I'm in a folk duo called Gathering Sparks. Here's a lyric video I made for a song on our new album, written about the winter solstice. It won a 2019 Folk Music Ontario "Songs From the Heart" award!
YOU'RE MY SISTER
Here is me with my Gathering Sparks bandmate Eve Goldberg. This song is on our new album, and we were performing at our Guelph CD release show on November 5, 2019.
CARRY YOU HOME
At the end of his life, my dad said he had "no regrets." He also used to come to a regular singalong gig I did, and he requested Swing Low, Sweet Chariot - Every. Single. Time. Love you, dad!
COME TOGETHER (Beatles cover)
I won a 2015 Independent Music Award (Best Cover Song) for this! We shot the video in one afternoon, and I didn't tell the band in advance that we were going to...well...I won't say it out loud in case you haven't watched yet. Let's just say, that thing that we do later in the video? Totally unrehearsed.
DRIVING HOME lyric video
This is the first track from my 2014 CD. I'm playing piano and singing, Eve Goldberg is singing harmony, Jason Fowler is playing guitar, Jesse Turton is playing bass, and Adam Bowman is on drums. I shot the video on the TransCanada highway on the way to Red Rock, Ontario, in August 2014.
STAY WITH ME (live at the Joint Cafe)
Here's a live version of the title track from my 2014 CD Stay With Me, filmed at the Joint Cafe in Guelph in the summer of 2016. Jason LaPrade on dobro.
TESTIFY (live with Some Honey)
This live version of Testify features special guests Some Honey on backup vocals. They only had one rehearsal in the bathroom before the show! Jason LaPrade is on guitar.
TEND ME LIKE A GARDEN lyric video
One of my earliest songs, my first recording (EP in 2010), and my first lyric video. You'll hear me on piano and vocals, Tannis Slimmon doing harmony vocals and the beautiful improv vocal in the final double chorus, Norm Liota on guitar, and Jesse Turton on upright bass. Additional harmony vocals by Katherine Wheatley, Sam Turton and Shane Philips. Video by moi.
STORM BLOWIN' live
Performing "Storm Blowin'" at Sam Turton's CD release show (Nov 4, 2011) with Sam on slide guitar, Adam Bowman on drums, Jesse Turton on bass and Tannis Slimmon, Laura Bird, and Katherine Wheatley on harmony vocals. Video taken by Brad Mayes.
AS DEEP AS LOVE lyric video
This song is a Jane Lewis & Sam Turton co-write. You'll hear me on piano & vocals, Sam on guitar, Jesse Turton on bass, Adam Bowman on drums. Doug Wilde added the strings, and I made the video!
