Hey everyone, I just want to thank everyone for their support towards this album release. We have a couple more things we're working on before we release "The Moonshine" to streaming platforms, but I promise it's coming soon. I can honestly say I've never been happier with my career path as a musician and I'm beyond ecstatic over how these songs turned out sounding.
Iain McNally did an incredible job playing majority of the instrumentation, and the incredible musicians who accepted his invitations to be featured (Janna Leduc and Jay Riehl of Thorn and Roses, Rick Roach and Tony Rozic of Soul Tripper, Paul Intson, and Steve O'Connor) added so much to substance of each track. Paul Intson did an incredible job mixing and mastering, and I can't express how thankful I am to have connected with him. He's quickly becoming one of my favourite people to converse with.

Love You Anyhow
I like to summarize this song as an song about unconditional love. To a degree, I believe that this would be most accurate if I were to describe the song's sentiment in two words. That wouldn't satisfy the knack for storytelling that has wore off on me from hanging out with Kyle Furlong though.
"Timbercreek" is a song about parting ways with a similar sentiment to "Wild World", in my interpretation anyway. Whether it's a lover, relative, furry or feathered relative, child, parent, car, etc., there are memories attached to things and people. Thanks to Pixar, we're even more consciously aware of our habit to personify inanimate objects like the Mars Rover. :'(
This is going to be the title track on my upcoming album. "Moonshine" is a song about sitting at the side of a middle of nowhere road to decompress when life feels too crowded. Whether it's thoughts, people, stress from work, we all need this from time to time.
As my 2019 album got closer to completion, I started thinking it would be a neat idea to share an acoustic preview of the songs. Now I'm just going to do my best to put my candid thoughts here as regularly as I can.
