Poor Nameless Boy signs publishing deal with CCS Rights Manangement

February 14, 2017
TORONTO, ON - CCS Rights Management is pleased to announce it has entered into a worldwide publishing deal with Saskatchewan native Poor Nameless Boy (Joel Henderson). The boutique publishing house led by industry veteran Jodie Ferneyhough is growing its roster to include rising stars in the folk scene. 

"I've heard his music over the past couple years and when we finally saw him live at Reeperbahn, there was instant chemistry with and connection to the music. We've been looking for an artist like him, and we are really pleased to begin this strategic partnership," explains Ferneyhough. 

Laading into his showcases at North America's biggest team grow, "My heart is happy and full, and I'm excited to be able to focus on what I love - writing and performing."

The remainder of the year will see Poor Nameless Boy embark on three European tours, and preparing for his follow up album to 2016's critically acclaimed "Bravery".

Disks not working. -----


Recently, after a show I had someone message me about purchasing "The Activity Book" in hard copy CD from me. They wrote informing me that it did not work in their computer or elsewhere. I've now checked 5 other copies at home here and I find the same result.

While I work on understanding why this is the case, and how many disks are affected. PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE, if you purchased a copy of the album and it does not work, message me. I'm more than happy to send yo...

"Dream Boat" - Live from Pender Island, BC - Wildwood Artist Retreat.

March 15, 2016

Had the pleasure of spending a few days at Wildwood Artist Retreat on Pender Island, BC. They've set up a wonderful venue and retreat for artists who are on the road. They offer songwriting workshops, videos, a place to record demos, and a wonderful cat who loves attention but it's all in your face about it. 

Carmelle and I got to relax for two days and talk with Zoltan and Lauren about life. We ended up shooting a live video to Dream Boat. Hope it finds you well.

Top 100 Canadian Singles. - Album Review.

January 26, 2016


Beats me how a Saskatchewan boy knows how to write about the Atlantic Ocean, but Joel Henderson (aka Poor Nameless Boy) nails it on the song of that title, plus the cut Dream Boat, where he's sailing with a few too many dreams to take on another, perhaps a lover, we're not told. Anyway, sailing imagery is just one of his strengths, on his second, very strong collection.

Henderson's an acoustic storyteller, with that magic touch, the ability t...
