I am very excited to have my latest single “If All We Have is Now” available in the OOL store! It was originally composed to be part of a charity compilation on HawkMoon Records at the end of 2016.
I have made just a couple tweaks to the mastering since then and the newer version is available here.
A few weeks back I was interviewed by my friend David Mantel for his podcast “The Broken Light Show”.
It’s my first ever audio interview, and as I’m not very good at, well…talking, I fumble around a lot – BUT, I do think that there are some good and important things that we discussed! Things like the value of art in the current paradigm and how I feel that giving away ‘free’ music often undermines it’s own perceived value.
It was a great time and you can hear it on his podcast here: The Broken Light Show
Go ahead and subscribe while you’re at it! There are some great artists like Andrew & Michael Tasselmyer(Hotel Neon, The Sound of Rescue) & Andy Othling(Lowercase Noises) in other episodes. My interview is in episode 4.
I have a new little project that I’ve started over on Mixcloud. It’s a conceptual playlist called Colour Theories.
Let me describe it.
Each playlist in the series will consist of 8 tracks: a ‘theme’ track which I’ve written and then 7 tracks by other artists ‘numbered’ not with digits but by the colour spectrum(ROYGBIV). Each song has something to do with that particular colour, either something in the title or that just the mood that the song gives me.
It’s a fantastic playlist, if I do say so myself, with tracks from Helios, Amman.Josh, Hammock, Moshimoss, Lowercase Noises, Stray Theories and Aural Method. So head on over to Mixcloud and give it a listen!
My Colour Theories track is now available in the shop.
*just a note – I have since deleted my account Mixcloud and thus the show no longer exists*
…of MY batch of Transit CDs!
So you can’t get any more from me personally, but the remainder of the edition of 50 is still available at the Polar Seas Recordings’ bandcamp page:
So if you still want one, head on over there to get it.
People who have received them have been posting photos on twitter with the hashtag: #mylunartransit
I’ve also been posting the photos on my Facebook page as well if you’d like to see them.
I am extremely happy to announce that my very first full length album is now my very first physical CD!
It is a Limited Edition of 50 and includes the CD, 8 page booklet and a unique one-of-a-kind piece of artwork all packaged in a hand stamped and numbered envelope. It also contains 2 bonus tracks(‘equinox‘ & ‘in the decay of shadows(piano only)‘) only available on the CD.
It is on the local Toronto label Polar Seas Recordings run by Brad Deschamps and Mike Abercrombie of North Atlantic Drift. They are a couple of wonderful guys.
Below you can see a few examples of the artwork. Every one is different!
I had a bit of free time the other day so I decided to sit down and do another ambient sketch video. The piece was written rather quickly as the purpose of these videos is to be a bit more loose and improvisational then I usually am.
There are no swells this time, just a textured guitar sound that I created in Guitar Rig.
Thanks for watching!
I am excited to announce that soon I will be releasing Transit, my first full length album on CD! It will be put out on Polar Seas Recordings, a local Toronto label run by Brad Deschamps and Mike Abercrombie of North Atlantic Drift. They just released their latest album, which you should check out as well. These guys are good!
I’ll let you know more in the next little bit, but it will contain 2 extra tracks! One piano only version of ‘in the decay of shadows’ and a brand new track ‘equinox’.
I’m working on some unique artwork at the moment for the release.
I woke up this morning finding out that one of my tracks ‘in the decay of shadows’ has been included in a podcast mix by Micah of Stray Theories!
There are some amazing tracks included in the mix, some by my musical heroes!
So wonderful to be included in this.
I highly encourage you to check it out here.
