    One of my proudest moments was when I decided to work in youth outreach. Using music as the voice for my growing pains has been the vehicle to my inspiration and it still is. I'd like to share with our participants, that there are so many theraputic and useful ways to express yourself through your hardships. The workshops I am presenting this week, do just that. Through the non-profit, Overture with the Arts, we present SPEAK:

    S-Self Esteem
    P-Pressure
    E-Empathy
    A-Attitude
    K-Knowledge

    Here, we learn how to use art forms as expression tools. I will be performing many songs off of 'Wonderkind' and rapping a verse, for a collaborative piece I wrote with Jonathan Emile (my co-presenter) that we produced together. Here are the lyrics for my verse!

    Wonderkind is out in LP/CD and digital format. BUT because of back-up in manufacturing, our LP's won't be ready in time for the release show, at the Horseshoe on Thursday April 10th. We will have pre-order forms so that MapleMusicRecordings can ship you your copy, once they come in. On Thursday, we perform at 10:30pm sharp amongst our friends -not to miss- Triple Gangers (9:50), Fevers (11:45) and Coronado (9:00)!

    We will be playing featured tracks from our new album 'Wonderkind', with guests, Nick Buligan on horns and Laura Anderson singing harmonies.

    We are also excited to share with you our new T-Shirts, printed by Happy Screen Printers! on our merchandise page. They will be up for sale shortly!

    Even though we have the full band playing on Thursday, here's a little taste of some of the new music ...a solo performance of, 'Illusion' via Southern Souls, shot by Mitch Fillion

    Language Arts are hibernating on the seaside of Nova Scotia, working on some new songs, and I am so excited about them!

    Aside from turning a cottage on the Northumberland Strait into a recording studio, and being on deer and storm watch, we are putting together our performance for Toronto on Friday January 24th, and planning for the April 1st release of Wonderkind.

    So please stay tuned to our many networks -- Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, YouTube, Vimeo -- for upcoming content and announcements!

    I wish you the warmest and happiest of holidays, and sincerely thank you all for the love and support you have shown Language Arts! We are so grateful to be making music and having your ears to share it with!

    All my best,

    Kristen, Sprout, and Language Arts

    Before we drop 'Wonderkind' we will be playing a fun showcase set in Toronto, at the Horseshoe on Tuesday December 3rd. We perform at 11:30pm sharp. It's our last show of 2013, and admission is free!

    This show is just to give you a little taste of what is to come, then soon we will be releasing a funny video and our album release details!

    ...but in the meantime, we will see you at the Horseshoe... that is, after you check out my WonderDog, Sprout, jamming to J Dilla!

    This is our first year performing at Pop Montréal, and we are thrilled to be playing Peter Rowan's showcase at O Patro Výš on Friday September 27th. There's more info on the Performances page. This will be a full-band show... buckle up!

    Here is a video of an acoustic performance from June of 2012 where we had the joy of playing in a rug shop on Bayview. We originally went to Sunnybrook Stables but we got turned away, so with fifteen minutes remaining in our available time to shoot, the seven of us screeched the tires as we drove past the rug shop, loaded in as fast as we could, and performed this, "More Than Amazing" as well as one other tune. Now that more than a year has passed, we should post it before it becomes older news. We'd like to thank Mitch Fillion for his talents, and I'd like to thank the seven musicians who performed on the upcoming Language Arts album, who are also seen in this video. It was a very special day for me, even though it was really rushed. I can't say enough about how great these musicians are: Neil MacIntosh (drums), Joel Visentin (keys), Joe Ernewein (bass), Alex McMaster (cello), Randy Lee (violin), and Nick Bulligan, who learned the trumpet parts the night before like a champ, since JP Carter lives in Vancouver.
