Frédéric Hébert “l’Aube” album release

Excited to announce the release of new music from Frédéric Hébert! I really enjoy playing his music and I think you will enjoy listening to it. The album can be found here and you can also check out cool photos below taken by Marc-André Dupaul taken at the album release show at Le Zaricot in Ste-Hyacinthe, QC.

New release by the History of Gunpowder!

I had the immense pleasure of playing several saxophones and clarinet on the latest album by History of Gunpowder, and now you can have the immense pleasure of listening to it! Alex Morison wrote some fantastic material for this and I think the final product is something really special.

Stream it here or on your favourite streaming service!

christmas mixtape!

i had the great pleasure of recording some christmas music this year for this cool project featuring dozens of montreal musicians & friends! the oops kitchen contributed our rendition of a beautiful polish christmas carol ‘lulajże jezuniu’ on which i play guitar, and i’m also playing alto on ‘jingle bell funk’ by fox and the hound.

the album is full of surprises and is available for free download but we recommend taking the 5 or 10 bucks you would have spent on it and donating to a good charity.

stay tuned for more christmas and non-christmas surprises!

taylor donaldson octet recordings & photos!

this january i had the opportunity to record some new original music with the Taylor Donaldson Octet. it’s an absolute joy to play with these musicians and i think the recordings sound great!

Canção Comovente was written by Taylor, The Great Grasshopper Race and A Night With No Wind were written by me. engineering, mixing, and technical wizardry were performed by Padraig Buttner-Schnirer, who took all the photos as well.

stay tuned for audio & video from our concert in april!
