I Guess It’s Time To Go

Yesterday was the last full day of bootcamp. We had a listening party of the songs we all cowrote, had a party on a pontoon, wrote little notes for each other to take home and had an awesome jam in the smoking gazebo until the wee hours of the morning. It was a beautiful way…

I cried a lot today.

I’ve come to the conclusion that this place makes you feel almost every emotion on the spectrum. Today was challenging… but in the best way. We are told “it’s nothing personal” when our art isn’t well received. Whether it’s a troll on the internet, a radio station that won’t play your song, or the fact…

You Be You Be You Be You Be You

I’d like to believe that after my approximately 14,445 days on this earth I would have a confidence in who I am. I would walk tall and secure in my voice and body. But the reality is, I don’t. There are times that I do of course. Moments when I have a strut and swagger…

So much to share, so little wifi.

Boot camp 2018 has brought together an amazing group of people. Such a helpful and nurturing collection of artists. On this first day, as we all reconnect, many for the first time since orientation, more vehicles roll up to RockRidge kicking up dust into the already thick smokey BC air. We just finished writing with…

Adventure All Around

We started to record the song we wrote with Midnight Lights today. The song is called Set Me Free, but originally it was called Sweet Sweet Place featuring Without You. To be honest, only Mike ever called it that. The bed tracks were laid down with the world class incredible house band featuring Mike.  Notice…

Singing In The Bathroom

What an experience we are having! From early morning classes to late night studio sessions. The things we are learning will change our careers. Although it’s been busy we’ve managed to make some music in our downtime. We recorded a fun video with Michela Sheedy in the first of what we hope are many, bathroom…

Team Nimbus for the Win!

Nestled in the heart of a beautiful mountain landscape sits the amazing Rock Ridge Canyon, the setting for our Project Wild boot camp. This place is truly a hidden gem that I would encourage anyone to visit if they had an opportunity. I can’t think of a better place to gather musicians together to create…
