    What’s up yall!

    It’s been a busy November as I have been on the road doing a lot of shows… and since I had a chance to connect with so many new and old fans I thought it would be a perfect time to release a couple of new videos.

    DOWN HOME is from my album of the same name… we shot it this summer in Nova Scotia

    I STAND UP is a video we shot this month at Oakdale Park school in Toronto…

    Posted this a few years ago but had to repost it today…

    Remembrance Day hits home when you have a family member that has made the sacrifice of fighting for his/her country. For me, it was my grandfather. Even though he passed several years ago, I often think about him – especially every November 11th.A few years ago I wrote a song about him… The song is called the “The Tin Man” and is produced by good friend and musical collaborator DJ Speed. The first thing I noticed when playing the instrumental was the sample “What would I do… if I could feel?” It’s from the Tinman in The Wizard of Oz. For me, it made me think, what would I do if I was in his position and left home to fight for my country.My grandfathers story alone is memorable. He was shot twice in one battle and left for dead in a pile of bodies. Another soldier found him and saved his life.Remembrance Day isn’t only about looking to the past… Last month, my cousin went to Afghanistan so he’s in my prayers for a safe return home.Here is a link to the song and video:

    A couple of years ago CBC aired a piece on the song…

    Last Word: The Tin Man

    Earlier this week we talked about how hip-hop has crossed the racial divide. Well, today, on Remembrance Day, we’re going to show you how it might also cross a generational oneToronto rap artist Duane Gibson , or “D.O.”—his emcee name—-wrote a song honouring his grandfather, Larry Gibson. He was a black Nova Scotian who fought in the second World War with the Cape Breton Highlanders. Larry Gibson was shot twice in one battle and left for dead in a pile of bodies. Another soldier found him and saved his life. So to commemorate his grandfather’s contribution to the war, D.O. wrote a song called, “The Tin Man” and we played this song to end our show this week.

    One of my favorite things about my show this year is that I perform I STAND UP at the end. One of the schools that I went to had been practicing up, so it was cool when I started performing and the audience knew all of the words!

    It was live…

    I had the pleasure of connecting with the legendary Fred Penner on this video. It’s a remix of my original “I Stand Up” song which features a strong anti-bullying message.
