Born in Windsor, Ontario and now based in Montreal, I sing folk songs about having one foot in the door and the other foot out. I’ve been writing music since the age of 12, and have toured in Canada and Europe as a member of Krief, The Custom Outfit, and Glass Passenger, and as a solo performer singing my own songs.
This website was opened January 1, 2010, as a challenge to myself to write and record a song every week for an entire year. I did pretty well at the beginning but ultimately, over the course of my final semester at the University of Windsor, a move to Montreal, the recording of an album and yet another move to a second apartment in Montreal, I only finished 17 songs. I revamped the website to be a little more multi-purpose, but I have continued to add the occasional recording and plan on eventually getting to the elusive 52nd song.
A few things about me:
I was born on the first of July. Exactly 115 years later I achieved legal independence.
I ain’t ever gonna die.
I don’t know what it means to be Canadian. I don’t think it means anything.
My goal as a musician is to be my own favourite musician.
Every song I write is either about death or traveling (and no, death is not a journey, it’s a conclusion).
If you could really die by sticking a fork in a toaster, I would have done it by now.
The things I haven’t done far outweigh the things I have.
I’ve only written one good poem, and I think that’s enough.
