Ethan is a songwriter, award-winning playwright, composer, lyricist and performer based in Calgary, Alberta.

With melodies that will transport you and invite you to hum along, Ethan’s theatre music has won numerous awards.  His 2014 release, Hazlewood Pines, was praised as “an airy and understatedly pretty swath of prairie fields folk-pop.” (Mike Bell, Calgary Herald, 2014). Ethan has now released his follow-up EP Ghost Towns.  Four lonesome mountain songs, steeped in a playful mist, weaving smoky tendrils of memory around haunting prose.
