About Transistor Sandwich

Transistor Sandwich is a passion project that started well before the World Wide Web was a thing. Originally, it was the title of an album of songs I was putting together as a solo artist, working out of my tiny single-room bachelor apartment in Prince Edward Island, using whatever gear I could afford to cobble together at the time. In fact, this mish-mash of low-cost electronics inspired the name Transistor Sandwich. It was a challenge to interconnect such a collection of consumer, prosumer and (borrowed) professional equipment. I always felt like I was sandwiching together a bunch of “cheap crap” into a pro/prosumer wrapper in order to recreate the big sounds I was hearing in my creative head. And so the name Transistor Sandwich was born.
