SOCAN Magazine Feature! 

It's been a wild ride since the release of the Loud Roar Productions/CBC Docs film, Finding Fukue that followed my search for my significant childhood friend Fukue from my year in Japan in elementary school.  An unbelievable and unprecedented 2,600,000+ views, thousands upon thousands of comments and shared experiences from viewers, and incredibly unexpectedly, a whole bunch of new interest in my original music!  

I am very proud to be featured for the first time in SOCAN Magazine (which went live today!), where I spoke with C.V. Grier about writing the film score for the documentary, and talked songwriting tips! It's pretty cool. :) Click the image for the full article!

Also, for those of you not in Canada who haven't seen it yet, Finding Fukue was released today by RealStories Documentaries!

More Insights Into Finding Fukue 

One of most amazing things about the existence of this documentary, aside from the obvious goal of finding out what happened to Fukue, is that people are getting inspired to reach out to their meaningful friends from the past.  Really, really amazing.  Still in shock over how much interest there has been about this and am very thankful for your well wishes and and loving vibes. :)

Here's another video explaining some more stuff about the film and beyond. And by the way, the song that plays in the 'Finding Fukue' credits is now mixed, almost mastered and will be released in the next week or two!  It sounds so great - amazing mix by my friend Ryan Granville-Martin (who also played drums on it).  K, enjoy:
