A fusion of world, folk and new age, built on a base of rhythm guitar and Cajon then layered with new age synths, exotic percussion instruments and topped with a 1950s style surf guitar, with lyrics that reflect on the big questions in life.



One thing I need to tell you, is why...birds fly, people die and babies cry
One thing I need you to let me know is when...the world began, will it end and will you ever hold my hand again

And why, I, I cant sleep oh 'till I know the answers to why

One minute I'm on a swing, smiling at trees
Next minute I am wondering if Toronto's, right for me
Why does a rooftop at 5am feel like home?
Why does it feel so strange being all alone?


I'm drifting, through this space, no direction, or way to go
How can I trust, I'm doing what's right with no one, telling me yes or no


Now I, I know the answers to why
I feel it, I found it, deep inside of me

Sometimes its oh so hard, but I trust you...voice inside
