The Curious Case of the Past - 2010



I grew up in the countryside just outside of Windsor, Ontario. I like to think the peaceful setting has defined my sound - soothing piano melodies.

I have been playing and singing for quite a few years now and in 2010 wrote and produced my first full-length album, The Curious Case of the Past.

Its a funny little title for an album but the past is an interesting thing when you try to sum it up in a story or a set of songs. There wasn't one theme or topic - it wasn't just heartbreak, or love, or loss, rather it was simply my life. I do like to get to know people and it's likely why I naturally share intimate pieces of myself in songs. Im sharing to build connections and I suppose to say, "Here's what happened to me, here's how I've been going through it." Realistic lyrics with a universal appeal, because storytelling is in our nature as people. We like to share stories and make connections, whether it's chatting with a friend, listening to a podcast, talking over dinner or having someone sing us a song. So these are all personal stories - everyday details woven into larger dreams and tales.

I am currently working on my second full-length album and have enjoyed very much playing out across Southwestern Ontario and into the United States with my first LP. One of the songs made its way into a movie and recently I have been booked to play on VIA Rail as an Artist on Board for fall 2014. I have joined in on some neat festivals, I have spent hours serenading in a wine bar over dinner hour. Music has allowed me to be a part of some wonderful communities, most recently Stratford, Ontario. It is all an incredible way to experience life - meeting an array of interesting people and sharing so many stories, but then throughout it all I get to play the piano and sing. What an absolute joy.
