The plan had been hatched; in the darkness of the winter we would meet in the warmth of the House of Miracles studio to record what would become my new record, Arcticalia. Our group of friends elaborated the songs into Tropicalia inspired indie folk rock. The songs are little protests of anxiety and beauty, mistrust and loyalty somehow capturing a mental escape from a long Canadian winter and the frustrations of adulthood.
The nine songs that became Arcticalia were hewn from the skilled hands of Marshall Bureau (drums), Justin Nace (guitar), JJ Ipsen (Keys), Tavo Diez De Bonilla (Bass), and Andy Magoffin (Horns, Guitar, Percussion), arranged with immediacy and recorded as a document of our time together.
