A return trip to Toronto and was grateful to be invited as featured artist at the 'No Band Required' Open Mic.  This involved an extended set of half an hour showcasing my songs at the beginning of the evening.

During my trip to Toronto, I was invited into the Song Talk Radio Studio to chat about two of my songs namely : 'Somewhere in the Mist' and 'Keeping the Score'.  The Three radio presenters delved into the nooks and crannies of the songwriting process as well as the inspirations behind the songs.  


Special thanks to Neel, Phil, Michael, Vanessa and the rest of the team at Song Talk Radio for inviting me onto the show.

A return to The Lodge was needed to continue work on the songs that will eventually be on the album.  It does mean of course that the album completion will now need to be pushed back until 2020.  Good things come to those who wait!
