The alleged art project is in the works.
The insanely talented, Brendan George Ko, has been following us for the past few months and is making something that we will be sharing bits and pieces of as it comes together! The email I got with this photo read, verbatim, "...and so it begins!"

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:
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
