“Traditional yet innovative”, says Irish Music Magazine. The 2022 East Coast Music Award nominee draws on his Cape Breton fiddle roots and features sounds from across genres and lands. Latin influences with congas, classical and jazz elements, and urban hip hop groove marry original music with old country tradition. His arrangements have stimulating new chords to compliment the fresh fiddle phrases, presenting that classic Cape Breton sound in a way that might be, according to Irish tradition bearer Martin Hayes, “continually growing”.
