Did you know that the video for Pure Sunshine was filmed on Esson Lake in Bancroft on a sunny and very cold day, about -20 if I recall. The song was also written about a week I spent with friends at a cottage near Tory Hill. I think it's quintessentially Canadian to have a song about sunshine focus on winter. At the end of the video that's me trying very hard to open a bottle of bubbly in the freezing cold!
I hope you'll tune in this Thursday at 7:30pm , I will be a featured songwriter in the inaugural live show of this series. Produced by Elana Harte and Joanna Swan, this 10 week series features some of Canada's top songwriters. Here is the link for tickets, thank you for supporting your local musical heroes, and for your ongoing love of live music! xo
