Stream my new record KODIAK on CBC.ca a week before it's release! http://music.cbc.ca/#/blogs/2013/5/Rykkas-Kodiak-full-album-stream
What a great day yesterday! I took the ferry over to Victoria, and my radio tracker, Oscar Furtado came to grab me. He's rad. Then we went to The Zone in Victoria and everyone was super nice and chill, we did a live tune and a little interview, then Oscar and I went to a secret building in Victoria to film a live performance video with Shaw. OH! Also, I had a great interview with Ana @ Beat Route in the early early morning :)
Here's a song from the new album called the Brink!
You can now stream it on my CBC profile!

Tour Blog 1: 16-24 Feb. 2013 Ryyka & Timothy Jaromir
Our Tour has been running for more then a week now.
Last Saturday I took the early morning train up to Leipzig to meet up with Rykka there. The same night we had a show at FraKu in Leipzig. It was nice to have a big stage for our first show together and we enjoyed it and got a cute apartment for the night in a trendy part of the town.
THUN, Mundwerk - Yayyyy! People in Thun are hilarious, they bought lots of vinyl and asked me if I had cassette tapes for sale. It was the first show with new gear, but it worked out ok, peeps were definitely on board! I love Reto, he owns the venue, Mundwerk.
NÜRNBERG, Artefakt Cafe-Great show! Full club, everyone was so enthusiastic. Yaaaaaa. The city is so small and everyone knew each other so well, it was really great to see. Can't wait to come back, I think on September 13!!!
