you may have noticed that the site was down for a few days.. sorry about that. i’m reconfiguring some stuff and learning that i have to learn some other stuff to get the afforementioned previous prior stuff reconfigured. i expect more bleeps and bloops but at least i have a forum (that isn’t facebook) where i […]
Ten new songs conceived and brought forth right here at Sounds Like Vic City studio. I’m pretty happy about this album; it’s a sizeable departure from a lot of my previous material. I dug into a number of influences that I haven’t really tried before – mostly on account of my wife’s excellent Sunday Morning Pre […]
…ironing out kinks and then re-kinking until just the right balance of smooth corrugation is achieved. Some involved sustained injuries in the process.
it’s been quite a while since i’ve posted something here. since then, i’ve released two albums (the most recent being the one above), moved across the country (to victoria, b.c.), produced a few albums (which I’ll be posting links to soon), and have started to put together a studio. there are other things, as […]
As some of you may already know, my soul outfit – The Miracle Sweat – will be playing next Saturday night at the fabulous Horseshoe Tavern. We’ve expanded on our already sizeable sound with the addition of slammin’ keyboardist Graham Scott (with Hammond & Leslie in tow), and we’ve also got a new low-end-meister: Mark […]

i can’t help but feel like I’ve crawled back into my radio shack walkman to pull all sorts of inspiration from the stuff my 15-year-old self could relate to but couldn’t quite grasp why. i only gave myself one rule for this record: let (what’s left of) your hair down and don’t overthink it. normally, […]
i am fortunate; things have aligned in such a way that i am once again able to play with the same gang that joined me for a presentation of the entire soul mange album in march. it can be difficult to get so many in-demand musicians together for a practice, let alone a show… but we’re able […]
Playing this year’s Halifax Pop Explosion will be yours truly and his talented colleagues; and we hope to debut a new track of that approgsimates (freshly coined!) what everyone has always wanted to hear but could never put a sound to. Not many posts on this site, I know, but new material of this nature […]
