I planned on releasing a different song to you but I’m experiencing technical difficulties with Logic Pro that’s preventing me from bouncing down a final mix to show you guys. It’s also preventing me from making/saving any new material I may create. So I fired up our good old friend, GarageBand. I promised myself I would release a song so I challenged myself to sit down and write, compose, mix, and release a song in a day.
The point wasn’t to release something quick but rather to prove to myself that the only thing keeping me from releasing new content and creating new art is myself. All you have to do is sit down and play. It’s that easy to make music. Sometimes it’s easy to lose sight of how easy it can be with trying to get the latest programs, gear, VST’s, and plug-in’s to get the best sounds. Sometimes what you need to remember is that the creative part of you doesn’t need any of that. Cometh was made with GarageBand using all stock instruments and sounds. I know it may not be as high quality as previous tracks I’ve released but the song itself stands on it’s own.
So enjoy this creation. In all it’s glory, imperfections, and warts and all. Turn your volume up, press play, and let the experience of music take you.
It’s with great gratitude that I can say that my old band Goodbye Sky Harbour‘s CD ‘Tired Hearts‘ has reached past the 100 download mark! We’ve officially been disbanded as of 2012, so naturally as I do with all music I’m involved in, I’ve posted it online so as many people as possible could be able to enjoy the sonic combinations we were able to put together. Today marks the day that over 100 of you beautiful people took us into your ears. We worked really hard to get this puppy put together and I hope when you listen to it you can hear how much it meant to us.

Check out the latest creation that I made with my friend, Mitch. Check out his soundcloud and enjoy his other creations too! Mitch is a very talent guitar player with one of the best styles I’ve witnessed in my life! CoupeDeville is a very heavy mix of both of our favourite genres of metal, Djent and Power Metal. It was fun to make music that quick and groovy. Pay close attention (with headphones on) to the breakdown of this piece. We had to detune some instruments to make it even heavier. I hope you appreciate it! Enjoy, CoupeDeville!
I have something special for you! It’s a brand new song AND and brand new video all in one! The song is called ‘Embrace‘ and it was inspired by video footage my lover, Becca, took of some nature in Vancouver, British Columbia. Check it out HERE or watch it embedded below. You can also find a link to download the song for completely FREE, so get your download today by clicking the link below!
I hope you didn’t just arrive in a happy and energetic mood, not because I don’t want you to be feeling that way, but I have a new song for you and it may just knock you down into sadness territory. YOU HAVE BEEN WARNED!!! Now that you know what to expect I’d like to introduce you to the new song, ‘Self Sabotage‘. It’s a song I wrote on piano when trying to conjure demons inside my head. Finding what unique sounds are hidden the dark parts of you is an interesting method of writing that I quite enjoy. I hope this song finds it’s way into the dark part of your heart… in the good way.
