Live on BRBR

When I was getting ready for the European tour in November, I was pretty stressed with things to do, but when the TFO television show BRBR reached out about participating in an interview and some live performances, I couldn’t help but say yes! Naturally, everything would have to be done in French. Everyone already assumes that I’m francophone because of my first name, so my first thoughts were “great, now EVERYone will assume I’m francophone.” Not that that’s a bad thing! But there are only so many times that I want to get asked “parlez vous francais?” after introducing myself. Fun fact: I’ve even had people say that they heard a French accent when I sing!

The crew showed up on Thanksgiving weekend to film two songs in my living room, and they were incredibly professional and fun! Above is a live version of my song “Blue”, while below is the full episode, cued to a performance of my newest song “An Ode To This City.” Enjoy!

If you want to hear my speak poorly in French and give shoutouts to some TBay bands and venues, check out this quick little interview:

“Hope” acoustic feat. Shannon Lepere

After getting married in June, and buying a house not even two weeks before, both Shannon and I had our hands full. But we managed to take some time to sit down and film a quick video of us singing one of my songs, “Hope” while relaxing on our couch as husband and wife. Our good friend Curtis Jensen of Apple Wagon Films was there to capture the magic, and after I spent some time editing it, we wanted to share it with you all. Big thanks to The Walleye for premiering the video.

Shannon hasn’t sung in bands for YEARS, but I’m very happy that I convinced her to join me! Maybe we’ll do this sort of thing more often?
