I was so fortunate to get to perform at the #Imagine October 20th show which took place at the Randolph Theatre on September 30th. It was humbling and exciting to share the stage with Emm Gryner, Sarah Slean, Whitehorse, Dave Bidini, Torqui Campbell, Caroline Brooks, Jason Collett, Charles Spearin, the Queer Songbook Orchestra, Lowell, Lizzie Powell, Damian Rogers, Matt Masters , Donovan Woods, Brave Shores, Joseph Boyden, Brigette De Pape, the Sadies and FEIST!!! It was also amazing to see so many people I respect, look up to and have grown up listening to bring together music and politics (or in the case of Joseph Boyden, books and politics,,,,,my parents have talked at great length about how they can’t wait until I am old enough to read his books. They made my Mom cry a lot. People seem to really LOVE his books.)
Anyway, September 30th was one of the best nights of my life although it was pretty intimidating playing with so many superstars. And I actually think that this movement has been part of the exciting wave of getting people out to vote against Stephen Harper. I can’t wait to wake up to a new and better Canada on October 20th.
Here is my song from the show. It is my newest original called Cartwheel:
And here is the video from the amazing participatory rendition of I Feel It All. Feist is so phenomenal and Lysh is the coolest on the guitar!
