The Canadian musician shared how the cancellation of concerts during the pandemic was a well-needed break for him, but after getting back to work, he realised more time was needed.

“After a few years off the road, I felt like I was ready to dive back in, but that decision was premature and unfortunately the toll of the road and the pressure has caught up to me and I’ve hit a breaking point,” he admitted.

“After speaking with my team and health professionals, I need to take some time to heal and take care of myself and my mental health, first and foremost.”
