“I am eager to share my new single ‘Cruel’ with you.
You can listen to it on Soundcloud.
This song means a lot to me. It comes from a place of honestly trying to listen and hear other people’s experience of the world – particularly those whose voices are often silenced and shut down. I think those are the voices we need to be listening to and raising up right now.
The song premiered at Earmilk, and here is what they had to say about the track “‘Cruel’ keeps pushing you forward even when you’d rather sit back, and is a much needed message of unity especially in the current climate.“
“Cruel” was produced by Kindness (Robyn, Solange, Blood Orange) along with the rest of my debut album which is set for release later this year. The 10 songs on ‘CU Again’ are the culmination of many years of sonic exploration. Having grown up in Vancouver before moving to Montreal and then Toronto, spending time in rock bands and making lo-fi recordings on my own, before moving towards a 70s songwriter vibe infused with a more modern production style & sound.
On ‘Cruel’, I was lucky to have Damon Riddick (DāM-FunK) on drums, Keith Eaddy on bass and Blue May on guitar with those perfectly placed guitar licks. I love how the live drums and bass sit overtop of the samples and drum machine giving the track a unique rhythmic backdrop that keeps pushing you forwards.
Let me know if you have any questions.
Thanks for listening.”
