INTO THE WILDERNESS

It’s amazing how powerful “sure, why not” can be. That was my response when my manager asked me if I was interested in auditioning for a film. So here we are, and I couldn’t be more thankful to the Wilderness team for taking a chance on me— I’m so excited to share that I’m going to be in a movie!!! AND cherry on top— I get to write music for it! Check out the article below to learn more!

I still have a goofy grin on my face about all of the amazing humans I had the pleasure of spending time with over the last week.

Four Chords & The Truth

Andrea England's "Four Chords & The Truth" has been one of my favourite performance experiences since I moved to Toronto. It was such an honour to be invited to play as an emerging songwriter on the same stage with these artists. If you're ever in Toronto and are looking for a great show to take in, do yourself a favour and get tickets to this songwriter round at The Dakota Tavern!
