Family and Community in 2016

Family and Community in 2016

Richie and I are coming up to a change in our lives – we’re leaving our community of peers in Lethbridge, AB after four remarkable years here. When we came here in 2012 neither of us really had any idea what to expect. We thought we’d be here for 9 months, the duration of Richie’s...
Princess Is Here.

Princess Is Here.

On Saturday February 27 2016, I performed at the Pretty Witty and Gay Cabaret in Lethbridge, Alberta, as Princess Edward. Pretty Witty and Gay is an annual festival put on each year by Theatre Outré, the queer company I am proud to be technical director for since coming to Lethbridge in 2012. The festival culminates...

A Quick Tip for Better Sleep

A Quick Tip for Better Sleep

I recently discovered a little app called F.lux. This handy piece of work will gradually reduce the amount of blue light emitted from your computer screen throughout the evening, and this is a really important thing. The light emitted from devices with screens (televisions, computers, phones, tablets etc) as well as from certain led and...
If You Want Rights, Believe In Them.

If You Want Rights, Believe In Them.

I am a sexist and a racist. This is true. I have had no choice in this. The status quo propagates sexism and racism where I live and was raised. Canada, North America, “The Western World”, although this is not the only place or time in history it’s been this way. There’s a lot of...

If you didn’t know, I use the moniker Chandelier for the electronic music I make. Myself and @WilcoxRichie just finished this new track up.
Be A Better Musician and Music Lover

Be A Better Musician and Music Lover

Whether you’re playing solo, in a duo, in a band or in an orchestra, music performance is a powerful event that centres on connection. It has the power to unite and transport people unlike any other art form. Music is one of the most important and beloved aspects of my own life, and it’s something I’ve...
Beard Oil Test Run: The Mod Cabin

Beard Oil Test Run: The Mod Cabin

My brother Chris sent Richie and I a box of tester vials of The Mod Cabin Beard Oil and a couple tins of their Beard Balm too. Chris is typically a very beardy fellow – not sure if he uses the stuff himself but I have to say the stuff is great! A light texture...
My Morning Ritual

My Morning Ritual

If you ask around or flip through some historical autobiographies, you’d find that a common practice of the doers, makers and thinkers of the world is a guarded morning ritual. Not guarded as in secret, but as protected from the disruptions and distractions of public life. The morning (or whenever you first wake up) is...
5 Things That Help Me Thrive With Depression

5 Things That Help Me Thrive With Depression

This is a very personal post for me. If you’re a close friend of mine or part of my family, you should know that you’ll likely find out some things about me in detail you find unpleasant. That being said, the only reason I can write this now is because I’m stronger, clearer, happier and...
Chandelier Remix for Christina Martin

Chandelier Remix for Christina Martin

In September I had the pleasure of working on a Chandelier Remix for Christina Martin. She’s a really wonderful artist who’s just released a new record called “It’ll Be Alright”. If you sign up for her free newsletter, she’ll give you four remixes of the single at the end of the campaign in November. Besides...
