24th, 2003) I'm back to prove that I'm not dead! The last couple of
years have been full of soul searching and redefining my relationship with
music, among other things. I've cleaned up the site and added a couple of
new songs and several older ones. I've got a lot of songs on the go, and
rather than wait until they're perfect (they're never going to be), I'll be
posting them as works in progress, subject to review and reworking when I get
the inspiration. I hope you enjoy them - because that's really the whole
I've also got a live, acoustic version of "Take Me" coming out
on a compilation CD of Toronto artists as a benefit for
Arts Can Circle. The compilation is being
produced by Jennifer Claveau of
Likewater and consists of artists that were
featured at the
Groovy Mondays open stage. It is a
fantastic CD - I am blessed to be a part of it - with some of Toronto's best
songwriters and performers lending their talents to a greater cause.
The CD release is June 2nd at Holy Joes (Queen and Bathurst). The
disc is only $10, features 19 tracks, and won't leave the CD player in my car
for months when I finally get a copy of it. Many of the acts on the CD
will be playing a couple of songs live, myself included. I hope to see you

very much looking forward to it! It will also likely be our first Show with our

January 16th, 2001 - I made it back from Central America tanned for
me (still pretty pale!) and ready to get down to work. Today was a full
day of recording for the new CD, and it's sounding really good. The Blue
Rodeo Competition continues. Thanks for all your votes! There
appears to be separate rounds, so if you voted a week or two ago, you can
probably vote again by now. The band is playing at U of T on the 26th
of January at The Hanger (not the Air Canada Centre - I wish!). The
cover will be $3 and you'll get a Naked Walls CD with entry. (Naked walls
is a U of T compilation CD that includes Wedding Ring and In Body Only). "Take
Me" is now available for listening at www.mp3.com/mikeaudet.
That song always gets a great reaction - I hope you enjoy it! I
guess that's it for now. Thanks for visiting! (Posted January 16th)
