Josh Richardson – ‘Ataraxia’ [New Music]


Ataraxia is a Greek philosophy term used to describe a lucid state of robust equanimity that was characterized by ongoing freedom from distress and worry; it’s also the title of the new album by ambient musician Josh Richardson.
The last few years has seen the release of a number of  smooth joints from Owen Sound musican Richardson, and with the four track ‘Ataraxia’ he continues on his way to becoming Canada’s answer to Brian Eno…and that’s a very good thing.

New Video: Reuben and The Dark – All Or Nothing

dark video


“I had tears in my eyes for most of the day on set. What the actors each brought to this video was so personal and powerful. I was honored that they opened their hearts to this song in the way that they did. Kaelen did an amazing job being on all sides of the camera and remaining so focused and present through the project.”

-Reuben Bullock
