We are Super Excited to announce that a brand new single is about to drop to Canadian Country Music Radio, right across the country, January 28th, 2019!
"Say You Are" is the title of the new single release for Tommy John Ehman and new duet partner, Saskatchewan recording artist and very talented Amanda Hagel. The song, written by TJE and recorded and produced by Jesse Weiman of Nolita Studios of Saskatoon, SK, is a classic mid-tempo "old-fashioned love song" but polished and shined to fit into the 21st Century of country music.
"This song was written for my previous Acoustic album 'Day Night' but I just thought it deserved a full band production to really do it justice. And having Amanda sing on it was just the icing on the cake. She's absolutely terrific!"
We are proud to have Andrea Morris and AM to FM Promotions of Toronto, ON on our team to help promote the song to radio stations coast to coast and beyond. You will also be able to find the new song on Spotify, Itunes, Apple Music, Goo...
Well what do you know...it's December! My how the year has flown by. We've had so many great achievements and events in 2018 and we have one more to share with you.
I was VERY fortunate to be a part of a brand new Christmas album released by talented Sask songwriter Doug Sylvester, just in time for Christmas! The album is called "Sending Heart Shaped Snowflakes" and I sang a song called "Toy Drive." What's really cool about this album is that all songwriting royalties are going to a charity of each artist's choice. I chose the CNIB which is obviously very close to my heart. So when you listen or purchase the album you're helping out some great organizations.
The album is available on Spotify, itunes, Apple Music and other online music platforms. You can also purchase a physical copy by getting in touch with Doug Sylvester at email@example.com.
You can listen to "Toy Drive" and the rest of the album on spotify here:
You know, when you hear people say that "It's just nice to be nominated," it really is true.
I found out this week that I have been nominated in 2 catagories for the 2018 Saskatchewan Country Music Association Awards, and YES it is VERY Nice!
My new album "Day Night" has been nominated for "Album of the Year" and I also have a nod in the "Roots Artist of the Year" catagory. I've been playing and recording my music for a long time, as most of you know, so being recognized in this way by your industry peers validates my work and just says that, hey maybe you're doing OK after all! lol But seriously, it really is pretty darn cool.
The Awards take place in Prince Albert, SK on April 27-29, 2018. Tickets are available now so if you want to go there are lots of events and fun to be had. I'm also going to be a part of the "Songwriters circle" on the Saturday so you might want to come and listen to some great Sask talent sing their songs. It's going to be a great weekend and I'll keep you posted...
I know in this day and age in the music business it's all about digital music with mp3s, streaming, downloads and subscriptions and that's all new, works great and much of my music is available on those platforms.
But there are many of us who still appreciate a Brand New "Physical" CD in our hands. It's the smell, the feel, the artwork, the liner notes and photos that we still want to experience as we play the new music we just bought. I'm in that category and proud of it too! I have a nice collection of CDs that I play regularly in my computer and CD player. Let's say it's "Old School"!
Now my new CD, and my older ones too, are not for sale in any stores but I DO HAVE some brand new "Day Night" CDs that we have available if you want one. Besides coming to one of our live shows, the best way to get one is by sending an "Email Money Transfer" for $15.00 to "firstname.lastname@example.org" (including your mailing address) and we'll ship you one out. And you can add it to your music collect...
Well, I'm pretty excited to announce that the new CD "Day Night" is officially released!
It's taken a lot of work, time and effort to write, record and release a new album but when it is finally done, you really feel a sense of pride and accomplishment. And you can't wait to share it with the world.
So here it is and available now on the website as well as Spotify, itunes, Google Music, Apple Music and many other online platforms, whichever one you like the best.
And here is a link to a
brand new video that we're releasing of the song "Love in the Summertime" off the album. Check it out and see what you think. We love this new song and hope you will too.
