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...

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....

It was so fun to put some psychedelic visuals to it with the help of our in-house Momentom Collective videographer Tony Tobias as we walked, danced and ripped a Tuk Tuk through San Marcos on Lake Atitlan, Guatemala!
“Living an Unconventional Life means being the blind man or woman wandering around in life eyes closed so that we can see clearly where we are going because we're navigating with our heart. Breaking normal, being our unapologetic weird selves.” -Jules Schroeder
