New Single at Radio, WCMA Nomination, New Addition to the Family!

Hello everyone! It’s been too long! The rumors are true! I have officially entered the realm of motherhood! What a trip! I can’t say that I mind waking up with my newborn daughter in the middle of the night instead of waking up to catch a flight or do disturbingly early morning radio lol. Although I do miss being out there, the hiatus has been an inspiration in itself. Just give me a few months and I’ll be back out there. I don’t think I could ever stop myself! Lol

I’m really excited to be nominated for a Western Canadian Music Award this year in the “Roots Solo Artist of the Year” category. I’m equally excited to be releasing another single to radio this week! “Never Try to Love You” depicts unconditional love in the sense that no matter how crazy things get, I am so lucky to have a love that is easy, versus a love that I have to try to keep afloat. Even through the most major life transition I have ever endured which is Motherhood, my partner if life in every way, John Antoniuk, has been my rock through and through. There may not be such a thing as a perfect love, but loving him, and our daughter, is perfect. I feel extremely blessed for the amazing run I had with this album and for the things that were born out of it. I really look forward to writing the next chapter of my music with my newfound inspiration! Hope you all enjoy the new single and video!



This Life of Mine (Official Video Link)

ICYMI, the video for the title track of my new album and recent single is out! I want to thank Dana-Marie Battaglia for capturing the recording experience for “This Life of Mine”. It was great to have you be a part of it all! Also to Matt Smith from Matt Braden Photo for putting it all together so beautifully! This one is very near and dear to me. Not only does it really capture and reflect the whole experience for me, it was the song we finished for my Grandfather who passed during the making of this album. He would’ve been proud! And he would have loved those alpacas as much as I do!

I want to give a huge thanks to the whole crew. My producer John MacArthur Ellis, Nick Stecz (percussion), My husband, band-mate and manager John Antoniuk, Jamie Prentice (engineer), Jesse Padgett and Michael Donley. It was an absolute pleasure working with you all! Thank you all for helping me make this record happen!

I also want to give a huge shout out to FACTOR Canada, Creative Saskatchewan, Sask Music, Rawlco, and the Saskatchewan Arts Board. I am incredibly lucky to be able to afford the opportunity to fulfill and share my artistic visions. Thank you all for your support!

Next up, Ontario/Quebec tour in November!
