Scored a TV show "4 in the Morning on CBC"

Had a wonderful experience scoring the Network TV miniseries "4 in the Monring" On CBC this past summer with my writing partner Ben Fox. It was crazy and a great time. Shout out to all the great people we had a chance to work with. I'm happy to now say you can see all the episodes online at this URL.

Worked on the new Drake album, Views.

Excited that "Views" is finally out this weekend! I play on a good solid half dozen tracks and even contributed a little bit of writing. After personally repping the six as my adopted city for so long, it feels good to be a part of this one.

New website! New Record produced by Mike released Jan 23rd
