It’s been TOO long!
Hey guys! Happy FALL! I have to say, this is one of my favorite times of the year (other than Christmas, of course) It’s hard to put my finger on exactly what make this time of year so special to me, but I am certain that the crisp Fall air, chilly nights and the fall fashion have a lot to do with it!
First off, perhaps you are wonder where I have been? I know, I know I’m sorry for falling off the radar! The truth is that I’ve really had so much going on. So many incredible and exciting things happening in my life. I’ve been really busy working on new music collaborations with some of the most talented DJ’s I know. I’ve also been working on some new styles and sounds that I’m excited to share I have a good feeling that you will love my most recent projects!
A few days ago, I did an interview with a hilarious fellow Canadian, Bryan Cox. He has a great show on XM/SIRIUS SATELLITE radio called “Hey, Get Off Of My Lawn”. We did a quick 5 minute interview where he asked me about everything from Broadway to my transition into solo and DJ tracks to my thoughts on EDM. I posted the interview on my press page. Let me know what you think about it.
In other news, I will be heading back to Broadway to once again join my family at Rock Of Ages in late October! Keep up with my twitter for those exact dates:) I also recently shot another episode of NBC’s SMASH! As usual, it was such a great experience and I’m sure you guys are gonna love it!
I also have a new project that I’m going to be doing with an amazing jean line called DL1961. You can find DL1961 at several retailer locations including Denim Habit in NY and Kitson in LA. I was asked to dance in their NY fashion week show a few weeks ago. Let me tell you, I channeled my inner Giselle, it was like living my super model runway fantasy! Being on a runway with (what seemed like hundreds) of camera bulbs flashing is a totally different rush then being on stage or in front of the camera. It was so much fun and definitely a once in a lifetime opportunity. After the show, Sarah Ahmed, the talented designer and director of the line, asked me to be a contributing blogger for their website. I’m a huge fan of the jeans and so excited to jump on board! I’ll let you guys know when my first blog with DL1961 is up:)
Enough with the shop talk (well sort of).. One of the shiniest highlights of the past few months was my trip to Miami! Specifically my experience at LIV. For anyone who doesn’t know, LIV is not only one of the top 5 nightclubs in America, but it also has one of the greatest sound systems I have ever heard! Earlier this summer I collaborated with Cedric Gervais(who is one of their resident DJ’s) on a couple songs and he happen to be spinning at LIV one of the nights I was there. As I was dancing the night away, a news song came through the speakers and I thought to myself “Yesss…this songs is amazing”…then it hit me “Oh my God! That’s my voice and that’s our song he’s playing”. I immediately ran like Flo Jo to the DJ booth. To sum it up, I was in heaven!!! To hear our song being played at LIV, on that sound system, with 800 people jumping up and dancing to a song I helped create, was truly one of the most exhilarating moments of my life. I’m so proud of this song and look forward to our upcoming release of it!
Other than working, I got to spend a lot of time with my family this past summer in Vancouver and Ottawa. For anyone who doesn’t know me personally, my family means the world to me and I feel so fortunate to be able to hop on a plane and see them! I remind myself that life is so short and so precious and it’s never too often to tell a friend or family member that you love them.
So that’s my big update! I hope everyone is happy and healthy! Please look out for new music coming in the new couple months! And here are a few pictures from the last couple months of my adventures!
