Cheap Canadian Whiskey

I was biking with my dad and saw a bottle by the side of the road - I remarked that it was half full, and my dad said that it was just "cheap canadian whiskey" The phrase stuck with me and I wrote a song around it about a friend that was doing some crazy stuff.

Titanic

A friend of mine was making some pretty bad choices - this is a song about watching it happen and knowing that the ending was inevitable.

Sneaky

Sat down with Maddy Rodriquez and Johnny Simmens and we wrote this on a fall afternoon. The lyrics are pretty self explantory smile

Mindless Zombies

In my 14 yr old brain - this is a political song - ha ha. I had fun writing this song. It not really produced at all - just played around on Logic Pro a bit after I did it on keys.

Anyway

I wrote this song with Rosanne Baker-Thornley and North Easton. We sat in a room with a nice piano and guitar and banged it out.

Save Yourself

Tyler Simmons and I sat down with Murray Daigle and Tyler and I came up with the idea for this conversational narrative song. Its really about a boy who just cant see the light and let go of his girl - despite the writing being on the wall smile

Free as a Bird

I wrote this track in a different setting for me. I sat down for about 4 hours with Bobby John and Murray Daigle in Toronto ON, and started it from scratch. As a young writer they asked me what I wanted to write about and this is the result.

I wanted to explore 5th and 7th chords so this is what I came up with. In this case I wrote the music first and then came with the lyrics.
