Hello all, long time no post! It's really hard to believe that another Summer has come and gone. This one in particular really flew by! I've been very busy playing another amazing tour with the one and only Shawn Mendes, this time covering ground in Canada and most of the US. This was one of the longest runs I've been a part of, and definitely makes me appreciate being home for a couple of weeks! 

I took part in a few other landmark performances with Shawn this Summer, including the MTV Video Music Awards, and MTV Unplugged. Shawn and the band put a lot of hard work into arranging some of his most popular songs for a stripped down, intimate acoustic set. The performance is set to air September 8th, 2017, so be sure to tune in!


This massive year of touring continues on in just a few short weeks, including headlining shows in Mexico, New Zealand, Australia, and a lot more. Cant wait!!

Just finished an awesome run of the U.S. and Canada with Shawn Mendes! This was a great leg of the tour packed with shows, going all over the U.S. and ending at the Air Canada Centre in Toronto. Playing the ACC was really a dream come true! I've been going to Leafs and Raptors games there since I was a kid, and have seen some of my favourite bands on that stage.

Speaking of amazing venues, Shawn kicked off the Illuminate World Tour on Sep 10th at Madison Square Garden in New York! MSG is one of the most famous, storied stages in the world, and it was completely surreal and amazing to become a small part of that history. Really looking forward to the upcoming dates through the rest of 2016 and next year!



Just returned home from an amazing month-long tour of Europe with Shawn Mendes!! Congrats to Shawn on selling out every single venue on the tour. We played some incredible venues, and took in the sights of some of Europe's most beautiful cities - London, Paris, Milan, Barcelona, Copenhagen, Stockholm, and more! I couldn't be more proud of being a part of this crew. Can't wait to take on North America this summer!


HAPPY 2016!!

Hello! And thanks for checking out my brand new website. I'm very excited to have a space to share my latest news, photos and videos with you all.

I can't believe the new year is here. 2015 was an incredible time for me! I took on a lot of work and a had a lot of amazing and enlightening musical experiences.

For starters, 2015 brought me an amazing gig in the form of the Shawn Mendes band. Shawn is an exceptionally bright star in the Canadian music scene, and I feel incredibly lucky to be a part of his live/touring band. We played some fantastic shows in the latter half of 2015, including the MuchMusic Video Awards, the Late, Late Show with James Corden, a performance at the People's Choice Awards, Madison Square Garden, and more... whew!  

Secondly, I've been hard at work in the studio with my indie rock project Flatrock, recording our debut album The Hill, it's been a long, hard ride, but I wouldn't trade the experience for the world. Look for the release in Summer 2016!

This is shaping up to be a great year for me full of touring, recording, and continuing to grow and mature as a musician. Here's to a great new year for all of you as well!!
