When I needed a break from those guys, I hung out with Canadian singer and songwriter Alexander Mckenzie and the two of us formed this folk duo The Almosts. I got into this Damien Rice mode at University, and I began writing a lot of my own stuff and doing solo shows in Holland, Germany, Brussels and England, and I put out a debut album, For the Love of Sound, as an independent artist in 2008. Later that year I hooked up with Roger Shah, a German DJ and producer, and the two of us began playing around with remixing some of the songs from my album. We recorded the single Don’t Wake Me Up with my vocals and guitar riffs and it became an instant club-smash. We followed up with the single Breaking Waves and the instrumentals Acapulco Waves and Summer Escape.
Our latest collaboration, Dance With Me, was released in May 2011 and is now in a remix contest. Now I live in Brooklyn, in Clinton Hill, which is, by the way, bar none, the coolest neighborhood imaginable, but hey don’t go telling everybody now–that’s our secret. I don’t live large, but I do live well, and I’m working super hard on music. Expect to hear something new from me in early 2012, and I hope to be coming to a stage near you then too.
