It’s no secret that the halls of power connect the spheres of big finance and government. So much has been written about the central figures, scandals and aftermath of the post 2008 economic meltdown, but imagine what would happen if one of the 1% were forced to live penniless in every-town America. DNA Music and Bravo Fotografia release a new video that explores that question for “After The Occupation,” the musical brainchild of DNA Music co-owner David Miner.

Photographing local bands is always fun!  This local Sarnia band is Iron Shirt. Very fun to work with, and they have some great music!  Make sure to check it out here:


Jake Schiemz and the folks at The Front Door welcomed me and my songs and artwork into their establishment and I had a great time last night sharing it with friends. Jake’s philosophy is what I love about downtown, he sources everything can as local as he can. The friends who came out to dine loved the food, I was singing so I missed out. My artwork is always a fun break from music, I get to exercise a lot more recklessness than I would with record making. When making records I love to experiment and often do, but the engineering side is a lot like doing realism in art. I have to record instruments so they sound as natural as they possibly can. Then I can mess around later if I want. With my painting, I don’t worry about technique, composition or anything of the kind. I envy local painters who obviously put more effort in their work (and it shows). Despite always being into visual art and taking any course I could in school involving it, I never really had the acumen for it. Last night was everything I love about downtown: friends, art and music. Thank you to everyone who stopped in. I’d love to play there again for you.

Sometimes photography accidents can look pretty neat.

DNA Music and Bravo Fotografia have collaborated on an exciting tour of Adam Miner's recording studio. Part of the process was creating an inventive ambient track for the short film. I play the wine glasses, and keyboard.
