Canadian Beats is all about Canadian music, who are some of your favourite Canadian bands/artists?
GM: By no means is this a numbered list but Tom Cochrane, Celine Dion, Serena Ryder, Johnny Reid, Deadmau5, Richie Hawtin, & Rush are all great.
If you could put together a tour with any Canadian bands/artist including yourself, who would headline and who would the openers be?
GM: Well if it’s my tour obviously I would want to headline the event and co-joining me on stage it would be great to have Deadmau5 & Richie Hawtin. I would think of it more as a celebration of great electronic music not really as a lineup per say.
What made you decide that music is what you wanted to do?
GM: It’s something that I started at a very early age so it’s always been a strong part of my life.
At what age did you start with music?
GM: Around 3 years old.
Your song ‘Goodbye’ has gotten a lot of radio play and success, how does that feel?
GM: It’s a very humbling experience and I’m grateful that there has been so much support on it. I can only thank the fans, Sony Records, and the radio programmers for making it become so successful.
Can we expect any new songs to be released soon?
GM: I have a new single entitled Colourblind featuring Andrew Cole coming out in June 2014.
There’s a ton of different music genres, what made you want to do EDM?
GM: I wouldn’t say that I make “EDM” as that term has been bastardized to mean a very formulaic and static electronic sound. I just like to write music and in the case of my artist album forthcoming, good songs with an electronica lens attached to it.
