Open Road

Hey guys! 

So as you have probably seen, I have released my first single, 'Open Road'. I am so incredibly happy and thankful to be receiving the response that I have. 

I'd like to share with you a little bit about how this song came to fruition. 

Open Road is a song that I wrote in a small cabin in Tofino, BC. I took a trip to the island from my hometown of Thunder Bay, Ontario to get a break from the daily grind and do some surfing. With a guitar, a surf board, and a tiny rental car that got me around those winding roads in the middle of January, I came out of the trip with the majority of my new album written. I met up with my friend Sam, and with all of the excitement towards new music, we planned a time for me to come back to the island and record. 

Once we were in the studio, Sam and I were able to play around with some really fun gear (Infinity Studios, Victoria). Open Road was one of those - one take, and it all just worked out - kind of songs. After our initial jam out, we just plugged into this broken space echo that was in the studio, and passed the guitar back and forth for a few takes. Some of the sounds were spooky, some were just straight up weird, but in the final mix the guitar tracks all came together to form a dreamy soundscape behind the song. I am so happy to be showcasing my new love for guitar playing, and to embellish with piano, an instrument I have been training on since I was four. 

All in all, Open Road is a great introduction to the music I will be sharing with the world in the near future. This just brushes on my influences from heavy hitters like Kurt Vile, Courtney Barnett, and The War on Drugs. Believe it or not, my folk influences like Gillian Welch and americana influences like Brandi Carlile had a whole lot to do with the writing of this song.

I hope you enjoy!
