It’s been a minute since we’ve heard from Toronto indie-rocker boy wonder. Back in 2019, the singer-songwriter dropped an incredible EP on the masses, Smile Momma. Good news: he’s back with a brand new track and upcoming album.

On the new song: “First single from 10 song video album, each with a person I’ve met in the city. This is Abbey. He’s a jazz bass player who was inspired by Mr. Natural on this summer morning. Look out for those slick shoes dance moves folks.

Listen to the first single White Shoe Dance in the embed below. The new record, Kinda Blue Too, will drop sometime in the coming months. Stay tuned.
