After a successful release of my debut album Pacifc Blood, at Victoria's Belfry Theater, I will be bringing my one man performance to The Duncan Showroom. Pacific Blood is a instrumental album written for Vancouver Island and life in the beautiful Pacific Northwest. I grew up in the Cowichan Valley and any chance I'm given to bring my music home is always very exciting. The end of 2016 saw UK based Weissenborn Information Exchange awarding Pacific Blood with 2016 Weissenborn Album of the Year. Be sure to stream Pacific Blood on my websites music tab.
Feburary 4th, 2017

It is with great pride to announce that Pacific Blood has won Best Weissenborn Album of 2016 through UK based Weissenborn Information Exchange. The album as a whole was a long labour of love, and to have my peers and those I look up to recognize it as such is very rewarding. So with the start of a new year I would like to thank all those who could be a part of Pacific Blood, both local and abroad. In October of 2014 I set out with an idea, to keep a One Track Mind until this album was complete. Little did I know it was the beginning of something much larger than originally intended. Through the help of those around me I was able to put my full being into this project and create a collection of songs I will forever be proud of. I am grateful of the journey this album had to connect me with so many wonderful people around the globe. I hope that one day in the not too distant future I can travel with these songs to the places people have been reaching out to me from.
Heres to a wonderful 2017. Happy New Year.
