Hello, world!

It's been at least a few months since we last saw each other and I'm ready to come see you again! Just a quick note here to say thanks to everyone who sent their love over the summer; that my time in the Similkameen valley/time-warp has been rife with inspiration; that no, I miss you more; that my mind and body have never felt healthier; and that I'm drifting off to sleep every night World Atlas in hand dreaming up my next move and relishing the thought of the open road as it beckons anew. 

Check back soon for dates across Canada, Belgium, Germany and Italy.... In the meantime, enjoy some music!!! ----------------------------------------->

Written over the course of a year-long road trip across Canada and recorded in a cabin in overlooking Dyer's Bay on the Bruce Peninsula, POSTCARDS is Cougars in America's 2nd full-length album now available online and sold as a series of postcards with download codes at all up-coming concerts. Each song is a picture of a moment on this trip. Special thanks to Patrick Lima for providing the cabin, to Erik Schoepen for giving the sweet sounds of his dobro, lapsteel, mandolin, resonator and electric guitars to all of these songs, and to the countless souls who offered a bed, a meal, a smile, a song, a story or a slice of cheesecake that gave me the courage to keep going.
