Thanks for checking out Brick Background. Right now the blog is based out of Philadelphia as I await my wife to finish her post-doc here at Penn. I am originally from Whitehorse, Yukon and was raised there until I was old to legally leave, at which time I headed straight for Vancouver Island, spending about 8 years there before moving onto Vancouver BC. I still kinda consider Van home, though with visits getting few and far between and other good friends leaving it is becoming a thing of a past. Not sure what’s next for us, but always looking forward to a new adventure. The focus of this blog will not be solely on Philly, but everywhere that has influenced me along the way.
I like music with an edge. That’s what this blog will be about. I try to avoid looking for music based purely on genre, but I definitely lean towards the heavy. Hopefully I can introduce you to something new, or pleasure your ears with something familiar. This is new to me, so expect constant change within the blog until I find my niche but you can expect music, good music, and lots of it.
