Hey Our Basement,

Sometimes the best way to cope with loneliness is to focus all of your energy into something you really care about and blind yourself with a ‘for better or worse’ mentality.

“Drug Dealer” was born from a feeling of hopelessness in a small, shitty one-store-town where the only thriving business is the local drug trade. It’s about feeling stuck, full of envy and betrayal as you watch the only people you care about move on.

This song was produced at Catherine North Studios. That place is heaven for a writer like me. The big old church is vibey as hell and has hosted some of the best artists in Canada. I feel very privileged to call it a home away from home.

I can’t wait to share the finished product of this EP with you. I’ve been busy writing so in the infamous words of Scar from The Lion King… be prepared.
