Tough one! Somewhere between The Beatles and Weezer.

Favourite band now:

Currently would have to say Beach House, which has also been a major influence for the recent record.

Guilty Pleasure Song:

“Bird is the Word” but the Ramones version. Classic.

Live Show Ritual:

At least one drink before going on and a deep haul of fresh air before going on.

Favourite local artist:

Probably have to say Kaleidoscope Horse, I aim to make it to every show I can attend in town.

Sneaky Dees nachos, pasta from Terroni or a superfood salad from Fresh?

Sneaks Nachos every day!! Kings Crowns 110%!

Queen or College St?

Beacause I live in Parkdale, I would have to say Queen street, but that’s a hard one.

Trinity Bellwoods or Highpark, Riverdale or Kew Gardens?

High Park, so many trails.

EP or LP?

LP, I’m a big fan of the long-form medium.

Early bird or night owl?

Night owl for sure – been trying to do the early bird but gets eaten up by the late night surges.

Road or studio?

I actually have never been on the road really yet but would love to tour one day. For now I’ll have to say the studio as I know it best and it’s where you usually (hopefully) have the most control over your sound.

Swiss Chalet or Roti?

Roti, roti, and more roti!!
