What was your reaction to the news you’d be a part of Marvest and who was the first person you told?
I was really excited to be asked to be a part of Marvest. I immediately messaged my wife to let her know the great news!

Please describe your sound.
My sound is based in folk and rock, but the vocals are emotive, theatrical and powerful with lyrics as honest and hard hitting as possible.

How did you get started on your musical journey?
I started singing as a child in choirs and picked up the guitar in high school. I released my first EP in 2012 and have been touring Canada ever since.

What can music fans expect from your show? Will you be playing or releasing any new music?
People can expect an emotional and energetic performance. I will be playing new music from album due out October 15th.

What artists are you hoping to catch during this year’s Cityfolk and Marvest?
I’m excited to catch Father John Misty, Nathaniel Rateliff, Jack Johnson, Matt Mays and Heavy Medicine Band
