Hello everyone,

I’m proud to announce that I just finished up the tracks for my “Mellow Hello” EP, which includes some of my acoustic and piano works. The songs are very personal and influenced by some of my favorite songwriters including the Bee Gees, Hall and Oates, Aaron Neville and even a little Burton Cummings there too. Originally I set aside these tracks for publishing (film/tv/etc) but feedback at the last few shows (thank you!) was so positive that I decided to share them with everyone.

You can listen to three select tracks - “Feeding in Eden ”, “When I Needed You” and my latest acoustic ballad “The Postage Stamp” – at my CBC Webspace here…


Enjoy the music and thanks again for your continued support (especially those of you who make it out to nearly every show!) Keep checking my website or MySpace for upcoming show information and I hope to see you out.

It has become easier and easier to give up on rock music, because of an industry plagued with manufactured artists, manufactured hits. The bland corporate machine has been churning out hits from the same mold for so many years. We are in dire need of a salvation - and twelve34 is here to do just that. If you are a true believer in the power of music, then let it save you - and enjoy this free MP3 courtesy of us! We promise it will re-ignite that long lost spark you once had. But don't take our word for it... here's what the music folks are saying:

"Twelve34's The Only Cure has found a long lost remedy for the dead eared modern music fan. From the first blast of cymbals and raw guitar, the hammer, anvil, and stirrup buffet the ear drum to awaken a once thought misplaced treasure, true rock and roll. Vocals, musicianship and talent are all showcased in this well produced and balanced CD. It's a journey that you simply accept and enjoy. Dead ear syndrome? I now know what the only cure is." -Toronto Exclusive Magazine

"A band out of Ottawa has been churning out some catchy, crunchy, melodic rock for the past few years and has just released a new album. Twelve34 have their feet firmly planted in straight-ahead, arena-tinged rock. The Only Cure is the band's first full-length effort, a tightly-packed collection of rock with a serious melodic flair." -Blog Critic Magazine
