Let’s Hit the Road!

tour

Today we head out on our last tour of the year! This time we’re heading east to Winnipeg and back, playing a bunch of shows in Saskatchewan and Manitoba. I’ve been checking the weather, and it looks like it shouldn’t be that cold, but you never know with these prairie provinces, so I’m making sure to bring my winter gear just in case!

November 4th – Caronport, SK @ Briercrest
November 5th – Regina, SK @ The Artful Dodger
November 6th – Brandon, MB @ Lady of the Lake
November 7th – Winnipeg, MB @ West End Cultural Centre
November 8th – Gimli, MB @ Ship & Plough
November 11th – Winkler, MB @ House Show
November 12th – Sprauge, MB @ Sprauge River Inn
November 13th – Otterburne, MB @ Providence
November 16th – Saskatoon, SK @ Rock Bottom

Today is also significant because we find out if we’re in the Top 3 for the Peak Performance Project! It’s been an incredible five months journeying with eleven other bands from Alberta and honing our crafts, and this afternoon we find out the result of all our hard work. You can also hear the results by tuning in to the Peak’s online stream at 4pmMST. We’re going to be shaking in our boots, so it’ll make us feel way better if we know you’re all listening with us!

And lastly, our guitarist Josh has started a tumblr to document life as a Fairly Odd Folk. He has a great perspective of life on the road, and captures some of the funniest moments, so you should definitely check it out and follow him to see what adventures we get up to in the next two weeks.

To our prairie friends, hope to see you on the road, and to everyone else, stay warm and well!

Until next time,
Lauren.

Where the Ocean Meets the Sky: EXCLUSIVE STREAM!

ocean & sky

We are SO close to having our new DVDs, and we couldn’t be more thrilled to see this project finally coming together. Thank you to everyone who has ordered a copy of Where the Ocean Meets the Sky. We’re all sold out of the Pender Packages, but you can still order a copy of the DVD HERE.

Last week we gave everyone who has pre-ordered an exclusive link to watch all the songs from the DVD, and we’ve decided to make that link public for a limited time! Check it out here:

The only thing missing is the 30 minute behind-the-scenes featurette, The Journey, and a few other special features that you can only get by purchasing the DVD. It was an amazing thing to see it all happen from start to finish, and we couldn’t have done it without your support along the way!

We hope you enjoy the videos, and have a great weekend and safe Halloween-ing!

Cheers,
Lauren.

Every Good Thing

When we were at the Peak Performance Project Boot Camp this summer, we got to do a songwriting collaboration with BC artist Jon Bryant. We emailed a few ideas back and forth before boot camp, then on the first day we had one hour to sit down with our producer Russell Broom and do some pre-production and refine the song so it was ready to record. On the Friday and Saturday of camp we had four hours each night to record from 10pm-2am, and then Sunday night we listened to all the songs. It was awesome to see how all the bands collaborated and came up with some unique and amazing songs.

So without further adieu, here is the song we wrote with Jon Bryant, Every Good Thing.

Next week we find out whether we made it into the Top 3 for the Peak Performance Project, so stay tuned…it’ll be an exciting day!

Cheers,
Lauren.

The Unexpected Tour

Hey everyone!

I hope you’re all having an amazing fall season. It’s been unseasonably warm here in Alberta; I think usually by now I’ve brought out the winter coats and toques and mittens, but we’re holding on to the warm weather like nothing else!

I wanted to give you all an update on our fall touring schedule! Josh and I started rehearsing yesterday and it’s been really interesting taking the songs and paring them down to just what the two of us can play. We’ve been experimenting with new sounds and versions of the songs, and I hope that you’ll love it as much as I am!

We’ll be leaving next Wednesday for a week long tour up to Northern BC and Alberta, and here are the dates:

October 15th – Sylvan Lake, AB @ Wave’s Coffee House
October 16th – Peace River, AB @ TBA (House Show)
October 17th – Rolla, BC @ The Rolla Pub
October 18th – Dawson Creek, BC @ Diamond Willow Retreat
October 20th – Fort St. John, BC @ The Lido
October 21st – Grande Praire, AB @ Tito’s
October 22nd – Edmonton, AB @ Mercury Room
October 23rd – Brooks, AB @ Tumbleweed Theatre

If you’re in any of these places, we’d love to see you at a show! We’ll be posting another quick tour out to Manitoba and back in the next little bit, so stay tuned for that!

Cheers,
Lauren.
