THE WORST KIND OF AMBITION - 10 Year Anniversary


This week marks the 10th anniversary of my very first solo record "The Worst Kind of Ambition." A very special record for me. It helped me figure out who I am as a musician and a human being and set me off on a path of songwriting and travel that I still follow. I'm going to be celebrating this momentous occasion by playing a bunch of solo shows all over the country all year playing all my fave spots that I have found over the years, starting off with a few shows in #Alberta July 10-15! If you have been with me since this album came out, I am eternally grateful and can’t wait to see you!





Today we released a 3 song EP called “See You In The Storm”. It is available to stream or buy at all digital platform including but not limited to:





Thanks for checking it out!

See You In the Storm PRE-ORDER

Hey folks, been a while! Lots of things going on this year with me/us, most notably we are happy to announce the release of a 3 song EP called “See You In The Storm” on May 7, 2019! These 3 songs about hope, sadness, and revival were recorded during the Grief Intensity Friendship recording sessions, by the immensely talented and kind Jesse Gander.

The EP will be available digitally on all major streaming platforms on May 7th, but you can pre-order it here: and get an immediate copy of the title track.

*Note! - If you bought Grief Intensity Friendship off of Bandcamp in the first few weeks of it’s release, you already got these songs as a bonus in that download. Just a heads up.

Introducing The Long Winter!

People always ask when I'm gonna get a band name for all the full band shows we play, and it was never an easy thing for me to come up with. Every good idea I ever had always came really easy and for this, nothing was ever sparking. But in the back of my mind I always knew what it was. Not only is it a throwback to old lyrics and an old album, it's also a thing that has shaped my emotional well being and seasonally affected well-being that has shaped the course of my music over the years. So tonight at Lanalou's will be the first official show of Jesse LeBourdais and the Long Winter! Just in time for Stephanie to leave for 3 months! LOL! No, but seriously, I am forever indebted to her and Dave for all the work they did on the new record. Lots of new stuff coming on that front soon, but for tonight, come on down and buy them a drink and watch the River Jacks and Josh Wood and help us celebrate being alive and being able to enjoy it!


Free Music until New Year's!

Hey y'all! 2016 is almost over, and seeing how we finished recording a new record this year and will be releasing sometime in 2017, I thought I would make all my music on Bandcamp free! This will only last until New Year's Day though, so get em' while they are hot. Thanks for all the support this year, looking forward to getting out on the road again when the snow melts.

Go to: to get started! Share if you feel like it!



Oct 16th 300th Show/New Album Fundraiser!

About 6 years ago, I turned off my amp and picked up an acoustic guitar and started off down a solo path that has taken me many places across the continent, to venues and living rooms and basements, and through the lives of many wonderful people. It's been a long, incredible fun journey, and I am very pleased to announce that on Oct 16th, I/we will be playing my 300th show at Lanalou's in Vancouver! We also start recording our 4th full length album on Oct 21, so this show will also be dress rehearsal to make sure we know how to play all the new songs. We have asked the lovely Mobina Galore from Winnipeg to join us, as well as Miesha and the Spanks from Calgary. Local radio celebrity Rocket From Russia will also be doing DJ sets between bands. I hope you can join us on this wonderful occasion, and here's to 300 more!
