From his bio:

He took a few years off of music while dedicating himself to teaching Music at Notre Dame High School. He rediscovered his love for songwriting in 2016/17, started elevating his writing, and began playing live shows again. His passion for songwriting reached new heights after 3 successful music trips to Nashville, Tennessee, where he got to meet with many diverse songwriters, artists, and publishers.

He currently writes mainly Country, Folk, and Pop music with many songwriters and artists all over North America. He is proud of the network of writers, musicians, and friends he has become a part of, and he has built up a respectable catalogue of songs over the years.

From their Bio:
An album takes a while to put together - this one was about 15 months in the making. Thanks to Dean Watson for seeing us through the majority of that. A true model of patience, relaxation while dealing with many cooks in the kitchen. Thanks to Jason Jaknunas for taking us through the mixdown process dirong COVID-19 quarantine - incredible work as always, even when most of the sessions were done over video conference.

There is not enough thanks to the musicians who performed on this record - thank you, thank you, thank you. Thanks to the music venues who let us workshop these tunes infront of an audience over the past year - the National Arts Center the Rainbow, the Black Sheep Inn, Queen St Fare, The Cove Inn, 3030 Dundas, the Record Center. Thanks to Chris Snow and Girls+ Rock Ottawa for helping us put out our second video.

The biggest thanks to our partners and families who put up with us working long hours to write, record and release this music. We can’t wait for the next one!

a Great convo with Nicholas Leno from A Company of Fools!!!!


This completely original Shakespearian mashup by Ottawa theatre powerhouses Nicholas Leno and Sarah Finn
blends six of the Bard’s classic scenes with comedic interludes that all explore what it means to be in love, the
different types of relationships where love can grow, and how love can overcome the hurdles of these socially distant
times. Three Actors will adopt six famous roles each as they bring life to the love stories of Romeo and Juliet, As
You Like It, Much Ado About Nothing, Hamlet, King Lear and A Midsummer Night’s Dream. Directed by
co-author Nicholas Leno, this snappy, endearing weaving of Shakespeare’s most memorable stories of the struggles
and triumphs of love will keep our hearts warm this fall.


Due to the COVID-19 limitations placed on live performances, the Fools have re-imagined our famous annual
Torchlight Shakespeare in the park tour. Love from Afar is a one-week, fully mounted tour that will visit senior living
facilities across Ottawa to perform our new Shakespearian mashup. Our production will be presented outside these
facilities, and residents will be able to tune in to our miked actors on their radios to listen along in perfect quality. And
as our first-ever leap onto the digital stage, the animated comic will allow for our wider audience to experience the
production in a completely unique way. With both static and animated scenes, complete with voiceover, this comic is
the perfect way to let everyone in on the action. A new approach, but the same quality Foolish fun Ottawa can count


This three-handed Shakespearian mashup is in six capable hands - Geoff McBride, Mitchel Rose and Maryse
Fernandes make up our Company for this deliciously bite-sized tour. Veteran and fan favourite Fool Geoff McBride
will be delighting Ottawa audiences once more - and, from the acclaimed and revered Ottawa theatre troupe
Aplombusrhombus, Mitchel Rose (former Fool of 2017’s A Midsummer Night’s Dream) and Maryse Fernandes will
be lending their talents to our first ever Window Tour.
With costume and mask design by aesthetic wiz Hannah Ferguson, set design by Franco Pang, and original score
provided by musical superstar Alli Harris, this production channels an incredible soundscape combined with some of
the most expressive actors in Ottawa to provide an utterly unique experience in these utterly unique times.

From their Bio:
Formed not too long ago, not too far from here, The Hornettes are a fire-breathing funky beast with a single purpose: heart racing, feet pacing, soul shaking, earth quaking dance floor bedlam. Sexual tension and heart-stopping stares ooze from the front-women, supported by the hottest horn section in town, and nature’s strongest form: the rock-solid rhythmic triangle of guitar, drums and bass.
