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!

Leaping into the Leap Year!

To Derek Bachman, my Grandpa Garry Thurber, Marlene Antoniuk and all the spirits in my life. I miss you all so much, sometimes it actually hurts. But I am comforted by the fact that you have been with me through this everyday. I am so thankful for the lessons I was fortunate enough to receive from you and will carry that with me always.
