The band is imaginary, but the music is real — I am just making it alone. I write the songs and lyrics, sing, play all the instruments separately, and record and mix the songs in my bedroom/studio. Occasionally I get some help from one friend or another for a backing vocal or instrument part.
When I was six years, old my parents bought a violin from the local buy-sell-and-trade, and took me to a violin teacher. I received lessons from her for just over a year, and that was pretty much it for a long time. It wasn’t until the age of 15 that I finally decided to try music again.
I’ve been writing and recording roughly one song around every three months ever since. My songs eventually matured, and in 2007, I took the ones I felt matched, and put them in my debut CD, Nocturnal Fables and Illusions.
After the release of Nocturnal Fables and Illusions, I moved to a small island off the Georgia Straight in British Colombia. While there, I lived in a recording studio. I later moved to Vancouver and recorded the last few parts of the second full-length release, Trust LP.
From the release of Trust LP in 2011 on until 2017, I wrote and recorded new material. Alex Badger added some lovely harmonies to a few songs, and Bernd Knoll added a nice bassline or two. In spring 2017 I moved to Toronto where the production was finalized for the third full-length album, The Apartment.
