O to have been born in a different era; I should have been a prehistoric bird. Screeching freely over expanses of green and blue instead of sitting hunched over a computer screen, anxiously composing text, striving to strike the perfect tone that is not too needy, not too blasé, not humourless, serious enough to be taken seriously. I have deleted all of this numerous times. I have long resisted making a page here, but recently I thought: what the hell, I'll try it at least. Here I am in the 21st century, in this mammalian form, in this grey concrete metropolis of Toronto, trying to carry on in such a way that I feel I am contributing something meaningful to the world -- seeking to share some form of solace and transcendence through music and art.
I am a musician and artist living in Toronto. I write songs that have been described as "minimalist holy blues" and "folk noir," and I also make visual art. 
While I have listeners who have followed and supported my work for a long time now, I struggle to make a very modest living and to be able to continue recording and releasing music.
It is a dream of mine to be able to do some touring and play for more of the people who feel a connection to what I am creating.
I have 26 releases available for purchase on Bandcamp -- but the reality is that most people choose to only stream music and do not download or purchase it, which is very hard on artists like myself who are completely independent.
If you enjoy the music and art that I share, and you have the means to do so, please consider making a small contribution. Every little bit will help me to continue existing as an artist.
Thanks for reading.
