Favourite musician growing up:

Kenny Chesney and Tim McGraw for country, Counting Crows for rock and Boyz II Men for pop/R&B.

Favourite musician now:

That’s a tough one! I tend to attach myself to songs as opposed to the artists. For Canadian country, I’d have to go with Dallas Smith by a mile. Top shelf every time!

Guilty pleasure song:

‘I Want It That Way’ by the Backstreet Boys or ‘Africa’ by Toto. But don’t tell anyone!

Live show ritual:

To avoid anxiety, I’m usually watching tv or playing video games till almost showtime!

Favourite local musician:

Bailey Zimmerman was making a lot of noise down here in Nashville, and I was really digging what he was doing. Still am, but he’s well on his way to blowing up now, so he’s not really ‘local’ anymore.

EP or LP?

EP. People have much shorter attention spans these days, so they don’t want to wait for a full-length album unless your name is Adele or Taylor Swift! Fans want ‘more music, more often’ and I’m happy to give it to them!

Early bird or night owl?

Night owl for sure!

Road or studio?

Honestly, either or. I get recharged creatively in both situations.

Any shows or albums coming up?

We’re getting ready to drop a brand-new song very soon!
