What is your favorite place in your city?
Montreal is filled so many amazing places I can’t pick just one but the old port is brilliant in the summer time to take in all the old historic architecture. But if I was to pick one place which is my happy place in Montreal is Big in Japan Bar. This little gem is probably the coolest place in montreal hands down. When you walk in there you feel like you are in a different world all together with the design and minimal decor.
Tell us a little behind the scene story about your featuring with Rychard..
Rychard aka Richie G is a young rising talent in Montreal amongst many others in montreal. This record was done quite some time ago. But when rich brought forth the idea I really fell in love with it. And we just took it the next level. And I’m really happy that it is part of this package as it fits perfectly with the rest of the talent !!!
Favorite city you’ve visited?
Hard Hard hard.. But I would have to say Barcelona or Berlin each unique in there own ways but absolutely brilliant cities which I love and adore. And I’m really excited for the move to barcelona this summer..
What’s your typical ‘In The City”s food on tour?
On tour what ever the host or promoter suggests. You can never go wrong with IZAKAYA probably one of my favourite things out there. Along with plenty of Cold Sake..
