A Taste of Homeless
A taste of our audio-visual project, HOMELESS. It was an honour to perform effected/looped flute/backup vocals on this. We look forward to performing this lots more and recording/releasing a soundtrack for it in 2018! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=z71Dx8GNTH8
New Brunswick Tour / MusicNL Award Nomination
Home sweet home in St. John’s after driving 6400 km. From St. John’s to Fredericton to Saint John to Evandale to Sussex to Bathurst to Lameque Island to Cheticamp Island to Stephenville to Burgeo and the long drive home. 2 awesome mechanics for the flat tire and cranky muffler, so many beautiful sunsets, inspiring music, my lovely Acadian family, delicious food and so much more. To top it all off? Arriving at home to discover a MusicNL nomination for Instrumental Recording of the Year for SUNSET SUNRISE! It feels good to be home with this warm heart and so many wonderful memories. To all of you who I was so fortunate to spend time with on the road, THANK YOU. Sending a special thanks to Floodstock and Third Shift – Art Works After Dark in Saint John for such amazing performing experiences. I can’t wait to tour through New Brunswick again.

From the River to the Ocean gets an ECMA Nomination!
I am pleased to announce an East Coast Music Association (ECMA) award nomination for my original soundtrack, FROM THE RIVER TO THE OCEAN in Electronic Recording of the Year!!! What a huge honour. I really couldn’t have created this soundtrack without inspiration and support from the Cucalorus Film Festival, MusicNL and the talent of some pretty amazing musicians and engineers: Craig Follett, Brent Beshara, Brad Weber, Justin Merdsoy and Krisjan Leslie. See you in Saint John, New Brunswick for ECMA Week!
