Dr G is a theremin-playing space geek on a mission to spread the word about science! Merging hooky new wave beats with lyrics explaining science and the natural universe – think Talking Heads fronted by Bill Nye the Science Guy – Dr G creates a sound that is utterly unique, and as educational as it is infectious.
Before striking out on his own, Dr G spent years fronting Unidentified Funk Object, a 10-piece sci-fi funk band based in Halifax and Toronto. After launching their first album Space Funk Party at the famous UFO site of Shag Harbour, Nova Scotia, Unidentified Funk Object toured extensively throughout Nova Scotia, New Brunswick, and Newfoundland, receiving an East Coast Music Award nomination for R&B/Soul Recording of the Year in 2017 for Space Funk Party, and earning a placement in the internationally-released comedy The PHD Movie 2. While UFO sightings are rare these days, a watchful eye might be rewarded by a rare glimpse of the interplanetary funk machine!
In 2018, the time came for Dr G to make the switch from science fiction to science fact. Enlisting a stripped-down team of musicians and producers, including former UFO crewmates and new faces, Dr G began work on an album's worth of groovy science-themed jams for all ages entitled Dr G Goes to Space! First single What Are Stars? dropped in 2018, with a full release slated for early 2019. Stay tuned!
Hailing from Antigonish, Nova Scotia, Dr G now divides his time between Halifax and Ottawa.
