NewSong Contest, Summer Travels, and an Upcoming UK Tour… 0

Sailing fun...

What a summer… I played a bunch of shows, taught an amazing songwriter’s workshop, connected with friends and family, celebrated with my dear friend Mel at her wedding (the wedding band ROCKED!), tried sailing for the first time (thank you Scott & Janet!), and squeezed in a wee bit of down time…  Now I’m home assembling all my ducks, getting ready to head across the pond for a UK Teaser Tour.  Can’t wait!

Some other exciting news…  I recently found out that I’m a Mountain Stage NewSong Contest regional finalist, and if I win in my region I get to go to NYC in October to showcase in the final round!  SO fun!  :)   The NewSong contest is all about discovering great artists, and I feel immensely honoured to be one of the regional finalists.  You can help by voting for me!  Just click on the link below and share it with your friends.  There’s a great live video you can check out too…

On the album front, we’re on the home stretch!  Yahoooo!  It’s currently being mixed and it’s sounding so beautiful.  Soon it will be in your hands and on your iPods  :)

There was a dark cloud this summer — Canada is grieving the loss of one of its fine leaders, Jack Layton.  His Letter to Canadians is beautiful… Please read it.  Thank you, Jack, you will be missed.

Here’s to cooler evenings, campfires, bikerides in the sun, amazing friends, safe journeys, and hope for all of us…

Love Cara
