With each album Classified drops on the masses, his cachet keeps rising both in the Canadian music community. If you wanttodispute this fact check the collaborations that appear on Handshakes and Middle Fingers, Brother Ali, Joe Budden and Blue Rodeo’s Jim Cuddy, not to mention the stellar sampling of the theme from the CBC classic Danger Bay. Classified ‘s juicy beats lay the foundation for his laid back flow which is as tight as ever. The lead single “That Ain’t Classy” has begun tearing up the airwaves and will help keep representing the quality of music that is emanating from the east coast.

A proud and over-caffeinated husband, father, runner and writer. I've written for the local weekly The Coast for over a decade and have since taken to creating and writing for HAFILAX for even longer. I hope you enjoy the musings of a guy who has loved music for the better part of 4 decades, and has an album of concert tickets to show for it.
