“Body” is the new single off my upcoming EP Then We Fall.

Then We Fall is the closest I’ve come in the journey of figuring myself out, and the culmination of years

of writing, busking, and recording. My goal has always been to be as deeply honest as possible in my

music — to take what I create from my most personal feelings, written in the loneliest hours, and make it

available for anybody to listen to. It sounds scary, and I suppose it is, but when you really feel that what

you’ve made is true to yourself, it’s comforting to know that whoever hears it will understand who you

are. All I’ve ever wanted was for my songs to connect with as many people as possible, and hopefully be

there for them in the moments when music is the only answer.

I started writing songs at age 9 and that’s all I’ve wanted to do since. I grew up performing countless

shows with my brother, sister, and father in our family band, busking on the streets of western Canada all

through my teenage years. I logged my 10,000 hours as a musician and discovered the joy of winning

over an audience with my voice and acoustic guitar on the street. After years of building that foundation, I

got excited to explore a different kind of musical palette around my songs and break away from the

acoustic leanings that I’d grown comfortable with. So when I turned 20 last year, I decided that the next

chapter of my songwriting should be elevated by modern production and influenced by the pop music I

love, while still staying true to my singer-songwriter roots.

Then We Fall tells the story of falling into love, growing apart, and ultimately starting the cycle all over again.

The music was recorded with the amazing producer Hugh Mackie inside of a box truck that was converted

into a recording studio (which is exactly as cool as it sounds). Hugh and I spent countless hours in the truck

discovering how these songs were meant to sound within our new musical landscape. Our main focus was

making sure that nothing got in the way of the emotional message of the songs, so we tried to keep the

arrangements as sparse as possible. We wanted them to breathe with space and simplicity.

Each song on this EP takes me back to exactly where I was when it was written and exactly how I felt at

that time – whether overjoyed or heartbroken. I hope that you can hear yourself in these songs, and that

they reflect your own life back as you listen. If they can make their way into your memories some day, I’ll

feel like I did my job.
