Hello Ladies and Gentlemen!

It is officially flip flop weather here in Utah and I am just about to string up the patio lanterns! We have had some great times with the BBQ and I am feeling a little sad to say goodbye to this dry hot desert home for a month! But the road calls and I must make my way across the country to meet up with the Canadian Via rail train and play my way to Halifax! I will be travelling solo across some of the most remote areas of the country, starting Utah and heading through Wyoming, Colorado, Kansas, Oklahoma, Missouri, Indiana, Ohio, Michigan, Ontario, Quebec, New Brunswick and Nova Scotia in 9 days! Wow, it sounds completely insane now that I have written it out like that. I will be playing some shows, dancing to Portuguese folk music and seeing some people whom I adore and miss greatly. It will be the longest solo journey ever, stopping where I can to take in the world and think some big thoughts....I will be posting regularly to the blog that Miss Julia CHandler started for me on Tumblr! is the video I made of previous travels to the title track of my album "WHere The Darkness Goes". Peace and love, Awna
