Although the Vancouver Canucks slipped to fifth in last Saturday’s lottery for the 2016 NHL Entry Draft, they are still confident that they will pick a “foundation player”. In our new parody song, we look ahead to next month’s draft and at some of the players the Canucks will likely considering picking. As well, we pay tribute to the legendary Prince – who passed away on April 21, 2016. I’m joined by regular collaborators – the lovely and talented Marie Hui and Arielle Tuliao for our version of “When Doves Cry”.
Here is our Canucks Christmas song – it’s a parody of Run DMC’s “Christmas in Hollis” book-ended by “My Favourite Things” from The Sound of Music. We had a great time working with the Vancouver Canucks on this project. Canucks rookies Ben Hutton and Jake Virtanen join us for this video – they were so awesome to work with and had a lot of fun shooting with us. Once again, I’m joined by the lovely and talented Marie Hui and Arielle Tuliao. As well, thanks to my brother Jason Imoo for producing the song. Merry Christmas to all of you...
The Vancouver Canucks turned over about one-third of their roster to start off the 2015-2016 NHL season. Brandon Sutter, Brandon Prust, Matt Bartkowski, Adam Cracknell, and rookies Jared McCann, Ben Hutton, and Jake Virtanen all made the team. So, of course, we decided to sing about it. I’m joined by regular collaborators – the lovely and talented Marie Hui and Arielle Tuliao for our version of Maroon 5’s popular song “Sugar”.
For the start of the Vancouver Canucks’ 2014-2015 NHL season, I wrote a song about likely their strongest position on the team: the goaltenders. I’ve written songs about Canucks goalies in the past, including End of the Road (We Thank You, Lu) and Against All Odds (Luongo’s Lament) so I thought I would continue the tradition.
