Its been a scramble this past week putting all of the details together as final mixes get approved, CD art starts rolling in and songs get registered. Anyone interested in helping support my music and in purchasing The Flood should check out http://igg.me/at/theflood . You can also give me a hand by sharing this with your community. Thanks - Ali
On the Road
The Fugitives are once again out on tour, after spending Valentines in Rossland we're headed north to Dunster, Smithers and Prince George (Feb 20-24). Then back to Vancouver for a quick studio day.
Tracking is Done,
In October I started tracking a full length solo album at Marc Atkinson's studio on Hornby Island BC. Stay tuned for more news and my pre-sale campaign that kicks off in March 2015. I'm looking forward to sharing these old and new tunes with all of you.
