Adam Oliver Brown is featured as a musician on Richard Reed Parry's new album that was released on September 21. Richard is a multiple award winning artist (Grammy, Juno, Polaris prizes) and a core member of the internationally-acclaimed rock band Arcade Fire.

This activity is obviously not tangential to his role as a researcher and professor at uOttawa but it shows that the members of our uOttawa community often lead rich and exciting lives that are not simply bound by their academic profiles. A message that is occasionally lost on our students and profs, as they engage so intensely in their studies that there is often a sacrifice of other activities that are important to leading well-rounded lives both in and out of academia.
