I just found out that Our Lady of Broken Souls was nominated for best Folk Album of 2007 by the Ottawa XPress!!!!
I'm completely stunned as I find myself in the company of Jim Bryson and Andrea Simms Karp (whose albums are among favorites of mine) for this award...
It sometimes takes me time to get over the surprise and just bask in the pleasure of these moments. And speaking of moments, I'll be sitting in with Melissa Laveaux for three songs at her last Ottawa show before she moves to France at the Mercury Lounge on Thursday, November 8. It is certain to be an amazing show and expect a sell-out crowd! And the CBC will be there to record the whole thing!
Speaking of Mel, she accompanied me on stage for a song at a Nuit Blanche event at the Drake Hotel in Toronto in September. Her friend Nadijah Robinson took some lovely photos!
