Farm Crime Soundtrack - FemBots Reunion

After an eight year hiatus Brian Poirier and I revived our band (FemBots) to write and record the soundtrack for the CBC documentary series Farm Crime. After such a long break neither of us were sure if or how things were going to work. It was a little awkward for about three minutes and then we fell right back into things as if we'd never stopped.
We met for writing and recording sessions once a week (usually Thursdays) for about four months and were given the freedom to do whatever we'd like. Everything was recorded on the trusty old Tascam 488 eight track cassette machine and then transferred to the computer for editing and mixing. It was hands down the best, easiest and most fun soundtrack gig I've ever had. I wish they could all be so good.
We wrote a lot of music and have decided to keep going with our weekly sessions. I'm sure there's an album or two (or three or four) in there somewhere. Stay tuned for details as they unfold.

I’ve been doing more and more live comedy recording this year. Much of that work has sprung from my long running association with Vish Khanna’s Long Night talk show. Vish puts on a monthly live talk show as part of Toronto’s Long Winter festival. I’ve been recording it for his Kreative Kontrol podcast for the last four or five years now. The shows range from one on one interviews and live performances to lengthy panel discussions on topics of the day. It’s always a good time

My work with Vish has lead to down the rabbit hole of live comedy recording. It’s a field of recording that never crossed my mind but I have to say that I’m glad I stumbled into it. It’s been a really fun and rewarding trip.

In the last year I’ve made records for -

Sara Hennessey (They Know Too Much)

The Williamson Playboys (Still Alive For The Holidays)

Flo & Joan (Kindness of Stranglers and Victory Flaps),

Andrew Johnston (Sips Tea).
