Hunters & Healers!

A little spring update – the OOOM chapter is over and tiny glimmers of new sounds and projects begin. This new chapter marks a new direction for my live performance. We have created a more intimate show for this upcoming May tour of select cities in of Italy, Switzerland, Germany, Austria and England. Replacing drums with synths and programmed rhythms I will explore new themes and sonic textures, creating a more ambient atmosphere. I will experiment with my own repertoire and pay tribute to influential works of others. Visual projections will also be incorporated into this unique show – created in collaboration between OOOM film director Tony Stone and Montreal super team FOUMALADE.

There will not be many shows this year, as I dig into new sounds and projects but for those of you in Europe and London I hope to see you this May – otherwise for the Canadians there is always HEAVY T.O. in July!

Mojo Hello Goodbye feature 1.10.10


finally, after years of not even knowing this should exist… MAdM TV is born.
born out of love of music, weird people and wanting to share it with YOU.
when a woman is invited to be the sole female front woman on a weekend of 34 HEAVY bands, in the sexiest city in the north east of the americas, she better equip herself with a modest camera crew and entourage, to feast on the moment… and so we did! Slayer, Mastodon, Molson Beer, need i say more………

dear land of heavy music lovers,
this is an ode to you, in a snapshot of what i think is the best HEAVY MUSIC festival in the world. you can not ask for a better city to host it, and a more passionate (French Canadian!) audience. proud that my home town can bring this life, and obligated to share it. MAdMTV meets HEAVY MTL, Pour Vous, in 4 parts x hope you enjoy as much as we did being there x

PART 1 – Featuring the Lay of the Festival Land, Skeletonwitch and more

PART 2 – Featuring the “Ladies” loving Lamb of God, Rob Zombie and more!

PART 3 – Featuring my love of all things M and Mastodon and Much Much More!

PART 4 – Featuring Dave, magic drummer of Slayer and the HEAVY MTL CROWD!

i was not prepared for making my first televised report. in an attempt to be prepared, i #ASKED the tweeters and facers to help me come up with questions last minute. there was a slew of great questions that came in from mariano, amal, adam, ricky, matt, james, katalyze, en apariencia, jj87, the real osmium, antonio, sarah, sweetice, mayvelin, hate the hate AND MORE> THANK YOU for all your collaboration, but i was scrambling and lost the paper. ended up winging it off the cuff.

Going Live, From Austria!



Back in the outdoor world, the crisp North Eastern air has tempted the leaves to turn and there are so many MAdM OOOM activities this Pagan month, I dare to say it’s Hunt for the Heart season… Let’s start our communal Fire here:


October 17th 2009, first show in NYC in 1007 years, and the first official USA Sneak Peek to the new Live MAdM (wait ’til my new live band kicks you in the virtual gut!). We were invited by the Royal Flush Festival to participate in both the Film and Live show sides of things.

Saturday October 17th MAdM LIVE at the new Knitting Factory in Brooklyn. You can buy tickets here.
Sunday October 18th OOOM SCREENING at the Anthology Film Archives. You can buy tickets here.

More show info HERE. Please pass it on to all Witches and Vikings you know on Metropolitan Blvd! (anyone in a Witch’s cloak gets to telepathically heal with me)

Our European debut of OOOM the film, happened this week at the fantastical Sitges festival in Spain and we’ve got a screening in the goddess city of New Orleans this week, and more to come. Keep hunting HERE for a screening near you!

OOOM is screening for five months within an honorable Pre-Raphaelite Fine Art Museum exhibit. The opening went on without a hitch but with plenty of witch. “The Lady of Shallot” has a siren song for you and we encourage anyone who plans to indulge in Montreal between now and February to see HER! Hunt for more info HERE.

The season has finally come, pushed by the fire of desire and nurtured by the patience to fight for independence. In the months ahead, the evergrowing world of OOOM will open to you. Thank you for your receiving heart, open ears and hungry eyes!


OUT OF OUR MINDS, the film,
is taking it’s first steps in her desire to go around the globe.
last week she visited Toronto at NXNE,
and tomorrow will be screened on a big BIG screen at BAM in brooklyn.
june 28th- 9pm, as part of the BAMCinemaFest.
i, the conceiver and my collaborator, director tony stone,
