Months and months went into this album. We paid attention to every little detail. Recorded, re-recorded, fine-tuned, polished… and then our producer, Matthew Golden put his magic touches on it. Now we have something we are both immensely proud of.
Here it is. Take a listen. Share it. Enjoy. If you want to purchase it, you can do so through bandcamp.
You’ve now officially been SLAPPED!

I just read Xania’s entry on our Trike page. I would like to clarify a few things.
I have zero ill will towards that girl. I am not angry with her.
I have learned so much from her. She taught me how to be grateful. She had faith in Trike. She inspired me to push myself as an entertainer as I never have before. She was the perfect companion onstage: always gracious, funny and easygoing. She taught me not to take myself too seriously. She taught me to love more openly. She taught me how to be less selfish. She taught me so much and I feel nothing but gratitude for her. I think she is really quite an amazing human being.
I think there are some misunderstandings between us right now. I’m hoping to clear things up. Xania remains one of my favourite people on this planet. She is now working on a solo album and I wish her nothing but the best. I still hope we will share the stage again but that remains to be seen. Right now we both just need time to heal and grow and do our own thing.

This takes us to now. What is now? Now is alive… vibrant. I am still in Berlin, eleven songs-deep into my new solo album, “Beat The World Up”. I’m recording like crazy. Playing one or two shows every few weeks. I’m not making a lot of money, but I’m making a lot of creative headway. I’m challenging myself. I’m growing as an artist.
I have a Facebook page if you’re curious what I’m up to. As soon as I have some material that’s been well-produced, I will pop it up on Soundcloud so you can have a listen.
Meanwhile, happy trails and keep it real in da hood, mothertruckers. Love, peace and chicken grease.

Xania is in Canada but we are both still making music. We do plan on releasing our new album, but for now we are working on seperate projects.
This is my song “Utopia”. I played it live yesterday at my 3rd solo show in 5 years (the first was at Johnny Bliss’ Canada Party in Vienna, Austria two New Years Eves ago and the second was in Prince George last summer… my hometown).
I hope you enjoy it!
