Shifting gears into a lot of private function work, weddings and other interesting events. THIS FRIDAY: Last singer/songwriter show of the season at The Riverside Grill.

Continuum. I love it when new artists sneak in and surprise you. You may have formed certain opinion about someone. You might have written them off because of some uber-hit you didn’t like. Or some dumb thing they said in the press. Or for whatever reason. Then all of a sudden you open up a …

Some of the most profound impacts of new media are the most subtle. In music, there has been tremendous focus on industry. And understandably so. When the infrastructure of a business is turned upside-down, there are major changes. But it’s no different than any other business, really. You deal with it, change, and move on. …

Coasting.

It seems harder and harder to find these moments; with rapid-fire technology pulling our attention everywhere except where it needs to be. The last couple of weeks have been awesome. The opportunity to play at some …

There’s a huge difference between pushing music out, and drawing people in. When you push music out, things are slightly off centre. Things may sound right, but there’s no power or dynamics.

Capturing love in a photograph is not an easy thing to do. This photo was taken at the Bell TIFF Lightbox in Toronto last December. I was hired by a man looking to do the ultimate proposal. Complete surprise. Candlelit walkway. Lone table overlooking the city. Needless to say, it worked incredibly well. Sue Morley …

The days are getting longer.

Not that I’m a huge fan of February in Canada, but this deepest point of winter always reminds me that we’ve just passed through the darkest point. It reminds me of this photo taken in December while sound-checking for a private function at the Bell TIFF Lightbox in Toronto. It’s always tough from a photographer’s …

Every once in a while you pull out an album that hits you like a ton of bricks. I recently pulled out Lenny Kravitz’s Mama Said from the archives. Something about that riff from track 2 just blows my mind. I’m working with a couple of younger guitarists right now, trying to find great references …
