Demand was so high for the Forward Music Revue show this Saturday that we’ve added a 2nd show that night! Paper Beat Scissors will perform a short set as a 7-piece, and there’ll be performances from Gianna Lauren, Acres and Acres, Josh Van Tassel and the Olympic Symphonium, as a very secret, very special guest!
Get your tickets early to avoid disappointment – shows at 7pm and 10pm SHARP!!!
So, just wanted to keep you up to date with a few new shows, some of which I’ve been keeping under my hat. It’s going to be a spring of festivals, starting off with TWO 7-piece ensemble shows in Halifax, during the East Coast Music Awards. March 8th is at the Seahorse, March 9th at the Khyber as part of the Forward Music Revue. Make sure to get tickets early for both of these, as they’ll sell out FAST. After a trip up to Canadian Music Week in Toronto, I will fly out to Newfoundland to play the 3rd annual Lawnya Vawnya Festival! This is such a great event – and I’m SO EXCITED to get back to Newfoundland again so soon after my all-too-brief visit in November. Continue reading →
I hope wherever you are it’s not as cold as wherever I am. I am struggling to find the willpower to leave the house at the moment. It’s definitely been a two pairs of socks kind of winter.

It’s given me the time to work on some new demos, and just this week I wrapped up mixing and mastering a live recording that will be released in spring – more on that coming soon!
Did I tell you that I and Kyle (from Forward) set up our own little record label? It’s called Backward, and its all about ambient and experimental, largely instrumental music. We put out a compilation in October (featuring a couple of instrumental tracks from yours truly, Toronto’s Josh Van Tassel, and New York’s Bing and Ruth) and there are more releases to come. We wanted to slow people down a little with this thing, and the website is a big part of it. It’s designed by literal web-design genius Daniel Espeset. Go and hang out there and watch and listen:
