Vogue Theatre with Ziggy Marley

IMG_9291.JPG

This past Monday was the second time I opened for Ziggy, but this time I overcame shyness and spoke to him after his soundcheck! We spoke about the venue and he was interested in the show I saw there with Prince a few years back joking that he wouldn't dare crowdsurf like he did.

My band consisted of Mary Ancheta (keys), Michael Rush (upright bass), and Jon Roper (lead guitar). This more stripped down 'acoustic' set up made the full-house of 1200+ people feel intimate. People being attracted to the universal themes of peace and love associated with Ziggy Marley, were appreciative of my music and talk about indigenous and environmental justice.

This was definitely one of the best performances and venues in my career to date. And I am grateful to the Vancouver International Jazz Festival for giving me the honour of opening up for the eldest son of the great Bob Marley.

Returning to Australia this Sunday!! I've loved being back home in Vancouver with friends and family for a few weeks, and it's a little hard to leave knowing I'll be gone for 2 months. But, I am so grateful to be travelling and playing music abroad again. Excited for some new adventures with some old friends and some new ones I have not yet met!

TREATY 8 JUSTICE FOR THE PEACE TOUR

The battle for the Peace River Valley is heating up. On September 5th, the Treaty 8 First Nations Caravan will be heading to Montreal for a court date on September 12th addressing the infringement of FN rights by the proposed Site-C Dam. Donate online at bit.ly/Treaty8Caravan to help them travel the 4,432km and make sure the voices of the Peace River Valley are heard.

"The cross-country caravan will stop in communities along the way, sharing stories, connecting struggles, and building support for the just resolution of the West Moberly and Prophet River First Nations’ case against the Site-C dam. These two communities have been fighting this project for nearly five decades."

I travelled to the Peace River for the Paddle for the Peace in early-July and saw the beauty of this place first-hand. As well as the destruction that would happen to this remarkable ecosysytem that is steeped in FN history and is also the home of incredibly fertile farmland. Behind me in this shot is the illegally created construction site for the dam. BC Hydro is using intimidation to stop people from blockading and bringing to light their activities by getting injunctions and using SLAPP lawsuits.

But the resistance is growing and that's why it is important to be a true ally to our FN brothers and sisters protecting this land and river. This $9bn project is not about efficient energy production, it will only lead to irreversible damage to this ecosystem as well as break promises that Justin Trudeau made to First Nation communities. Amnesty International has said so itself. This past Sunday, the Poets for the Peace event raised almost $2k, big ups to Valeen,Jb the FirstLadyYvonne, and all other organizers and performers.

Please contribute what you can to the LeadNow TREATY 8 JUSTICE FOR THE PEACE TOUR bit.ly/Treaty8Caravan
