Mel’s August Update

                                             Mitch and I perform at Cross Currents Cafe in Bolton

Dear friends,

Summer is almost through and I’ve played outdoor concerts, festival shows and returned to Bolton as a feature for their fabulous Cross Currents Cafe series.  And I’m excited to announce I have another performance at Hugh’s Room coming up. Here’s the skinny! (do people even say that anymore?)


The great thrill of playing for a second time at Toronto’s premier listening room,  Hugh’s Room,  will be here before  long. I’ll be part of a songwriter’s circle on Tuesday, October 9th, and they tell me I will be in good company!  Also, on Sunday October 14th, Mitch and I will have the pleasure of playing at the Bala Cranberry Festival!

Live video from Corks and Platters:

Soon there will be a few songs from my performance at Corks and Platters in Toronto available for viewing here on my website. I was so lucky to have the opportunity to play my second solo acoustic show at this cozy wine bar in Toronto.  Funny how well a glass of wine goes with live music.


I’ll soon be releasing a second remix EP, “Refresher Vol. 2”, remixed by the fabulous Mitch Girio,  mostly for fun, but who knows – many of you may enjoy the fresh mixes! It’s allowing me to hear the old tracks in a whole new way, while I work away at my next full length album which won’t be released until 2019. Also Mitch, Hunky Pete, Lucky Pete and I have been putting together a folk EP which will be released this fall featuring tracks like ‘Lilian’ and ‘What You’re Selling’.


If you are one of my patrons, there will be a work in progress version of the video for ‘Kiss Me Like You Mean It’, available for your viewing pleasure on my Patreon page this later weekend. It is being edited by Nick Lim and features yours truly and clips from some of your favorite classic movies.  Also, lots of fun stuff avails if you decide to become a patron, so I hope you’ll check it out. For those of you who support me through Patreon, I could not be more thankful for your love and support.

Pure joy at Cross Currents Cafe.

Hugs and Mushy stuff!
