For the Church – Out Now!

For the Church – Out Now!

It is with tremendous excitement that I am stoked to announce that the “For the Church (EP)” is out now on major music platforms! (CD’s soon to follow). This EP has been a while in the making. From writing to sharing I think we’re talking about 7ish months…

This EP is very near and dear to me for a number of reasons:

  1. These are songs about my Faith – My relationship with the Lord and the faith I have in Him.
  2. They are lyrically direct – Very intentional lyrics about a very particular topic
  3. They are musically diverse – To me making this music was a task… Everything you hear was done in the basement with a handful of microphones and limited software… I was aiming for a funky style of sound that was real but also supported by electronic sounds.
  4. They have gotten the BEST FEEDBACK – Of any project I have ever taken on I have been most encouraged, through this one for sure!

I hope this EP is enjoyed by all who get a chance to listen; whether it be to edify those who share in the Faith, pondered by those who haven’t, or just liked by those who hear it. Take a listen and tell me what you think!


Countdown is On…

Countdown is On…

There is officially less than 24 hours until the “For the Church (EP)” is released. I am so excited to share with everyone this EP that has been a while in the making, and I truly hope that it is received well!

For The Church (EP) Update

For The Church (EP) Update

It is with great anticipation, and some crazy excitement, that I get to post here that the “For The Church (EP)” is most certainly going to be available January 1, 2019. 

Start to finish I believe this project was 7 months on the go with some ups and downs, but nonetheless the 5 songs are ready for those who are willing to hear them!

This whole project has been a wild venture into a number of new things for me and I hope you take the time to listen to it. For those who are eager to hear what this short EP will be like, keep on the lookout because December 14, the ‘Lead Me – Single’ will be released

‘Lead Me’ is a song that is really more of a personal prayer. Check it out on December 14, then wait for the album on January 1, 2019 (CD’s Available shortly thereafter)

24 Days…

24 Days…

Less than one month til the “For the Church – EP” hits the world… or at least whoever is willing to listen! 

I am so excited to be working on this amazing project for everyone to hear. It’s been a long time since this was even just a few song lines on a page, and I’m really looking forward to it. A short 5 track EP with songs rooted in my faith and an interlude titled “The Reason” which explains why I decided to do it. 

Fun story; I was on the phone with a friend when I had this crazy idea to make the interlude’s explanation speech start by having a few friends ask ‘why i wanted to do a christian EP’ over the phone. So when it comes time for people to hear it, I suppose I do have 6 features now. 

For anyone maybe interested in hearing it, but not coming from a church background, I would certainly hope you give this album a chance and listen to it, and even ponder over it.

24 days… 

Hey! Here’s a sneak peak at the songs to be on it!

49 Days…

49 Days…

I think I’ve made it pretty known that something is on its way… And now that we’re under 50 days I figured It may be worth a mention. So for now I’m only gonna leave you with 2 things; a name and a cover.

This EP will be available January 1, 2019 on all major music platforms and in CD form. More to come on this project soon and thanks for the support!

Mark you Calender’s for January 1, 2019 as I tackle a whole new style with this EP – ‘For The Church’

RUN – Acoustic

RUN – Acoustic

Ladies and Gents I give to you… Run. Yesterday we competed in the Battle of the Bands for a chance to open the LEX Party. Although we won the competition, the party was cancelled due to the weather. In our utterly depressed state we took to the basement and recorded a version of the newest song RUN which was premiered Yesterday with the newest member Josh Lacroix. In this you will find: 4 dudes, some instruments, and a voice crack…. Enjoy!

Sooooo….

First of all I would encourage you all to take a look at the events page… Because a couple things have made their way onto it towards the end of August!

Little tidbit for everyone:

As mentioned before, I am planning to release  2 Ep’s this year and soon; one with the band, and one as a solo venture for church music.

So here you go: The artwork for the Church – EP (not the name so we are all clear)

Anyways, names, songs, sounds, and more  coming soon!

Alright so here’s the scoop….

I’ve been on a crazy music lull lately. For a while there has been no part of me that has actually actively wanted to pick up an instrument, just because I could. So this in mind (and going on for a while) I kinda thought maybe a string of shows would help.

Nah. It did not. I played four shows in a week. All solo. One of which was even on a stage I’ve wanted to play on for a while and yet, nothing.

Two more weeks go by, and for pure disciplinary purposes, I picked up a guitar for a half hour and just kinda muddled on it. Nothing crazy exciting happened. Sure enough, a buddy had me wandering around a golf course after-hours and I took this picture and for whatever reason some part of me was thrown back into some lyrics I wrote a while ago specifically about colour schemes in the sky.

Between the picture and the soon-after show at the Social Pub  (June 10)  I’m really pumped to just invite you all to stay tuned as the Band plans to release some cool news this summer! Furthermore I am going to be taking on a small solo project of my own which I am super excited for!

~ More on both of these to come ~

All this to say I’m feeling driven again to do what I’ve always wanted to do and I appreciate the support!

Keep an ear out!

Superstition – 2017

Hey all,

I’d been going through videos putting together some media to use for demos for upcoming opportunities, and one of the ones  that I found myself grooving to was Superstition from last year. This was the Band’s performance from July 15, 2017  in the Parkette on Kent Street.

Enjoy!
