Yes, that’s Jen and Dennis staring back at you from The Mirror!
(See below for the current reflection.)

We are set with our plans for the Guelph and Toronto launch parties for our new album “The Mirror”! We have a special show in preparation for Friday, October 4 at the Heritage Hall in Guelph and at Toronto’s Burdock Music Hall on Sunday, October 6 (6-8pm matinée). Secure your ticket to the Burdock show by clicking here. We’ll have guest back-up vocalists Shannon Kingsbury and Tannis Slimmon (aka the collective “Shannis”) at the Guelph show, singing with Jennis as well as a few of their own songs. Drummer Tom Wolf will help us rock things up at both launches, along with his daughter Laurin and her partner Jason Maraschiello. They will be rocking some traditional African rhythms to get your booty shaking!

We’ve hired Sarah French Publicity to promote our new album. We’re super proud of it and feel we have far surpassed the quality of the first record with much higher production values and songs that had time to distill to their best form before capturing them in the studio.

We have a music video almost ready to premiere for the song “Sneak Past The Mirror”. We can hardly wait to share it with you all! Thanks to all our wonderful friends who took part in the filming and, especially, to videographer Olya Glotka for her fantastic work!

Thanks to Dean Drouillard for a splendid job mixing all FOURTEEN songs for the new album. Next up will be the mastering process and album graphic design. Meanwhile, we’ll be practicing up the songs that have yet to be performed live so that our audiences will enjoy a batch of new sounds from us when we return to the stage in spring.

Jennis is pleased to announce that we have drummer and dear friend Tom Wolf aboard so that Jennis can adapt to a wider range of venues. Duo shows can be more suitable for house concerts and small venues. With Tom, we can kick up the energy with a more dance party vibe. We enjoyed a great day of recording together, with 5 songs now having their bed tracks in the can.

Listening back to fresh tracks with Brian Hewson at Escarpment Sound. A fine facility with great rooms, top-notch equipment and a man who really knows how to use it. What could be more fun?!

We had a smooth, inspiring, productive day in the studios of Escarpment Sound on August 24, 2018. Bed tracks were recorded for five new songs with Tom Wolf on drum kit and percussion. Thank you to owner-engineer Brian Hewson for a fine facility and great work. The new album is gaining momentum!

A very well-equipped facility.

 We are super excited about this weekend — we have 3 shows at the Kitchener BluesfestOther than Rik Emmet‘s festival kick-off concert on Thursday night, everything else is FREE! So come have a blast of summer fun with us! Most exciting for Dennis and Jen is that Malian Tuareg band Tinariwen are playing at 5pm on Sunday right after our 4pm set. If you’ve not seen them, believe me, they’re worth a drive to Kitchener!

Saturday, August 11, 11pm B @ The Museum, 10 King St W
Sunday, August 12, 4pm (with Blackcat Bone) Bobby O”Brien’s, 125 King St W
