From The Night.

September 19th, 2014

It’s always a great day when I spend time in the presence of super intelligent, very creative, always hilarious people like Torquil Campbell. I’ve worked the last 3 Stars albums, and I feel so strongly connected to this band, and the fantastic people both in and around the group. They drive forward with a seemingly unending supply of fresh ideas and inspiration, always staying topical on what is happening in the world of art, music, culture, politics. This new record, No One Is Lost the band’s seventh record, collectively scoops you up in an enveloping embrace of dance beats (infused from the dance club directly beneath the groups Montreal recording studio) and yet delivers the quintessential Stars elements of trademark dual vocals, from Torq and Amy Millan and lyrically, dark narratives that arrest you. No One is Lost? Everyone is.

Check out STARS on tour with Hey Rosetta! for November and across Canada in February 2015. No One Is Lost is out on Oct 14

Baptism

November 26th, 2013

The first track I was sent from Violent from We Are The City was Baptism (on my birthday this year no less) and I was asked if I’d consider working it. I responded: “I was born to work with this band.” A lot has changed in the time that has passed, but what I feel for this band and the people around Cayne, Andy and David has only grown. Watch out.

PXTK

October 31st, 2013

We Are The City are about to tour Canada with Shad. They just released a free live EP/video series from their website www.wearethecity.ca called PXTK – something definitely worth checking out, as is seeing the band live. They are to me one of the most exciting and engaging bands live, they are driven, creative, resourceful and lovely people to the core. I am very lucky to have this band work with me.

Here is King David, the first video released from PXTK watch for more to follow in the coming weeks.
