Where I Come From

Last week Daniel Chen posted this beautiful video of Vancouver caught in time-lapse photography. I am lucky enough to have my new track “Our Last Song” as the soundtrack to this stunning video.

When the video came out I was reminded of how gorgeous the city I’ve called home for the last 10 years is. This last weekend I returned to the Shuswap and visited some of my old haunts including my home town, Salmon Arm and was overcome with how beautiful it is in the summer and how lucky I’ve been to have lived in such glorious environments. Excuse my sappiness, but I had to proclaim it.

I also find myself wondering if that’s just how it is for most people and their home town. Is the feeling that there is no place like home a universal sensation? Or have I really had the luxury of living in the most beautiful place in the world my whole life?



Amber Ortolano – Surreal Photographer

Since I’ve been asked a lot about where the picture on the cover of “If Baby Could Walk” came from, I figured I should introduce you to the two amazing artists who put it together.

In the early stages of meeting up with Eli Horn, the artist I’d hired to design the cover art, he brought a hefty selection of photos and paintings that he told me to merely respond to. If I liked it, if I didn’t, what I liked about it etc. As I was going through the samples one particular photo caught me off guard and spoke volumes to me. There was something about the dreamlike figure that made the photo seem as if someone had managed to take the picture of a ghost in the mid 19th Century. I wasn’t quite sure what I was looking for up until this moment, but when I saw the photo I felt as if this was what I’d been searching for all along.

Luckily for me, Eli had been in contact with Amber before and she was willing to let us commission her for her photography.

Amber’s work is simply astonishing. The images she manages to create with a camera are some of the best things I’ve ever seen. I highly recommend you check out more of Amber Ortolano’s work at either her blog or her flickr. The girl is a phenom and definitely an artist to watch.
