LOST CELL PHONE BLUES
Several years ago I won a 3-Hour Sail aboard Thane with the band The Sweet Lowdown. In a tragic turn of events, my cell phone slipped out of my pocket and into the depths of the Salish Sea. I mourned heavily for a few hours, then wrote this cathartic song, feeling much better after I did. One year later I got to sing it aboard the same ship with my band, the Wild Sundays!

Check out my entertaining video about food and farming politics! We had a gas filming this around Cowichan Valley, playing with the cows and chickens with our gumboots on. Thanks to local celeb and Duncan mayor Michelle Staples for making the video!

In 2015 I was contacted by Shawnigan Area Director to write a song in support of the Shawnigan Residents fight for clean water. A toxic dump site has brought hundreds of truck loads of contaminated soil to the head of the Shawnigan watershed. Here is the video made with the song I wrote, and a link to Sonia Furstenau’s website:
