an end of an era but as the beginning of something new and exciting. There will definitely be a new dynamic style with the band moving forward.
Currently I’ve got a new acoustic guitar and Dave and I are working on new material that we’ll hopefully be able to start recording later this fall. I plan to write an EP worth of new songs all on acoustic to start and just see how that goes. We’re trying to move away from being so attached to writing things with a computer. And hell, I might even give some open mics a shot and get back into singing more again. Only time will tell.
With that, I just want to say thanks to all of you for your continued support and I hope to see you at one of our shows sometime soon.
