about

Born and raised in Toronto, Canada, Demsky has been perfecting his unique style of songwriting with help from the people that inspire him every day, his friends and family. For the past decade, Demsky has played all across Canada and the Northeastern region of the States with the likes of Vanderpark, Fried Dough and The Boo.

2010 turned out to be a year of growth and time well spent on the making of his first ever EP ‘The Man with the Kite’. A blend of Song-writer friendly tunes, mixed with an electronic rhythmic backdrop. The title was chosen after reading Aldous Huxley’s book, ‘Island’ - a passage of which Demsky found particularly inspiring:


"The man with the kite?" Will was puzzled. "He does his work down here," she explained; "but he holds a string in his hand, and at the other end of the string is a kite, and the kite is forever trying to go higher, higher, Higher. Even while he's at work, he feels the constant Pull from Above, feels the Spirit tugging insistently at the flesh. Think of it! A man of affairs, a great Captain of Industry—and yet, for him, the only thing that Really Matters is the Immortality of the Soul."

Lessons of love, loss, choices, perseverance, devotion, and adaptability are some of the themes on 'The Man With The Kite'.

Track Name: Golden Theory
Everyone has a sanctuary
Where a landscape becomes your eyes
In this state your vision remains clear
It can even fill up your next breath of air

In my mind, I search for beauty all the time
Some are luckier finding this great divine
You can’t hold back, just relax
If you want to reach this alluring path


This is how we feel Golden
Foggy breakdown through the mountains
I see my friends promoted
In a place where common grounds are fortuned


Why do people settle for something less?
They put in their contributions
Yet their life still remains a big mess
Fighting a crowd not hoisting their fists

In our prime, we try and reach this side
Yet we go down a trail we can’t see
Alluring to some, don’t be scared, tag along
Follow my Golden theory
Track Name: Bounce Of A Ball
There is a way to find myself
Intrigues the mind, find the doubt
So we don’t remain a hard to read shell

Translation is something I can see
Whether it’s the language that we speak
Or my friends that talk Japanese
Can’t you see?
It’s clear to me

You get a little
If you give a bit of your time
We all follow these complicated lines
We speak the same language
Our accents are different
You could be my best friend
If you bounce yourself open

Being lost, you rise up
Being found, you fall down


Once you’re up, you seem to pierce to the floor
The sea is deep but you arrive at the shore
This pattern bothers me; I can’t do this no more

Being found, is like you’ve gained it all
Unlike lost, you’re emotions aren’t sound
All resides in the bounce of a ball

Being lost, you rise up
Being found, you fall down

Release yourself
Bounce yourself open
Track Name: Walking Man
If I just move
I’ll end up somewhere new
But if I don’t
I guess I’ll never know
What does this magic place hold?
Will it be worth it, I don’t know
That’s the beauty of it all
We rise to the challenge or let it all fall

I am a walking man
My curiosity won’t let me rest
Until I reach some kind of end
Regardless of failure or enlightment
I’ll stick to it so I never have to answer to my concerns again

If I just play
Will I make a mistake?
BUT IF I DON’T
I guess I’ll never know
What will this mystery hold?
Will it be worth it, I don’t know
That’s the beauty of a song
We sing for that moment or let it all fall

Walking man
Where do I stand?
Trip and fall, I’m back up again
Track Name: Whatever This Will Be
This is where the light shines in
Through the halls and out the open ends
Clearly we see it’s all in our dreams
Before we wish them away to start our new day

This game to fame
Is not even worth a grain
Trains cross over plains
Flying past paper cranes
You’ll see through the seams
Put down that loaded drink
Get a glass of lemonade
Whatever This Will Be
Let’s do it again

Its 9:23, where is Leon Spinks
Pukin with his pants around his ankles
Cross the links that lead our voice
Turn the page and educate a free choice
Track Name: It's Okay
I don’t know what’s going on today
My eye sight is not streaming me your way
Nothing more to say
Hindered by the things we say or do
Pushed by the things we try to prove
I can’t focus on you

It’s Okay
We strive to achieve the things we want to make
Creating our thoughts, trying to mend mistakes
It’s Okay, it’s Okay
A broken heart is in my cards these days

I don’t know why these days seem so grey
The tears stream right down your face
Don’t expect a change
We try and mould the things dilute
This labyrinth maze keeps me confused
There’s nothing I can do

Don’t expect a change
Our thoughts are not the same
Settle yourself some other away
It’s Okay
I wrote this yesterday
You will find a healthier way
