Where’s your favourite place in Newfoundland & Labrador to grab a coffee?

It was always Hava Java on Water St., but since they moved I’ve been hitting Post Espresso Bar or Coffee and Co.

Where’s your favourite place in Newfoundland & Labrador to grab a pint?

The Ship Inn feels like home. Always a good place for a killer show and a pint of Guinness.

Where’s your favourite place to shop in Newfoundland & Labrador?

Definitely O’Brien’s Music Store. My grandfather, Roy J. O’Brien, started the business way back in 1939. I spent a lot of time there when I was growing up. Music is in my blood. Uncle Gord and Cousin Mikey always take great care of me.

What's the one meal you miss the most when you're away?

I’m convinced that my Mom, Maureen Rowe, makes the world’s best fried cod tongues. It’s definitely one of my favourite meals and I have to fly across the country to eat it. That makes it taste even better.

Where in Newfoundland & Labrador would we stand to see your favourite view?

My favourite view is looking out over the pond on a calm summer evening from the front deck of my family cabin on Topsail Pond in Paradise, NL. My older brother, John, lives there these days. So many great memories that I wouldn’t even know where to begin.

Name 3 things we’ve gotta do when we visit Newfoundland & Labrador:

1. Snorkel with Humpback whales.

2. Hike the “Dead Man’s Trail” from Blackhead to Fort Amherst.

3. Drive or bike through Grosse Morne Park (summer), or hit Marble Mountain Ski Resort (winter).

What makes Newfoundland & Labrador such a special place on earth for you?

I’ve been fortunate enough to do quite a bit of traveling in my lifetime. Newfoundland is so unique. It’s like nowhere else I’ve ever been. An island that fits somewhere in between new world and old world with very genuine, intelligent and creative people. These people have character and their art has honesty and originality. The musical talent there is exceptional and I’m convinced that the St. John’s music scene can hold it’s own with any other in the world. I am proud to say that I’m a Newfoundlander and I will always call it home.
