Singer Songwriter • Montreal, Canada / Oxford, UK •
“I’m in the middle of an existential crisis, haha.”
Unraveled Artist Interview:
Q: Why did you make this song? What does it mean to you?
A: “Rant” was the result of a long writer’s block period, which ended up with me pouring a ton of frustrations I had at the time out on paper. It actually took me almost a year to finish that one. Most songs just represent a sense of relief for me when they’re complete. This one especially.
Q: What do you want listeners to understand from this creation?
A: Not a thing. I’ll be honored if listeners enjoy the music or appreciate the imagery painted by the lyrics and somehow relate to it, but I’m not trying to teach any lessons through it.
Q: How can people support you further?
A: By listening, or sharing my music if they like it. I don’t really promote my work much these days. Maybe it’s because I used to play in a band that was more serious about the whole thing, but now I find it refreshing to not worry about anything except making the music. I will release the solo album eventually, though; maybe at that point I’ll change my mind on the subject.
Q: What is your ultimate vision for your work?
A: It’s somewhat ever changing. I’m still trying to grasp where I’m going with this. Ultimately I still admire artists who make actual records, as opposed to collections of 10-12 songs, and that’s what I’ve always tried to do. I started working on my solo record in 2011 and the vision for the completed work has changed a few times. Until I have a clear idea of what I want it to be, I won’t be releasing the album.
Q: Do you consider your music to fall within a genre(s)?
A: It’s definitely within the singer-songwriter genre, closer to rock than to folk.
