In 2010, he was named the winner of CKPK-FM's Peak Performance Project, a contest for emerging musicians in Vancouver, winning over second-place finishers Said the Whale. His prize in the contest was $100,500.

After announcing his departure from Sweatshop Union in early 2011, he released two singles: "City Woman", which blends original lyrics with a re-recorded version of The Stampeders' hit "Sweet City Woman", and "How the West Was Won", a tribute to the Vancouver Canucks which he co-wrote with Rob the Viking of Swollen Members. The Lap Dog EP was released in 2012.

On April 7, 2012, Kyprios was guest editor of the Vancouver Sun and contributed a livestream video.

His most recent solo album, Midnight Sun, was released in 2014.
