The group’s recordings have shown up on countless “best of” lists, and past performances are remembered fondly. Three O’Clock Train performed throughout Canada to enthusiastic acclaim, always leaving an indelible impression on those fortunate enough to have witnessed their impassioned live performances.

As a solo acoustic performer, ndnboy has performed at the Mariposa and Winnipeg Folk Festivals and was a featured artist for a showcase at the SxSW Music & Media Conference in Austin, Texas, and at the Bluebird Caf‚ in Nashville.
