2011, I have been writing and performing music for various events in
Toronto. I began doing so after the organisers of the monthly Chiaroscuro Reading Series,
or ChiSeries, asked me to contribute a performance to their Christmas
show. I wrote a song about zombies. After that, things just
sort of went boom. I now write two new songs for every ChiSeries.
I have also performed at SFContario, Ad Astra, FilKONtario, the annual Klingon Assault Group feast, Anime North, and Constellation Awards, and the Boston-area convention ConCertino. I have two CDs out, Beowulf Pulled My Arm Off and Everybody Hates Elves. Both are currently available on Bandcamp and as physical CDs.
I won the 2013 Prix Aurora Award
in the category of "Fank Filk" and the 2015 award in the category
of "Fan Music." I was also nominated in the "Fan Music" category in
2014 (at which point I lost to Chris Hadfield, who recorded his song in space) and the "Best Fan Related Work" category in 2016 and 2017. In 2015, I was nominated for the Pegasus Awards in two categories, "Best Filk Song" (for "Being Watson") and "Best Writer/Composer." In 2016, I was also nominated in two categories, "Best Writer/Composer" and "Best Adapted Song" (again for "Being Watson").
Interested people can find links to many of my
songs below, along with the years in which the songs were produced.
Eventually, I hope to provide chord sheets and videos and/or
recordings of all the songs (quite a few of them do currently have recordings
and videos you can find via the links below, and all of them have
