Growing up I spent most of my weekends busking in Calgary with my father and sister. The money we made would go towards lessons and new instruments. Throughout the years we learned to play the violin, mandolin, accordion, guitar, bass, trumpet, saxophone, harmonica and piano. Through out middle school and most of high school, we performed as a family, country/ rock cover band for cooperate gigs, weddings and christmas parties. After I graduated, I joined a band called Won Over Nothing as the bassist, vocalist and harmonica player. We were a young rage against the machine, rock, hip-hip union. We played for a few years around Calgary and inevitably broke up as most young bands do. It didn't take long for me to realize that I needed to be performing and playing music for the rest of my life. I started going to open mics with my acoustic guitar and harmonicas playing covers and a few originals, which over the last 2 years has evolved into me opening up The Amphitheatre at Shambhala Music Festival as a Live Looping, Multi-instrumentalist.
I am on the journey of perfecting my sound through live entertainment and production. Equipped with an electric violin, telecaster guitar, purple heart shaped bass and a belt of harmonicas, while rapping and singing over top of the live production.
My vision is to fuse genres of music together with live instruments, production and entertainment. I want to create good music. I want to create the type of music you ride down a mountain to, or skate, longboard and surf to. The kind of music you listen to on a scenic ocean, mountain highway with the sun beaming through the open windows.
Music is a universal language. I want to travel and make a living doing what I love, expressing my rawest emotions, connecting and inspiring.
Life is short xx
