Shattered Dreams 1

So I used to doodle when I was a kid and throughout school but pretty much stopped drawing all together as I got older. Then I got this idea to do a web comic series about some poor bastard who is always trying to be optimistic and look on the bright side of things but ultimately ends up getting shot down by his counterpart who dishes out cold, hard truths that demotivate entirely. Somewhat nostalgic of my life. Anyways here’s the first comic I’ve drawn in like 15 years. The artwork could use some improvement. Give it time. I can only go up from here.

Going Home

It’s been awhile since my last post. Aside from not having much news to share in regards to my music, I was kind of down in the dumps for the spring and summer. A lot of changes have been taking place in that time. Almost too much to wrap my head around.

Perhaps the first and most impactful change was the loss of one of my oldest and closest friends, Justin Stephen this past April. He passed unexpectedly and his absence is felt greatly each and every day. It’s been 5 months, almost half a year now and I still can’t seem to digest what’s happened.

Justin and I grew up together over the years and one of the most fundamental aspects of our friendship was our love and passion for music and film. We spent countless hours over the years daydreaming about our future. Talking about how we were going to be celebrities in music and film and how we were going to live the dream. Haha we had so much spirit back then!

But now it is up to me to carry that dream and move forward with more determination than ever before to see it realized. I have to do this now not just for me but for Justin as well. I can’t give up. Life is too short. That becomes clearer every day. The best way I can honour my dear friend is too see our dreams realized.

I wrote this song shortly after I received the news of Justin’s passing. It’s called ‘Going Home’ and it carries the emotion of my broken heart at the loss of a true companion I did not foresee leaving this earth for still many years to come.

CBC SearchLight Contest

Searchlight2015-Default-16x9-1024x576

Hey everyone I just wanted to let you know I am now an official contestant in the CBC SearchLight contest which aims to help discover new musical talent here in Canada. The contest is nationwide but your ability to rise in the ranks is based on local voting which is done via my CBC artist page. Anyways regardless of the final outcome, the exposure this contest could offer is a worthwhile pursuit on it’s own.

I would really appreciate everyone’s support if they were able to just take a moment of their time and score me a vote by visiting my CBC page here and clicking the “vote for this artist” button on the bottom right corner of the page. Every vote counts and makes a difference and so I can’t thank you enough! Will definitely keep you guys posted on the progress of the competition as things move forward! Have a great week!
