Gonna Knock On Your Door

My Mom sang this Eddie Hodges song to me in the bathtub as a kid! Was just messing around, so thought I would record the verses ūüôā

2013 Raito is Still Alive and Kicking

Hi All,

Just wanted to first apologize for dropping off the face of the earth for 6 months… life happens I guess!

The year after debuting an album like ‘Rock The Water’,¬† probably should have been followed up with more radio interviews, begging to play any gig I could, trying to convince Manitoba Music I’m serious about International Exposure, coercing friends and family to buy t-shirts, CD’s and ‘Raito’ little key chains, etc. Not my style, I guess,¬† and in the mean time I certainly let life get in the way of promotion and honestly stopped music all together.

FACT … the album is still here :)! Alexander Keith could still license my single (long shot I know)! I’m still here with 8 fingers, two thumbs, and capable vocal chords. I am slowly getting back my MOJO and starting to write again. I do still believe you and I can achieve anything we set are minds too.

Stay tuned!!!

In the mean time, hope you are enjoying May Long Weekend!

Rock The Water Live on Radio CKUW 95.9 FM

It has been an interesting RIDE releasing ‘Rock The Water’!¬† A highlight for sure has been hearing my songs on the radio for the first time. No doubt… even though it was 7:15 am in the morning on college radio a few weeks ago, I had an ear to ear freaking¬† grin that hasn’t subsided since…

Thank you to KMo at CKUW, 95.9 University of Winnipeg College,¬† radio for¬† making this a reality, and letting me come in to sing¬† ‘Mr Maker’ live. I have posted the full radio¬† interview on SoundCloud here :

Here is the video of the song Mr Maker that I sang live on radio. It’s definitely rough, but again a big, big¬† thanks to KMo for grabbing the video camera and catching the moment live in technicolor!
