’Music with MALbec’

My New Year’s resolution is to release a lot more music and video content. I’ve had this little video campaign idea for a while and it was time I finally got my butt in gear and started.. and who doesn’t like music, friends, and wine? My plan is to collaborate with other artists and release live cover videos of some of my favourite songs. These won’t be weekly videos, but the goal is to release one every few weeks or at least once a month, even if that means I don’t have my talented bro making them look all fancy for me :P

So here’s video #1. I’ve been wanting to cover this song for some time now and can’t think of anyone better to sing it with. Andrew Rodgers has one of my favourite voices in Newfoundland and I’m so excited to feature him in this video. Make sure to check out his stuff as well as his kickass band Fairgale

Song: “Cover Me Up” by Jason Isbell

Ps. If you don’t know what Malbec is, you need to drink more wine ;)


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!



“Well that was pretty darn cool. Thank you CCMA and ole for having me. It was a real treat to sing songs and tell stories with Damhnait Doyle, Steven Lee Olsen, Shylo Sharity, and Chad Brownlee.”

CCMA 2017

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. It was so exciting to cheer on my friends and perform for audiences filled with family, unbelievable artists, insanely talented musicians, and an industry that has welcomed me with open arms. Thank you CCMA and thank you to everyone who voted during the Spotlight Contest to give me this amazing opportunity. It's one I won't forget. See you all next year!
