The Upstream with Brilliantfish

“The Upstream with brilliantfish”. An eclectic mix of singer/songwriter, indie and rock tracks in the tradition of late night FM deejays of the 70s.


Who is this brilliantfish?

Elusive, neurotic, multi-talented, stubborn, adaptable, dark, comedic, confessional, intense, paradoxical.

The man who is brilliantfish has been called many things, but he is a musician, composer, artist and graphic designer based in Toronto, Canada. Since 1997, he has released 18 recordings ranging from post-industrial rock to dark pop, straight up rock and several stops in between. He is hard to pigeonhole and he wouldn’t have it any other way. The work comes first.

As a drummer/percussionist/vocalist, brilliantfish has worked with dozens of diverse artists whose work spans many genres and many decades.

With his wife sweet T, brilliantfish is also half of the duo Hush & Rust, who released their debut album “These blue dreams” in 2016.

18 releases as of this year, and at least 4 more in production.

Change is the only constant…
