REGAL Music Video “Orbit”

You may not know that along with my project “Folk Road Show” that leaves on tour of Canada next week, I also play in an ambient electro rock group called REGAL. A couple months ago a young film maker from Victoria contacted me with interest in collaborating on a music video together. I told him that as much as I loved making music videos and art in general I just didn’t have the funding at the moment to justify investing in a music video. When I checked my emails later that day, however, I noticed that Telus Storyhive was doing a grant program that would support small town BC and Alberta projects. The young film maker, Mike Morash, was from Victoria and made us eligible to apply for the program.

Fast forward to this week and I can present to you REGAL’s first official music video for our track “Orbit”. I hope you enjoy,

Dom

FOLK ROAD SHOW ALBUM + CANADIAN SUMMER TOUR

For the last couple years I’ve made trips to Europe in the fall to tour with an international collective of songwriters that came together by accident in late 2014. I’m very excited to announce that we’ll releasing an album as the Folk Road Show (self titled) on Texas label Classic Waxxx on Aug 23rd of this year. To support the release we’ll be hitting the road across Canada this summer starting in Oliver on July 28th and ending in Ontario in early September.

See the full list of tour dates on our official tour poster below. Hope to see you at a show!

Voice of the Summerfestival Official Anthem

On the rare occasion, I lend my voice to electronic and EDM tracks via the Milk Music composer/top liner Mike James. I’m charmed that one of the songs that I sang on for him has been chosen as the Official Anthem of Summerfestival 2016 in Antwerp, Belgium.

Here’s a clip of the festival and the Alvar & Millas tune “Hello Hello”.

“Granville Bridge” New Music Video

The summer before last I had booked 4 days to shoot a music video my good friend and  WCMA Award winning director Mike Southworth (he also directed “haunted by love”, “our last song” and “I miss the 80s”) . As 4 days was a bit more than we needed for my “I Miss the 80s”  video, we decided to squeeze another shoot in on the last day. Running on close to empty and little to no script, with the help of our costume designer Alannah Turner, we cast Vancouver performer couple Siona Gareau Brennan and Alex Strong to star and let the Vancouver summer scenery speak for itself.

What we ended up with was a story of a new couple slowly falling for each other as they frolic through Vancouver at it’s most picturesque. The video could be a promo for Vancouver tourism or  (as Siona and Alex have since become engaged to be married!) a pretty darn good engagement video.

Granville Bridge Music Video

The video was released over the weekend and has since been added to Modo Car Coop’s 8k Playlist and also been chosen as the upcoming feature song at Quesada Burrito’s and Taco’s “Joy of Song” campaign .

I’ve also recently booked a couple shows in Van. So the next opportunities to see me play live are:

Monday Feb 8th at the Yale Songwriter Night -Curated by Lydia Hol, Music Heals Fundraiser

Friday March 11th at the Fox Cabaret opening for Amelia Curran (Van Folk Fest)
