have you ever seen a day like this before the old tree roots uplifting from the soil the sky looks the same but things feel awful strange friday, march 13 will bring a change i'm a grown up man of almost 34 i've never seen a day like this before nor has my ma or my grandmama nor has my pa or my grandpapa friends and family on a video screen i can't tell if they know what i mean dishes in the sink and a bottle on the table and it's taking me more to keep centred and stable these weekends feel like they will never end is it quarter to two or quarter to ten? i lose my bearings when i look at the world it's a jigsaw puzzle missing pieces today feels normal but it's not what you think normal has a new meaning since the civilized brink weeks and months of solitude melted minutes stuck together like
i've never felt so close to home yet i've never felt so damn alone the only thing that could cure my blues is archtop strumming humming a tune i'm looking for a furry friend a companion i could comprehend the times are tough and i feel oh so rough where is my pandemic pup pandemic puppy will help me see when the world feels tough he just says [BARK] pandemic puppy all nice and fluffy pandemic puppy he's chasing squirrels he's chasing ducks he gives no f[BARK]



Suite Solitude is a collection of 3 solitude themed compositions that I wrote during my early experiences of the COVID-19 pandemic. They three songs were recorded by musicians remotely and mixed/mastered in Montreal.
The project involved 1) an EP, 2) a video EP, and 3) a livestream concert of three solitude-themed compositions that I began writing early in the pandemic. The music was born at a time when I was experiencing deep solitude from others, and was feeling a need to experience social connection.


Suite Solitude est une collection de 3 compositions sur le thème de la solitude que j'ai écrites au cours de mes premières expériences de la pandémie COVID-19. Ces trois chansons ont été enregistrées par des musiciens à distance et mixées/masterisées à Montréal.

L’idée derrière Suite Solitude est de ramener le “social” dans la musique. Le projet comprend 1) un EP, 2) un EP vidéo et 3) un concert en direct de trois compositions sur le thème de la solitude que j’ai commencé à écrire au début de la pandémie. Cette musique est née à une époque où je vivais une profonde solitude par rapport aux autres et où je ressentais le besoin d’établir des liens sociaux.
