I’m so excited to finally release my first original song that I’ve been working on for a few years now!
You can hear it below and download it on iTunes right now!


As I mentioned in my last blog about the process of creation, this “sassy plea to unfaithful lovers” was written by Darryl Kromm of Canadian hit 80’s synth pop band Strange Advance.
Guitar was performed by my long time friend  and amazing guitarist, Erol Sora.

With the aim of creating the perfect 80’s inspired pop song, I looked to my producer Jarome to create something that would fulfill a long time goal of an original song that would combine the inspiration of my youth. Rather than try to create a copy of the great 80’s pop songs, Jarome looked to colleague and friend Darryl Kromm who already wrote some of Canada’s best loved and known 80’s pop songs.

Reworking Darryl’s upbeat yet dramatic account of the abandoned lover, Jarome created a modern ‘future disco’ musical arrangement to the 80’s inspired lyrics to create a cool fusion of two musical worlds.

Written and recorded in Vancouver, Cool & Careless was produced in Vancouver and Beijing, and mixed in Jarome Matthew’s new Beijing studio.

It’s already on iTunes, and it will also be available on your favourite online music store very soon.

I look forward to hearing what you think!

Well, it’s time to let everyone have a listen to my new song – it’s a re-worked version of 80’s classic Human League’s ” ( Keep Feeling ) Fascination ” , featuring backup vocals by the amazingly talented Darryl Kromm ( Strange Advance ). My producer, Jarome Matthew did a great job with the music, keeping what was essential from the original, but also adding some really interesting sounds, giving new dimension to the song, and bringing it into the future. We had a lot of fun working on this track and I talk more about it here. I feel it represents my new direction well into the kind of music I have always wanted to make!

The song will be available soon for download on iTunes, amazon.com mp3, Rhapsody, Napster, eMusic and more – Just check my Music page for details.
