This Is My Canada
I write songs about Canada including “This Is My Canada/Mon cher Canada” which I sang for our Olympic teams in Salt Lake City (2002) & Athens Greece (2004).
The song has now been re-recorded with Lead Canadian Artists who, combined, have 6 Grammy & 13 Juno Awards. They were accompanied by some of Canada’s finest session players, a 30-member youth choir and there was a special appearance by an indigenous dancer in the HD music video. The launch will be announced beginning of May 2017.
My original version also includes, “I’m A Canadian, Eh”, “I Love Canada (it’s winter that I hate), “Canadian Olympian/Olympien canadiens” as well as “Canada’s Really Really BIG” — and try to sing along with the last chorus!
In 2016 I premiered my new concert series “This Is My Canada Presents” showcasing fabulous well-loved talented musicians including Marie-Lynn Hammond (Stringboard), Andy Forgie, The Starpainters & Tom Leighton with Conrad Kipping.
I was the VIA Rail Artist on Board in 2014 from Toronto to Vancouver & all the way back – 3 shows/day for 3.5 days in both directions on a moving train. See my photos & blogs & new songs as a result.
Toured throughout the Maritimes with my musical theatre show “I’m An Acadian-Canadian, eh!” and also went on a photographic adventure in Newfoundland which resulted in yet unreleased new song, “You’re Gonna Love Newfoundland and Labrador”.
