CD Release hits #1 on Folk Chart

It’s been a good couple of weeks for your friend, the musical motorcycling mama… I had my CD Release show on Sept 25, and it was a beautiful Saturday afternoon in Lake Bonavista.  Everyone sat out in lawn chairs in the soccer field just down the street, and I knew almost everyone in attendance.  The … Continued

Live Rehearsal Wednesdays

Now that the Isobreaker jams are on a break, I’m going to be doing live rehearsal shows on Wednesday evenings from now until September 25, my tentative CD Release show date for Calgary.  I’ll be testing new material, getting audience feedback, and working out kinks in the show.  If you’d like to attend, these small … Continued

COVID Cancellations!

Well, it appears all outdoor and indoor gatherings are cancelled. What are you gonna do?  I am thinking to play an un-promoted pop-up near a skating rink or two at some point this winter; weather and COVID permitting.  If I do, I will live stream it to my Facebook page, so follow me there! Thanks … Continued

Outdoor Shows and Holiday Carolling

Well, Gary has done it again.  Not only did the generator he got me in the spring start my performing all sorts of pop-up shows in unusual places (let alone leading to the entire Community Stompede!), he has now gotten me portable heaters, so I can play outside, even in the winter!  I will soon … Continued

Album Release Show Delay

In Jan 2020, I recorded an album in Nashville, paradoxically because I wanted to work with a specific Canadian Producer, Steve Dawson, who resides there! The album included ONE cover tune.  Notably, the fellow who wrote the song, Newfoundland’s legendary Ron Hynes, was someone I’d met a few years ago at an ECMA week, and … Continued

Spreading Community Spirit

Howdy all! After producing and performing in weekly Community Stompede events in Lake Bonavista for 3 months, Gary and I are now taking the show to other communities.  For those of you who haven’t heard about it yet, Community Stompede is an initiative to get a community’s talents out of living rooms and basements and … Continued

Stompede for Stampede!

After performing pop-up shows when the pandemic started, I felt like I needed more horsepower from other musicians to spread the spirit around!  You may already know Gary and I started a community entertainment series called “Community Stompede”!  We’re helping communities organize their own entertainment to make up for the cancellation of so many festivals … Continued

Gary and I are fully, completely and utterly thrilled at how Lake Bonavista’s FIRST Community Stompede went today!   THANK YOU to our wonderful team of “Stompede Pioneers” who had the courage to jump into a brand new way of staging entertainment: Brent Kawchuk & Carolynn Tooth’s crews of Led … Continued

“Community Stompede”

I am having fun planning a “Community Stompede” walking tour in my home community of Lake Bonavista. Neighbours are putting up zany, home-grown entertainment all over the neighbourhood right from their own front lawns, so other people can walk around and get a happy-boost by seeing all the fun.  The first one will be this … Continued

#SaveOurStampede, musicians of Calgary!

I’ve been playing music semi-professionally in this city for a lonnng time….in bars, clubs and venues everywhere.  Stampede was always the highlight of my year, and I know for a fact that thousands of musicians depend on Stampede for the bulk of their annual earnings.  It was the one time of year when we could … Continued

Pandemic PopUps

Hello friends and neighbours!     After doing my first few porch pop-up shows from my home and LOVING the reaction of the neighbours, I would like to offer you the same, since every community deserves a chance to have some live-music to lift the spirits.  All of the following will respect social distancing and … Continued

Musicians’ role in the time of COVID-19

There has been a lot of talk and gratitude lately about the importance of roles in society such as nurses, caregivers, emergency services, refuse workers, factory worker, farmers, and grocers. And I agree!  But what is missing here is musicians.    And there’s a reason.    Too many musicians miss their opportunity to spread the … Continued

Second Single March 27

Releasing March 27, 2020, Futility is the second single from Jacquie Drew’s upcoming 2020 album, Lifelong Truth and is an acoustic, fast-grooving, wry commentary on the hopelessness of attempting to change someone you’re (ahem) trying to love. Using comically audacious metaphors such as “crossing the ocean in water wings” and “cramming fat fingers into tiny … Continued
