So long and thank you!

Hey everyone,

This notice is long overdue (a year or so), but if it’s not obvious, I am no longer posting on East Coast Noise. I haven’t in some time. Initially, I decided to take a break from the site, simply because I was feeling a little overworked at the time and couldn’t concentrate as much as I’d like on the site

Eventually, I realized the site was becoming a chore rather than something I enjoyed doing. I love writing about music, but when you spend 8 to 10 hours in front of a computer for your full-time gig, it’s difficult to get excited about doing it at home too. With my wife and I now expecting a child, the chances of me finding more time to dedicate to the site are slim.

So with all that said, thank you all for your support over the couple of years I did this thing. I enjoyed learning about many talented east coast bands, and I continue to be in awe of so many talented folk I’ve met and chatted with. I continue to write full-time in Moncton as a news reporter, and I’ve been contributing on occasion to Ken Kelley’s fabulous website The Musicnerd Chronicles. I still don’t get out to shows as often as I’d like, but I try to stay up to date on the many talented artists in this region.

Thanks for your time and for your support of east coast Canadian music.



East Coast Music Awards are here!

G’day folks,

Hope you’re all well. You might expect to find regular, ongoing coverage of the East Coast Music Week action here at, especially since they’re based this year in my home base of Moncton, N.B.

However, I actually have to provide ongoing coverage of the ECMAs for my real job. You gotta go where the bills are paid, right?

So while I won’t be providing any updates here, I hope to catch some of you at the shows this weekend. It’s going to be a blast!
