Le Cypher! This is an amazing weekly jam that happens in downtown Montreal. Basically a full house band of some of our city’s hottest players hold it down and improvise from 10-3am. This is where Vocalists, MC’s and musicians come to sit in with the band and create magic.
Tonight I will be playing a set of my tunes from 9-10 before the jamming begins. Ive been looking forward to this for a wee bit now. And after being a part of first date on the K-OS’s and Saul Williams tour last night, the inspiration is within me. Muahaha!
Earlier this year I launched a KickStarter campaign to help with the printing of my record TEN and to shoot a music video for one song off the album. The video is in its final stages of production and the vinyl is finally here.

Songs are little stories we have the pleasure of hearing. I hear them and I make them into sounds. After that, they have lives of their own. 3 songs from my record TEN have been reincarnated by 3 wonderful Montreal producers. The results of which can be downloaded and enjoyed online NOW This Saturday at Notre Dam des Quilles we will have a little launch party hosted by High Fantasy. Won’t you join us?
Last week, I had the pleasure of working with some amazing women on the set of my first music video for TEN.

TEN is now available on itunes and I couldn’t be happier.
