It’s been months in the making, and we are over-the-moon excited to finally share this tour documentary with you.
“North to Alaska” is a behind-the-scenes glimpse of life on the road with Sheila and Amanda. This 30 minute video follows Dala as they make their way to Alaska for the first time.
We hope you enjoy!
WW Club album to be released April 13
Amanda’s “WW Club” Children’s Album will be released April 13!
What a weekend! Only five weeks after being devastated by unprecedented flooding, the city of Calgary came out in full force to celebrate music from around the globe. Amanda and I played in workshops with artists hailing everywhere from Australia to Hamilton. We danced to the insanely joyful sounds of The Cat Empire, joked with Royal Canoe, and caught up with friends like Danny Michel, Treasa Levasseur and Corin Raymond. But I have to say that the biggest rock star we met all weekend was none other than the Mayor of Calgary himself, Naheed Nenshi, who came to our concert on Sunday afternoon. Can you tell I’m starstruck in the photo?
You can’t keep a great city down. We love you Calgary!
Amanda and I made it safely to Maui after about ten and half hours in total in the air. I don’t mind the time difference here, as it means I get to watch the sunrise during my early morning run. I could have sworn that Lance Armstrong rode by me this morning. We did the respectful nod in passing, and then I did a triple take. However, the next cyclist who passed me also looked a lot like Lance Armstrong…I was really dehydrated.
We’ve only been on the island a few days, but I think my breathing has already slowed down to match the sound of the waves. Amanda is currenly doing yoga by the beach, and we’re planning on meeting up for morning Mai Tais. I think it’s 3 o’clock in Toronto.
Amanda’s Winter Firsts
Snowshoeing in Prince George, BC
1. First time snowshoeing through the forest in Prince George.
Highlight: the mid-trek break overlooking a frozen lake while enjoying a mocha-coffee with Baileys!
-45°C in Regina SK
2. First time on Salt Spring Island.
Highlight: watching the sun rise over the misty trees on our early morning ferry ride.
3. First headlining show in Regina!
Highlight: walking in -30 weather (-45 with the wind chill) to O’Hanlon’s Pub which, sadly, has had their 5ft 10 statue “Zolt Tranlon” stolen for the second time. He is described as “a statue”, “quite the ladies’ man” and an “excellent dancer”.
Have you seen Zolt Tranlon?
