Excited to share my new project called TFW that I have been working on with my friend Jordan David in Ottawa you can get the track free here: https://riseashen.bandcamp.com/track/tfw-overtime
Ottawa, Canada based Silla & Rise combine Charlotte Qamaniq and Cynthia Pitsiulak's traditional Inuit throat-singing with Rise Ashen's futuristic dancefloor mixology. Featured dancer is Ottawa's Tangent. This year we had the honor of being nominated for a Juno Award for Best Indigenous Recording for our album Debut
Last fall, I teamed up with JFun for a series of events at Pure Kitchen on Elgin in Ottawa, here's a mix from the first installment.
Last summer I had a visit from my childhood music teacher, the amazing Montreal-based jazz flute, sax, guitar and percussion player Jeff "Wind In" May. It had been at least 25 years since we had jammed
For my newest Deepworld mix (Deep soulful house from the 4 corners of the globe) I enlisted my old friend Trevor Walker to tag with me :-)
While the amazing poet Brandon Wint lived in Ottawa I got to make this piece with him...
Lucila Al Mar and Rise Ashen have been in the studio working on some deep new songs...
Had so much fun making this song and video with the amazingly talented Tara Porter
