Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Horn Section

I had an opportunity recently to perform with Beatles tribute band The Fab Fourever for a special show featuring a 6-piece horn section. Fun music with fun costumes to boot!

2014 in Review

Continuing my annual tradition of waiting for a month before reviewing the previous year, here is my round-up 2014's personal and professional highlights:

  • Performing with Field Study. When I was in University, my first introduction to Vancouver's local indie music scene was Parlour Steps. I attended a number of their shows as I fell in love with the world of live music. I wanted to start my own band, and I made it a goal of mine to one day open for Parlour Steps. By the time No Island had started to come into its own, Parlour Steps had sadly disbanded, but I reached out to their former frontman Caleb Stull and was able to arrange a show with his new project Field Study at the same venue I had gone to see him play at many times before.
  • Opening for The Toasters and The Mad Caddies with Los Furios.
  • The coldest winter tour EVER with No Island. Lessons about the Coquihalla were reenforced.
  • Beginning my association with Lightbulb Vaporizer.
  • Beginning work on a new Los Furios album.
  • Another fantastic summer tour with No Island.
  • And the one thing that dominated 2014: Successfully crowd-funding and recording No Island's first full-length studio album "Better Days". This has been such a massive undertaking, and it's exciting to know that the finish line is now so close.
