Recently we even had a feature in the New York Times. This whole Junkprints adventure has been quite whirlwind and I'm looking forward showing off the new junk and sharing this special evening with you 😉

I'm working with the fine folks of Tough Dumplin (aka my husband) to put on the first in a series of Music showcases. It's called 'Where I'm From Tour.' This tour will feature one local musician/MC/band and one out of town musician/MC/band performing on the same stage surrounded by fun folk and talented visual artist that work in various mediums from fashion to sculpture. The locations of the shows will vary from city to city. The purpose of this tours is to expose musicians to various audiences. The breakdown of the traditional 'music industry' has given way to many amazing musicians that are able to build a local audience but are having a hard time touring and connecting with the rest of the world and like minded folk. These tour serve as a solution for this dilemma and will help to foster good music, make the world a bit smaller and bring back the live performance. The first Where I'm from show will take place on November 8th at Supreme Trading in Williamsburg. It's called Toronto Meets New York'. More deets soon to come! Pls mark your calender and sign up to the mailing list for more info.
If you missed it hopefully you kicked yerself in the butt real hard. check out some party pics. My peeps and I are having another jam on Nov 8th at supreme trading in Williamsburg. I'll keep ya posted on the future festivities.
after all... a party is not a party w/out a doo doo shot!
This had to be the best party that I've been to in a real long time...99% of the people were dancing 99% of the time and the party ended when the sun came up. Toronto was def in the house, So I know ya wanna see pics right? Well with all the whoo ha, I left my camera at the studio so the party will have to exist as a legendary experience complete with baby elephants and unicorns. Big ups to Max and Sarah of Ruffeo Hearts Lil Snotty, Mike, James and Tris of Tough Dumplin on the wheels all night and all the folks that came out and danced til the sun came up. Cheers to a fantastic year.
