Summer is Coming!

May 30th, 2015

Hey Y’all!

We just wrapped up our nearly 3 month long tour of North America. We hit a ton of states from the midwest to the west coast and then all across Canada.  Thank you all you folks who came out to the shows, we had a blast seeing old friends and making new ones all over. Where Evil Grows has been doing great, getting lots of airplay and reviews and lots of copies are out there now. If you haven’t picked up your own copy, check it out on iTunes or CDBaby or just drop us a line, we’d love to get you one.


As you may have noticed, Summer is coming and that means, you guessed it, more tour dates! Summer schedule is now up with a few more to come…..Check out the festivals and clubs we’ve got coming for you and spread the word to your friends, would love to see you all out there!

We gotta hit the road, till next time!

JUNO Award Nomination and New Album Pre-Sale

January 27th, 2015
Hey Everybody!

We just found out that our latest album WICKED, has been nominated for a JUNO AWARD!  For our Non-Canadian friends, this is the Canadian version of the Grammy Award.  We are all incredibly excited and couldn’t be happier to have our album recognized.  As many of you know, we travelled to Austin, Texas to work with Billy Horton at his studio Fort Horton and we’d like to give Billy a big Thank You for all of his faith and hard work on this project.  Although we all put our hearts into Wicked, Lindsay wrote the majority of the material on this album and arranged all of the songs including the two covers chosen and really spearheaded the idea of working with Billy at all.  It couldn’t have went better, Thank you Lindsay!  We’d like to congratulate all the other nominees in our category as well!  The Junos will be held March 15th, 2015 in Hamilton, Ontario.

Now, onto new business.  As you know we’ve just finished a new album again recored with Billy at Fort Horton.  Many of you had interested in a Pre-Sale for the release so we’ve setup a PayPal service for just that.  Simply click the “Buy Now” button below to Pre-Buy the new album and we’ll ship an advanced copy signed by all of us right to your door as soon as it is available.

Be sure to include your shipping address in your order!

“Wicked” Summer Tour and more!

May 12th, 2014

Well, we’ve returned from the USA after a great run through 12 states!  Big thanks to everyone who came out to see us or spread the word as we ventured through some new territory.  Some of the best shows ever were down there!

Wicked has been in rotation on hundreds of stations around the world and was just recently featured by House of Blues Radio as the “Blues Breaker of the Week” as well as a #1 charting on the Baker’s Dozen Blues Charts.  Big thanks to all the stations and DJs playing the new material.  We feel as if it’s the best we’ve ever sounded.



Anyone who’s seen us live lately may have noticed we have made an addition to the band.  Jesse Whiteley has joined as a permanent member on Piano.  Make sure you give him a warm welcome when you see him!

We will be returning to the Central United States in the fall but first we have a Cross Canada Spring/Summer Tour coming your way!  Check out all the dates on the GIG PAGE for details.  Lots of festivals and some clubs as well!  Very excited to return to some of our old favourites and stop in on some new venues/festivals as well.

Spread the word to your friends, we’ll be making stops in almost all the major centres across Canada over the next few months.

See y’all out there!

Return from WA state and Summer Tour dates announced!

June 4th, 2013

After we wrapped up our Cross-Canada tour in April we headed west again….but this time we went into the USA and visited Montana and Washington State.  And did we ever have a great time!  Headlining both the Untapped Blues Festival (Kennewick, WA) and Sunbanks Rhythm and Blues Festival (Electric City, WA) were a dream.  What a great bunch of festival goers!

Here’s a shot from our set at Sunbanks…
