Today I released my latest Drawin Wolf album, I Hear Footsteps!
In the houses you grew up in, hums the echo of footsteps you once knew quite well.
I Hear Footsteps is an audible book of words: a mindmap thats ties my thoughts of these past few months together. Thoughts of the growth and loss of friendships, relationships, the roots that remain; thoughts of dysphoria, transformed spaces from my childhood: the valleys, the campgrounds, the bedrooms; Bridges, maps, tools for safe passage through this lifetime this lifetime. This album is me reaching for a sense of immersion I believe existed in me when I was younger, and that I must now actively seek out.
These songs have all been written by me within the past few months. I began recording in Devon’s trailer (thanks devon!) at Ally’s cabin (thanks ally!) 2 weeks after my arrival in Dawson City, YT. The rest, I recorded in my room once we found a home for the winter.
I send my love and well-wishing to those who encouraged have been encouraging me to write my writing as a child, thank you for telling me my stories were worth anything.
After a couple months of touring with friends, I have managed to settle down for the season in the lovely Dawson City! After a long, adventurous summer, I await the grip of winter, ready to learn at SOVA, and ready to hunker down and focus on creating and becoming a part of the Dawson community.
Hello, friends! Today we finished up the recordings for Drawin Wolf’s first album, Write About the Childhood Coat, to be released within the next couple weeks! I will be releasing a zine of lyrics and drawings when I make the album available for download on my bandcamp! You will be able to purchase it online for $10, and for $7 in person! I am very excited deeply appreciative of everyone who’s helped make this project possible, and enjoyable!
Monica and I got together with Preston this weekend and recorded a demo on a cassette recorder to tide things over until we finally get around to “properly” recording a full-length! So here y’are! Some low-fi silly goodness!
Ps. I’ll be recording Drawin Wolf stuff next weekend in London, so stay tuned!
We’ve been busy in the Dreampipe so far this season, and we’re really excited about where we’ve gone and where we’re going with our work. On October 20th, we had an art show and open mic at the Herbal Clinic & Dispensary. It was cozy and intimate and all other kinds of wonderful. Days later, on the 25th, we brought our suitcase and instruments to a bridge in the east end and we played and enjoyed a chilly evening (with occasional warmth provided by Caela’s homemade veggie stew, a bonfire and multiple layers) under the bridge with friends.

Dreampipe Collective will be tabling and playing a set at LoveHoldLetGo’s Toronto Show on Nov 6th
I will be presenting my art at Etobicoke School of the Art’s Portfolio Day and Portfolio Day After-Party/Art Sale.
