When I found out I had been invited to participate in The Banff Centre’s Indie Music Residency, I let out a very happy shriek. Get this straight: I am not a shrieky person, and no one would ever describe me as a “woo girl”. I was THAT excited. It is a program that I have wanted to partake in ever since the Centre introduced it in 2009. My peers who have participated in previous years always describe it as an unforgettable and tremendously supportive journey. I can’t wait for mine.
This opportunity to spend two weeks honing my craft – in a dedicated rehearsal space - in a supportive environment, smack in the middle of a small break before a new record release and subsequent tour. It couldn’t have happened at a better time.
