Hey Everyone! How's your summer going? It's been
really busy here on the island playing shows and
booking festivals into 2011. My EP "The Wonderbro
Remixes" is doing really well and thanks to all of
you for providing feedback! I'm winding down my
hectic schedule a little, and gearing up for some
great shows in Vancouver and across the island
into the Fall. I've gone solo, and am having a
blast learning new instruments and experimenting
with my sound. I've also been accepted into the
2011 Nannup Music Festival in Western Australia
next spring! That's all for now,
BC Tour July 2010
I'm gearing up for a busy summer in Canada. The
gypsy caravan is quickly taking shape and coming
to a town near you!
After a quick trip to Barcelona, Spain and the
Vancouver Island Music Business Conference in
June, I'll be on the bus touring British Columbia
in July. If you're in the area, stop by the merch
table and say hello! I'd love to meet you;)
Thanks for your support!

Good early afternoon!
It's the last day of August and gray out there
already. A few more shows to play and then I'm
hiding away to write and make some videos. I'm
actually looking forward to being inside, watching
the wind wrap around the trees, and getting back
to my studio desk. Imogen Heap is really inspiring
me right now. As is my hankering for the cajon
drum...I think I might add one to my live show.
Off to get a tune up on the sax & pick up my
I've been seeing more RC50's out there
lately...Anyone know how to remedy the feedback
issue our poor sound techs are having with it?
Also, it seems that the loops I'm recording are
loud enough when going in, but sound much quieter
during playback. Where's my manual...
