A musician/actor/voice announcer/writer based in Toronto, I'm presently in two musical outfits: Uncle Father, and Tough Stains. UF has been around since 2009 and we have one EP to our name, and many live shows played. But, after a few pre-pandemic recording sessions at Revolution Recording in Toronto, 22 tracks are being hatched with producer, Stephen Stepanic, and will be released throughout 2021. The latter band was recently formed with my 10 year old son, Kai. The Partridge Family, it ain't! Much grimier than that. UF resembles Deep Purple, STP and Ween. Tough Stains sounds like pre-teen Nine Inch Nails. All music can be heard on Spotify, Apple Music, and most other streaming services and stores.

This definitely has a late 70s/early 80s techno-pop vibe. And it's a bit...odd. Not that there's anything wrong with this. Classify this as "experimental pop" that will have niche appeal. What's the audience for this? Who do you hope to reach with your music? Or is it just a father-son bonding exercise? Whatever the case, it's all about experimenting, creating, growing, and trying new things. You won't hit it out of the park with each song, but you'll learn something new every time. Meanwhile, set everything free online and see where it goes. You never know, right?
Even as a major Paul McCartney fan, I cannot forgive Macca for this travesty. Any attempt to rewrite it is welcome. I'm definitely going to post this on my website (look for it Monday, December 21) and share it on all my social networks.
