It’s time to move on.
I’ll be playing a « farewell to Toronto » full-band show
on June 13th at Burdock Music Hall.
I’ll be accompanied by the coolster Ben Harney on bass, the feelster Jason Ball on keys and the groovster Charlotte Cornfield on drums.
We’ll be playing songs from the (eternally upcoming) 8th record of mine, « Now Is Not A Good Time », on which they all played.
Come say hi…and bye !
I’m soon heading to the good ol’ Europe to play a couple of shows with some good ol’ friends.

Friends & fans!
The new album, recorded in the UK, is now getting mixed in the USA by the mighty Bill Moriarty (Dr. Dog, Man Man, The Sheepdogs…).
« You Can’t Beat Me If I’m Not Playing » will be The Keys’ 8th Album. It was recorded with talented local musicians in Swansea, Wales during the Winter of 2013, often late at night.
This eerie scene was captured around midnight in the middle of the Gower Peninsula, on the way back from the studio.
Barely back from a fun European tour with Charlotte Cornfield, and already recording my brand new album in Swansea (South Wales) with fantastic local musicians! At last! I hadn’t been in a recording studio since August 2010 in Toronto… 12 new songs are in the works at the RookPie Studio in the scenic Gower Peninsula and this is sounding really good. Check out pictures here!
