What Is The Word – April 14, 2013 Edition

Well, looks like we’ve made some headway here at Heartbreak a Stranger HQ. Let’s get you up to date :


I’ve added some songs, photos and video to my CBC Music page. You can now listen to all of the Trenton EP as individual songs (Psst, I’ve included some extra tunes. You might want to check it out).



I have added some merchandise to the merch page. You can buy merchandise at live shows.

In honor of the Chirpify merchandise page, I’m having a contest !!! I’m gonna give away two postcards. Actually, I will mail the postcards to the winners. Pretty simple contest:

  • On my FB feed, there’s a post about the postcard. Share the post on your FB feed and/or put your name in the comment section of the post.
  • If you are using twitter, send me a tweet and use #heartbreakapostcard

That’s it. I’ll make a draw Friday, April 19.


In May, I also have a house concert on the Victoria Day long weekend (if you live between Halifax and Truro and want to attend, send me an email and I’ll give you directions) and a Saturday matinee show in Halifax. I’ll post more details as we get closer to the date of the shows.
