Telecommunicate is a new 4 song EP based on the true story of Robin Van Helsum. Nicknamed “Forest Boy” by international media, Van Helsum was a troubled runaway who convinced the world that he lived alone in the woods for 5 years. Just as quickly as his hoax was uncovered, Robin fled the authorities again. The father of a young child, estranged from his ailing father, and working for a telecommunications company - Forest Boy’s story is as nuanced and compelling as it is mystifying.
The entire proceeds of this EP (written, performed and recorded in 7 days) are destined for a new tour vehicle for Aidan Knight and company. Hence, yknow, the van.
Pre-order Telecommunicate via Bandcamp.
I designed a different cover for each song off the new EP

The cherry blossoms are out
I had an amazing time in Ontario and Quebec this week. Thanks to all the wonderful friends, new and old, that showed me such great hospitality.
I won’t be playing many shows until the fall; the next time you see a “Teen Daze” set, it will most likely be with a full band! TWIST!
