I wrote this song in March 2020.  I felt pummeled by news of riots, racism, separation anxiety, financial crisis, the ongoing pandemic and loved ones facing cancer. When is it ever going to feel like the right time? 

The answer to me is never. These things are part of the past, present and future. There’s always a source of negativity in life. A silver lining is not always visible in a cloud. You have to hang in there and have faith that you will see it again. 

This pandemic is not over. We are not out of the woods yet, but we are closer. This song was written about looking for the good amongst everything going on. It's about treating good news like a resource just like water or sunlight. We need it to survive no matter how much or how little we get. And it is there, you just have to look. 

Here is my latest video: Silver Lining. I hope you enjoy.

Live Album.

I love performing live. It's a huge part of what I have been doing for the last 15 or so years of playing music. So in 2018 I decided to get my trio together and record live in front of an audience, capturing the songs I've been playing recently. It includes a few previously unrecorded tracks (like the title song, The Dog is Dead) to a few older favourites (like Baseball Diamond) and a couple of my favourite covers. I would love it if you would take a listen!

PEOPLE PEOPLE

I've been recording an album with Eric Eggleston of Johnny Hall Productions for the last 2 years, and it's finally come together as an EP called Mozart Candy. 

This album features strong pop hooks, layers of sampled sound bites and synths. There are psychedelic twists and turns and adventurous trippy instrumental moments that tie a lot of the individual songs together. There are elements of jazz, hip hop , rock and easy listening pop layered with experimental synths - a lot of the sounds were created in the studio by blending and tweaking pianos and synths while also pulling in drum samples and randomly recorded elements such as spoons. 

Check out the first single off this album, called PEOPLE PEOPLE. If you'd like to read more about it, and watch the making of video,  check out this page: PEOPLE PEOPLE
