“Love Notwithstanding” Opens!

May 9th, 2012|

And away we go!  The play I’ve written (which I also happen to be in) has it’s first preview May 9th, with our official opening May 20th at the Red Sandcastle theatre on Queen East. We’ve worked hard on this new play, and it’s been so incredibly interesting playing a role that you’ve written (and sometimes, sort of forgetting that you’ve written it when you’re concentrating on being an actor). I am incredibly proud of what this show has become.  You can RSVP your tickets at 416 845-9411.  See you there!

Love Notwithstanding- Rehearsals start!

April 21st, 2012|

Our pre-production work is almost done, I just finished a re-write, and in just a few days we’ll be going into rehearsals for my new play, “Love Notwithstanding”, which will open May 9th at the Red Sandcastle Theatre.  To say I’m looking forward to this play hitting the boards would be a bit of an understatment; I’ve been working on it for a few years now, it had a workshop through Talk is Free Theatre, and and now it feels ready.  Go to our website www.lovenotwithstanding.com for more info on the show, cast, and tickets.

CD Release Monday

April 14th, 2012|

Just a few more days now until the CD release this monday at Revival. Had a rehearsal with the band and they’re sounding great, especially on a few of the new tunes we’re trying out. Ben Kunder will be opening and I’m also pleased to announce that Alison Jutzi will be joining us as well.  Both are talented musician/writers who also spend some of their time performing in theatre (where I met them both) so I’m looking forward to having these wonderful people on the stage.  I’ll also be playing this song, the first from the new album, “With Open Arms”.  Show starts at 8pm!

Toronto CD release coming up!

April 3rd, 2012|

Back in Toronto from a great trip to my hometown of Calgary for a CD release now.  Thanks to everyone who came out and for being such an incredible audience.  Now, we’re less than two weeks away from the Toronto CD release at Revival on April 16th, with band rehearsals underway.  Also, looking forward to trying a few new songs out that night, like this song, “I like you because you’re a geek (even though you’re hot”.  See you at Revival!

 

Calgary CD Release

March 24th, 2012|

Just arrived in Calgary and getting ready for the CD release of the new album “The World Keeps Passing By” at the Auburn Saloon @ 8:00PM. We’ve had one review of the album so far, “It’s the songwriting that stands out with Tilly.  His lyrics are thoughtful and unpretentious.  He’s honest without being sappy or laden down with self-pity.  This alone sets him apart in the all-too earnest world of folk music.” (Peter Kearns, TO Snobs music).  Toronto release coming up on April 16th at Revival!
