During March of 2020 our world changed. No longer were we free to travel, be with our friends and other restrictions were enforced to keep us safe.
Around this time, live music died. It will be a slow process getting live music back on the scene, especially locally. Restaurants and pubs have a small margin of profit and for that reason only certain ones have continued with live music recently.
Bands will be the acts hardest hit. Simply because of the number of people taking up one area and also the fact that all will have to be paid, will make this a daunting task in the future.
As a solo artist I will be playing again in the not too distant future and when allowed I plan on touring the Maritimes. Nova Scotia and P.E.I. in particular.
I have been writing songs during the period of pandemic and I'm very pleased with them. I will be recording most of them for my next album. Songs about real life and the inspiration that comes from that.
I am especially excited about one song in particular about Nova Scotia that I wrote. With all of the events that have happened to those who live in the province and others away from their N.S. home, I needed to write something that was uplifting and gives us hope. I have composed a song with inspiration, hope and love and made this tune roll along with that familiar Maritime drive that keeps us wanting to sing songs over and over.
I will be releasing this tune along with many more as the summer of 2020 unwinds. I'm hoping when we're free to visit the provinces that I can get down to the Maritimes and perform.
I lived in Greenwood N.S. as a young boy. I toured the province along with Cape Breton in my early twenties. Since then I have visited many times and now with all that has happened I feel the need to go share time with folks in Nova Scotia, the land that I love.
