September 30, 2015: Hey friends,

It sure has been awhile, hasn't it? Summer's just been way too full of fun to leave time for writing about it. I've finally got a couple days off on my own, holed up in a hotel in Buffalo, New York, and it feels great. Who knew admin could be so much fun? Tomorrow I'll be crossing the border back into Canada and meeting up with three of my favourite songwriters: Corin Raymond, David Newberry and David Ross MacDonald...
