HEALTH IN TORONTO
I am writing this from my sister's house in Ontario. Jenn, Dave, and I played the Toronto Film Festival, debuting six songs from HEALTH. Aside from a ghost in the keyboard, the show went really well. We then drove to Hamilton and played with Julie Dorion and she was (of course) wonderful. Hopefully we will avoid the hurricane and get home tonight. HEALTH recording continues this week. Above is a picture of us in Toronto and the article from the coast www.thecoast.ca that goes with it.
" Half of the Heavy Blinkers -- with Jenn Grant subbing for Ruth Minnikin, now there's a stylistic difference -- performed a slew of new songs hopefully from the fabled double album. Grant put together a lovely book of lyrics for herself (she only had a few weeks to learn the songs). She went to Value Village with her mom looking for the right sized book, picked a Winnie the Pooh volume and painted it red with sparkles, pasting the lyrics inside. It's quite the work of art. Sorry I didn't get a close-up."
