Whats Been Happening...........

20 Feb. 2014

Been awhile since I've posted here so thought I would let ya'll know what I've been up to. Been working on a few different music projects lately. 1 being my side project Operation MD with Todd Morse. We are in the middle of recording a new single called "Shake Your Cage" which we hope to have out by the summer. It will be a World Wide release but more details will come on that song and its release when its done.  

I am also producing a song right now for Toronto band Bellwoods. The song is called "Stranger To Love". That song is pretty much done and is turning out really awesome. I will post it on here when its done and released by them.

Another thing I'm really excited about coming up is producing an EP and then eventually a full length album for Toronto Folk Rock 'N' Roll band Sun K.  Been working with them for almost a year now and it finally looks like we're gonna hit the studio in the next 4-6 weeks. Such great songs and its gonna be a pretty amazing album. I will update more on that as we start the album.

At the end of March I'll also be heading out to Winnipeg for a few days during Canadian Juno week to DJ an event on March 26th with Ian from Billy Talent.  The next night on the 27th Ian and I are gonna play a few songs with Jim Cuddy of Blue Rodeo for part of a charity event put on by Make Music Matter to raise money for women of Panzi Hospital in the Democratic Republic Of Congo. Gonna be a fun night and a great cause. If you are from Winnipeg and want to go tickets are on sale here

Thats the latest.
