Happy Summer Everyone!

I had taken some time off of music to start off this year.  While it might seem all glamourous and fun being a performing artist, there is a lot that goes on behind the scenes that really takes the sheen off.  After a few months without so much as touching my guitar I decided it was time to get back in shape.  Shortly after that, some opportunities came up to perform which helped get the fire burning again.

And then something unexpected happened.  My oldest daughter Emma, having spent a couple of years with the Kamloops Symphony School of Music, learned some parts to a few of my songs and we started jamming.  Her teacher, Cvetozar, initiated things when he noticed I was playing my guitar outside in the sun while she was taking her lessons.  He offered to help her create parts for some songs. 

With summer coming, I like to participate in the KCBIA Live @ Lunch program, where performers setup in the streets of downtown Kamloops to perform for a couple of hours throughout the week.  It's a great, low pressure, casual gig and I figured it would be the perfect opportunity for Emma to joing Chris and I forming a fun new trio.  Things went great and I'm proud to say we've performed together three times now with great responses from the people that walked by to listen.  We were even offered opportunities to perform at other venues which we are looking into.

These following videos were recorded live during these performances.  Enjoy!
