Free Halcyon EP download

Posted on by canonblue in news

Many many years ago, during a long cold winter, I recorded a few songs in my bedroom and released them as an EP called Halcyon. Click the cover image below to download:

The EP is free to you and yours. The download comes with artwork done by resident genius Ben Tousley of wilkerton fame (who also did the artwork for my first album Colonies) and was mastered by the wonderful Mads Brauer of efterklang. A full credit list, handwritten by Ben, is also available with the download. Happy Christmas….

No Longer Performing W Paper Route, Halfnoise

Posted on by canonblue in news

*Paper Route & Halfnoise will still be performing as scheduled.

Its always been a dream of mine to be able to go on tour with close friends and have the experience of a family together on the road. Thats exactly the idea that this tour with Paper Route and Halfnoise was built around and it was something I had been looking forward to for a long time.

The decision to bow out of these shows was something I wrestled with for many days and ultimately it came down to the fact that my body was not willing to go along with my heart. After two amazing back to back tours this year it seems that I have developed a severe back injury, the result being that it is physically impossible for me to sit or stand for any significant period of time. I was ambitiously hoping that it would go away in time for me to continue on, but it seems that the only way to recover is to rest and to begin physical therapy. And as always, there is the bigger picture of potentially sacrificing and delaying future tours and recordings if I don’t take care of this now.

Thank you to everyone for your grace and understanding. If its any consolation I can guarantee that Paper Route and Halfnoise will be more than worth the price of admission. I hope to see you all soon.

Much love,
