Music offers me a means to journey to unseen places, and explore. In this way, it is a form of environmental study – exploring the environments within myself, which act as mirrors to the outside, close and faraway.
BROKEN DEER - A lo-fi recording project exploring ancestry (namely my aboriginal ancestry), rural landscapes, decay, nature and forgotten wildernesses, waiting to be re-discovered.
UNSEEN WORLD - My new solo, musical project. Covering a lot of terrain, exploring sonic environments.
PLAY GUITAR - An art-pop collaboration with Christian Simmons (guitar, vocals) and Kerri Landry (bass, vocals). I played drums. “Canadian trio with a solid outside fix on pop dynamics. They have a jittery edge that recalls The Feelies a bit, but it’s wrapped in something both doughy and disjointed. Does that mean it sounds like The Bongos? Not really.” -Byron Coley, WIRE.
CYMATICS - Visu-electro-post-rock-blues-pop collaboration with Erin Corbett (visuals) and Andrew G. Smith (bass, synth, vocals) in Whitehorse, Yukon. I played drums.
BLOW UP - A short-lived Spice Girls re-interpretation band based in Whitehorse, Yukon. Collaboration with Hilde Festerling (vocals, dramatics). I played guitar and sang.
OH, BEAUTIFUL! MAJESTIC! EAGLE! - My first band. Captured the energy of play and being overwhelmed by big sounds. Collaboration with Ashleigh Gaul (keys and synths), Laura Trethewey (bells and accord), Shannon Webb-Campbell (bassy and nest), and, sometimes, Bridgette Sullivan (signs). I played drums, keyboard, and sang, sometimes.
