Early musical influences include Rodgers + Hammerstein musicals, 70s rock, indie pop, grunge and rocknroll. In 1999 I was part of the Toronto band swimming and later played with a variety of musicians at Bloor + Ossington where Bring Rebel recorded songs. During the Garage Theatre years I was part of noise bands and eventually formed Burning Iceberg with Wes Rickert. We played the Bovine, Garrison and other venues before moving into spoken word performance. In 2021 I am writing and recording songs again with Wave Up and Bring Rebel Back, with a focus on turning my play Swimming In Roses into a rocknroll Broadway musical.
