#MondayVibes #Definitions 

So I had a couple of people ask me “what the hell is a kitchen party“? So ladies and gentlemen please see the definition! 
and good news… By popular demand… We will be LIVE for this kitchen party on Instagram! So have your drinks, your “smokes”, and have your dancing shoes on, because @linsmoretavern @randyjamesdrummer @colinjamesgibson @4thmetricmusic are going to raise the roof! There will be a little sadness mixed in with the joy as you all know, and I’d like to say thank you for those that have sent such beautiful messages to me and my family during our time of loss. All the more reason I can go this week and do what I do - make some great music and connect with you all! In my sadness, your support and your love lifts me. 
So… Countdown is on everyone! And I’m gonna say it… First official Kitchen party in Toronto for the holidays! Are you ready?!?!

#ThursdayThoughts #suicide #Grief #Loss 

This is probably the hardest, and most personal post I’ve ever done. I’ve been sitting on the fence for the last week or so not even sure how to talk about this… Let alone post it, but to talk, is also to heal… And I have to be honest about what my family is going through. There are questions unanswered, trauma that is beyond immense, and a systemic system that has failed… Again. It breaks my heart that I not only have to deal with loss AGAIN this deep, but I also have to add to that a system that does not see “us“ in our pain and trauma. 

…in the last month, my family has dealt with an attempted suicide, a drug overdose, and a suicide. I post this beautiful picture of my nephew @morton9799 because it was his brother, my nephew, and this beautiful moment of grace right now is exactly what we need. His father, my brother, committed suicide 4 years ago, and although we are in shock feeling this type of sudden loss AGAIN,…. I feel the love and light around me through the sadness and I am grateful for the strength and insight it gives me. I am grateful for all my friends that are holding space for my family and I right now. And although these times are hard… Those that know me ….know I WILL RISE, and my family will RISE! I will sing, I will play, I will write and I will rejoice in love for the people that are here for all of us,….good times and bad.
And when I sing next week, it will be for any of us that need to be “broken open”, and to feel a lot of what we’ve gone through during Covid. Your stories and what you’ve been going through have been immense as well… But don’t worry - I got you. We got you …
