Hope everyone you love is staying healthy and sane as this never ending pandemic continues to dominate our lives. In Ontario cases are on the rise, the Omicron variant is taking over, and I’m back to doomscrolling on Twitter every morning. Fortunately, I got into the holiday spirit earlier this month and got my gift shopping done. It helped that I DJed not one but THREE holiday markets this year, where I got some excellent gifts from local artisans.
The rest of this month I’ll be booking recordings for the rest of Season 4 of the Hamilton Film podcast. I’ll also be preparing for the next series of Music in Film Talks I’m hosting at the Westdale… I’ll be announcing the next ones soon. More info on those projects below.
In the spirit of giving, and loving music, I wanted to share with you my holiday playlist on Spotify that is the perfect soundtrack for your holiday gatherings.
Cheers to 2022!
