Dec 15 – Hannover – Feinkostlampe
Dec 16 – Hamburg – Kleiner Donner
Dec 17 – Lübeck – Tonfink
Dec 19 – Berlin – Prachtwerk (Residency Concert w/ Daniel Freitag)

As well, here’s a little snippet of Ethiopia from the bedroom on the 4th floor overlooking the Spree.  Enjoy and bis bald/see you soon!

End of Album Cycle

Hello friends,   I’ve been home a week now. It’s always sad when another album cycle comes to an end (There will be a few solo or duo shows scattered here and there). This one for RUSSIAN DOLLS was by far the most adventurous yet. We got to see places like Corsica, the inside of a tour bus all around France, a fantastic living room in Brussels, Le Saguenay in Québec, and Bruno, Saskatchewan in -40˚ sunshine to name a few. I feel so damn lucky to be able to share / have shared the road with these folks: Kristina Koropecki, Emmanuel Serrus, Pete Pételle, Hugo Chaput, and Stéphan Petrocca. It was also the most ambitious cycle I’ve ever had with a move to Europe, a Masters program, and juggling the wishes of my loving family. Thanks to all of you who invited us into your homes or your ears. We would be literally nothing without you. I’m using “I” here, but I know when I say “Thank you”, it comes from all five of us. We’ll see you soon. Honest. Much amor :::   Dream team SMALL - L'Anse St Jean (Taken in L’Anse St Jean, QC – July, 2015)
