Hey All, I’m stepping away from using social media in a personal capacity to free up some needed space in my mind and my day. All is well, I’m just knee deep in working towards a new record for release next spring and the world is spinning fast. We will still be actively using this account to post information about upcoming shows, music, other projects, and to occasionally link to my website where I may post now and then. I suspect I will return here occasionally to personally post something, and when that’s the case, I’ll sign off using my initials JP. If you have inquiries feel free to contact my manager, Sheri, via my website contact page. I look forward to seeing you at the shows and in the neighbourhood! - JP

Honoured to be included in Erin Costelo's playlist for CBC. Also nice to hear our dearly missed friend, Matthew Grimson, sing his beautiful song, Closing Theme.

Links to tickets for fall Thrush Hermit reunion shows in NS, NB and ON are up on my site here. For those asking about western dates- unlikely at this point as finding two weeks that worked for us all was challenging enough but thanks for your enthusiasm!
