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!
