In the final days of our last Momentom Collective Artist Residency in Nicaragua, I sat down with Tony Tobias to recap the season: 4 International Residencies and 2 Festival Theme Camps and Mainstage Performances across 4 countries, over 200 Residents with over 1000 workshops held...Definitely a season for the books!
I have SO MUCH LOVE to all the people, artists, teachers and healers that continue to get called to our project and community, for everyone's continuous support in this cocreation and support in each other's pe...
It feels SO good to be back creating and recording music! My two song release The Maderas EP is out now with the tracks Polaris (think Bibio meets Shakey Graves on a beach) and Meet My Maker ft Felisha Ariana (a world beat hand pan medicine song) is now streaming on Youtube and Soundcloud 🙌❤️
The music was recorded during our Momentom Collective Artist Residency in Maderas, Nicaragua. Big thank you to Joe DeFaria aka DJ and Production wizard J Pool and to Aria Felisha for coming in and singing and improvising so bea...
Malaysia: the 31st country I’ve had the privilege to travel in, has been a challenging one.

What a wild week, just getting back from Shambhala Festival (just named the #1 electronic music festival in North America) where our Momentom team brought acro, meditation and yoga to balance out the forest shenanigans (more on that below).
Shambhala is like Canada's Burning Man...but JUST the party. With 6 main stages - which each could be their own stand alone festival - Shambs is a wild beast of the global DJ scene with over 20,000 people flooding onto a private farm amongst the mountains of beautiful British Colombia....
When I was staying in San Juan, Nicaragua in April with my good friend Danny Elder (AKA Rumpus) and I heard that he was filming his first music video in Saskatoon in early June with Neon Steve, costume direction by Irys (founder of Solar Opposites) and directed by Nathan Thoen (lead singer of Bombargo), I had already booked my early flights home before he asked me to be in it.
Well, the day is finally here and it is OUT!
And what a crazy little music video it turned out to be!
Your intuition feels the depth and dives in headfirst.

I teamed up with Tony Tobias to get a snapshot a...
