Memories from the Road: Fall 2016

I've been back in Toronto from tour for two weeks now, and it feels good to be home, but I'm missing the road terribly! 

We were so lucky and grateful to have been welcomed with open arms by so many generous and hospitable hosts, venue owners and friends. Thank you so much for all of your support!

And we met some AWESOME musicians while on tour. The next time you're looking for some new music to listen to, check these people out!
