Flute Love for “Fragments” on Exclaim and BBC Radio 6

It’s been an exciting time with the highly-anticipated album release of SIGHT by Toronto’s Pick A Piper. Caribou musician, Brad Weber invited me to record flute for his Pick a Piper track, “Fragments”. I sent him my flute takes with a twist. I recorded it for effected alto flute and focused on the percussive sounds I could create from the instrument. Looks like this great track is getting lots of love all over the world, including by the fine folks at Exclaim and BBC Radio 6 Music‘s 6 Music Recommends w/ Tom Ravenscroft. Right on Pick A Piper aka Brad Weber. Digging that the Ali Ryerson Gemeinhardt Musical Instruments alto flute is getting sexy spins around the world.

P4 Västmanland Sveriges Radio Performance / Interview

Playing on P4 Västmanland Sveriges Radio was a heartwarming experience I will always remember. Don’t think I’ve ever felt so nervous performing live on air before. The room was electric! It’s a rare treat when you get to perform the world premiere of a piece in the country where the piece was composed and with your collaborative partners in the room. Sweden’s Mary Read were fantastic! Check out the performances and interviews.. My segment starts around 2/3rds of the way in but I recommend you check out Mary Read too. They are doing something truly unique and special as they mix Swedish folk music with electronics. Tack to Per Erik Jonsson for the excellent engineering!

Newfoundland Herald Feature

A priceless moment as I picked up a copy of the The Newfoundland Herald and discovered a 2-page spread. For a ‘come from away’ who moved to Newfoundland 10 years ago, there is no bigger honour than to see yourself featured in a magazine that doesn’t get more Newfoundland!
