New video release

A few years ago I discovered looping and Ableton Live. For someone who enjoys dabbling with various instruments it was a total game changer...

I decided to make this little video sharing my approach to looping. It features the lovely Shyann. Enjoy!

Culture Labs youth program

I've been asked by the Mississauga Arts Council to be a mentor this year's Culture Labs program. The event is a day-long series of joint seminars and break out workshops geared towards young people considering artistic careers.

As tempting as it is to tell these kids to run the other way... I can't wait to hear what they have to say and hopefully help guide them in the right direction! Many thanks to the Art Council for the invite!


Metalworks Institute shoutout

The good folks at Metalworks Institute just published this alumni update featuring yours truly... Many thanks to Candice Briddles and Ron Rogers!

National Endorsement

I just signed an endorsement deal with Fido for the marketing for their new home-internet service. They decided to cross-promote with 3 Canadian artists and I'm honoured to be one of them. Plus I didn't have to sell my soul for this one, which was nice... they couldn't have been cooler.

 You can catch the posters and commercials at Fido stores as well as their website: 

Thanks Fido!

New live video

Me and Shyann just released a new live video for 'Green Mellotron'.

We had a lot of fun shooting this. Lots of looping, lots of live instruments, lots of beatiful singing...
