Long Songs and a Loose Summer January 31, 2019

A number of years ago I composed and recorded some music to accompany a summer fashion show. The name of the show was Loose Summer as it featured loose, flowy, light summer clothes, but it was also meant as a reference to the idea of summer in Newfoundland, which is loose at best.

I wrote and recorded this in the basement of my Mother-in-law’s house over the course of a week. It’s a dug out basement, with French doors, lots of sunlight, and a nice hard concrete floor. Since I was travelling I had my Yamaha electric classical instead of... (more)


What Molt's been up to October 31, 2018

Molt has been hard at work completing the writing for our second album: Deep.

We’re planning a three song free fall from the surface of the ocean to the abyssal depths. You can get a taste of what’s to come on Instagram. where we’ve been posting a riff from the new album every weekday in October, or you can watch all the riffs in a row in this compilation on Youtube.


Whimseys EP September 15, 2018

Each song was recorded off the floor in my jam space and are as you would hear me perform live, just me and my guitar. I feel that it is appropriately titled Whimseys.

CWHL May 11, 2015

Here’s me with the Clarkson Cup!

I thought I’d take a little timeout from the playoffs to talk a bit about my other favourite hockey league, the CWHL. I visited the City of Markham in March to see the CWHL Clarkson Cup tournament. That’s Clarkson as in Adrienne Clarkson, as like all sporting cups worth their salt in Canada, this one is named for and was first presented by a Governor General. In it’s 8th year, the Canadian Women’s Hockey League is still quite small, with 5 teams comprised of the world’s best female hockey players.... (more)
