Its what holds his self-released fourth album Cold Outside togetherthat, and his compositional prowess. The dude knows how to string some sentences into a cohesive whole, make em rhyme, and have em come out profound. To hear him sing his 11 originals while playing guitar and leading his keyboards/bass/drums band is to feel what hes feeling.

Join us in Victoria for the launch of Room magazine's fortieth anniversary anthology, "Making Room: Forty Years of Room Magazine." Making Room: Forty Years of Room Magazine celebrates the history and evolution of Canadian literature and feminism with some of the most exciting and thought-provoking fiction, poetry, and essays the magazine has published since it was founded in 1975 as Room of One’s Own. In one story, a group of sexual assault survivors meet weekly and come up with a unique way to help police capture their assailant, while in another a dinner party turns to witty talk of racism, sexism, pornography, and time travel.
