New Video and Quebec Show

Towards the end of Montreal’s sweltering summer, local artist and musician Nicholas Schofield put together a beautiful new video for the Go On album track Unfazed.  It features Alexia Avina (of Best Fern), and you can watch it right HERE.

Show in Montreal

Leading up to festive times, PBS will be sharing a show with our dear friends Wander Years.  It’s happening at Casa, and it will be a busy one, so get your tickets early!  in Montreal I’ll be playing with the band that toured Europe last year of Mike Feuerstack, Tessa Kautzman, Gregory Burton and Alex Thibault, and maybe even a few special non-denominational Christmas guests (if you’re lucky, which you probably will be)!

Montreal/Toronto Shows Backing up Camille Delean and Andrew Sisk

Coming up this weekend I’ll be joining Michael Feuerstack to back up Camille Delean.  Camille’s in the process of putting the finishing touches to her beautiful debut album (produced by Mike), and I’m very happy to have been asked to get onboard in the run up to this release.  We play Montreal this Saturday 19th at Petit Campus opening for Jim Bryson (Tragically Hip, the Weakerthans), then head up to the Burdock in Toronto Sunday 20th.  Tickets and further details below, and while you wait for the album, you can watch the video for Camille’s beautiful track Black Sail here.

I’ll be back at the Burdock one week later (if it ain’t broke, etc., etc…) to play some clarinet with Andrew Sisk.  I had the pleasure of recording some woodwind arrangements for Andrew’s upcoming record, and it will be great to play them live for the first time.  In between these shows I’ll be finishing recording the bed tracks for the new album with a couple of gems known as Marshall Bureau (drums) and JJ Ipsen (bass).

Western Canadian Shows this Week and a New Remix


I’m finally emerging from my cave on Buffalo Mountain and breaking my radio silence.  I’ve had an incredibly inspirational time up here at the Banff Centre for the Arts this month – had my orchestral clarinet debut during a performance of Richard Reed Parry’s gorgeous piece “Music for Heart and Breath”, got very lucky with my roommate who happens to be a fantastic baker, as well as the conductor of the Tel Aviv Opera and took a breathtaking tiny plane ride through the Rocky mountains which was incredible for the first half, even if I did spend the second half trying very hard not to throw up from the motion sickness.

Western Canadian Shows

The Western Canadian dates are coming this week, including the first Calgary show since my 2013 Sled Island show was cancelled in the floods.  Vancouver folks – please take note that the 21st show has moved to Merge, and that there’s a whole extra show happening on Sunday 23rd, too!  I’ve had my head immersed inside a boiling creative cauldron for the last month, so expect lots of hot new material!

Last month I had the pleasure of working on a remix for the German electronic artist Allie – I worked on the track Mamase, and in his own words “you made it darker than the original, i didn’t think that’s possible!” have a listen:

or Spotify:

If you don’t already know Allie, you should check his stuff out online – “Body Poetry” has been one of my all-time faves since I heard it live in Braunschweig in 2011

New Video on its way VERY SOON

Over the closing of the summer in Montreal I worked with Nick Schofield and Alexia Avina on a new video for the Go On track “Unfazed” – there’ll be a premiere online, soon – keep your noses pinned here for more of the newest news.
