September 5, 2019 - NEW album “Common Senseless” available September 27. Pre-order it now in the web shop
Hey folks, Summer is almost over. hurricanes are blowing up the coast. politicians are doing dumb shit everywhere and i have a new album coming out. big surprise!!
common senseless is a 13 track album. it was recorded over the past one and a half years with adam gallant at the hill sound in charlottetown, pei. that’s where we live. it’s got a lot to offer. a beautiful variety of songs of love, cynicism, doubt, current affairs, fortune and mental health.
i produced it and played a large chunk of the parts. adam played bass on it. roger carter played most of the drums. we had a great time.
it’s available for pre-order now in the webstore. there are 3 singles streaming at the moment, so head over to your favourite rip off platform and have a listen. if you like what you hear, the best case scenario for me is that you support my music with the purchase of a physical item. if that’s not your thing, that’s ok…but i want you to know that these days, songwriters and artists survive on this kind of support, and we love you so deeply for it. that may sound cheeky, but it’s never been more true.
i don’t have much lined up for the fall and winter, but i have plenty coming in 2020. more and more and more.
thank you everyone.

Happy Canadian thanksgiving to all the beauties in the world. a few things to report at the moment.
my song “I have no idea” is featured in a new film called “the new romantic” that hits theatres in Canada and the United States soon. keep your eyes peeled for it.
I’ve been writing a lot of new songs and recording demos, etc…working on some new things but with no real end in sight. I want to keep this process up through 2019, with the possibility of some singles throughout next year.
I have just signed on with a new agency in Canada called cool cats. we will begin working on new show dates for next year very soon. stay tuned.
there is a new video on the way for my song “stoned”. it was created by Aiden searle of egg creative. i’m excited to share it with you. it will be available to view very soon. legalization of marijuana in this country is imminent and I figured, why not celebrate it with a new video.
That’s it for now folks. Hope everyone is happy and safe. The world is nuts.
