On the record
This is my first winter in a while. After living on the equator for so long, you forget what makes cold seasons so special: the light changes, the nights grow longer, things become still and then it starts snowing..
I hadn’t seen snow in a while, either. Or leaves falling.
These are some of the landscapes that you will find here. Places play a major part in the way I see music, and this new EP is a collection of sketches about this new life in Toronto. For a big city, it sure is quiet and contemplative.
It really feels like home now.
This is a collection of songs recorded at home, at night, on the brink of winter. There’s a railroad track right across the street.
I hadn’t seen trains in a while, now that I think about it.
New beginnings. New horizons. New soundscapes.
I hope you will enjoy them. They are for you.
