Recording Finished

Finished my album with boss queen @i_am_hill and I couldn’t be more excited and honoured to have worked with her on this. Now we are friends forever. These last two weeks have been some of the best of my life. I am so grateful.

New Songs

December 2017
Over the next few months I’ll be recording new songs with the incredible @mr_bradsmith at @velveteenaudio and @edmontonestudio. All the unreleased songs I’ve been work shopping and playing live for the last year and a half will finally be coming to real life.

A Little Vulture Told Me

Recording a single this weekend at Velveteen Audio. I had a look through some older songs I had recorded on my four-track and remembered how much I loved this one. So off to Brad's studio in downtown Edmonton. Can't wait to see how this turns out.

It's Time for Toast & Tea


heavy head, fragile heart 

i met you half way, you did your part 
search for the floor with pine needle feet 
that nightmare you had was disguised as a dream

Look At Where We Are (Hot Chip Cover)

Recorded a cover of a Hot Chip song at 2AM the other night, inspired by watching The Blue Planet, having a cold that won't go away and the desire to float into space.
