I am very excited to finally be having my official CD release at home here on P.E.I. at Trailside Cafe on July 4th. I was waiting until my producer Jaron Freeman-Fox made his way to the Maritimes with his amazing band, The Opposite of Everything. Don't miss these guys!! They are some of the finest young players in the country right now. I was so lucky to have them on my record and can't wait to share the stage with them.
Song Road is available at teresadoyle.bandcamp.com.

Rock Barra Artist Retreat
Rock Barra Retreat is a twenty acre paradise on a pristine beach on P.E.I.'s north shore. My buddy the late Sam Sniderman granted me a fifty year lease on the property to create an oasis for artists.I am the artistic director at the retreat and spend as much time as I can there in the summer. A few years back Daniel Day-Lewis and his wife Rebecca Miller used the land for a feature film and left behind a structure where we host summer programming.
This summer I will be hosting a concert series every Sunday night featuring some of the Island's finest songwriters.We also will present a series of art workshops. For a full program list go to www.rockbarraretreat.com.
My singing camp this year runs from Friday August 2nd at 7:00 until noon on Sunday August 4th. We always have a great time and many people come back every year. The camp is open to all comers, experienced singers and shy beginners. This year I'll be combining basic vocal technique with The Yoga of Sound. The Yoga of Sound introduces the voice as a healing modality, using chants, light exercises, labyrinth walks and improvisation to bring peace and calm to the mind and body. Expect to leave the workshop having a better understanding of the power of the voice and feeling relaxed and inspired after a weekend of singing, laughing, campfires and swimming. The cost for the entire weekend is $165.
