Where’s your favourite place in PEI to grab a coffee?
So many great spots! One of my favourites is definitely Leonhard’s Cafe and Restaurant on University Avenue. Fantastic European style coffee and great gluten free soups! I wrote a song about a pie from that lovely German spot. 7 Nut Pie! You gotta grab a slice of that.

Where’s your favourite place in PEI to grab a pint?
I love Sportman’s Club on University Avenue. Cheap drinks and free pool! Always full of great characters too. I played my first slot machine there and won a few bucks!

Where’s your favourite place to shop in PEI?
I love to head out to Victoria by the Sea in the summertime and check out the art and pottery shops. I buy most, if not all of my clothes second hand, so I just like to go shopping for little things. I love to buy coffee mugs. All of the houses in Victoria by the Sea are brightly colored mini homes. Very cute and quaint and I feel like I'm in the "Alice in Wonderland" novel. I went for a walk there this summer before a gig and found myself amongst the company of chickens who'd gotten out of their coop. They let me pet them too. It's a wonderful spot!

Where in PEI would we stand to see your favourite view?
I love Tea Hill, in the Stratford area of PEI. It’s a beautiful public park with a small beach that has a far off view of the Charlottetown harbour.  It’s very quiet and in the summer, the clay beneath your feet is so red, it’ll dye your bathing suits. You need to be careful!

Name 3 things we’ve gotta do when we visit PEI:

1.     Confederation Center Art Gallery

2.     Harmony House Theatre in Hunter River (my home town!)

3.     Victoria by the Sea

What makes PEI such a special place on earth for you?
I find PEI so beautifully calming, and after being out on a tour it really is the perfect place to come home to. I can't wait for all of the adventures in my life that are to come, but it is nice to know that I’ll always have PEI in the back of my mind as a place to come home to.  The people are friendly, the food is fantastic and I always find myself in awe of our old country roads. It’s home.
