July 5, 2021 – New Release on Bandcamp: Threshold by PRS.
Between February and April of 2019, artists prOphecy sun, Ross Birdwise and Soressa Gardner met in an east Vancouver basement under the guise of making a series of live recordings. What emerged is a testament to their collective curiosity, passion and deep commitment to listening through realms inside and outside of their bodies. Threshold celebrates sonic transcendence, light and darker spaces; improvised melodic textures, ambient, free flowing, unpredictable rhythms and non linear patterns.

Friday April 30, 2021 – New Release from Hotham Sound Recordings: The Same River Twice (compilation of 50 artists). I am grateful to be one of the contributing artists along with many I admire. Available as of today, 2021 on Hotham Sound’s Bandcamp Page.
All proceeds go to the the US National Bailout Collective.
Credits and running order are provided with purchase (in the album artwork) and also available (free) when you listen right from the source: Hotham Sound The Same River Twice.
