Live Show Ritual:

I’ll usually just throw in some headphones and listen with my eyes closed to get in the zone.

Favourite local artist:

So many! 86LOVE, year over year, Jared Daniel, Widmore, Colour in the Clouds. I’m lucky to know so many creative and talented local artists.

Nose Hill or Fish Creek??

Nose Hill!

EP or LP?

I love concept LP’s and seeing how artists fill out an album but I think EP’s are important as well. Tough question, I’ll go with LP.

Early bird or night owl?

Night owl without a doubt.

Road or studio?

Both have their charm! Being in the middle of a pandemic I’d say the opportunity to get on the road sounds more appealing at the moment, you always want what you can’t have 🙁

Where can we follow you?
