Introduction

I have been a Bass Player for the past 35 years in many rock bands throughout Ontario...have toured extensively. across Canada 3 times, 47 Eastern Canadian tours, USA for 5 years from Alaska to Florida, New Mexico to Maine and everything in between, 4 tours in Sweden, Finland, Russia, Estonia. Began playing acoustic about 5 or 6 years ago and have been writing ever since...My style incorporates some bluesy influences as well as Celtic references...due mainly to a collaboration with Virginia poet Norman Ball...
i would say that "it's the singer, not the song" applies very well here...the vocals are what first strikes you...performance is also a key element to my scene...i love to talk to the audience and bring them inside the stories...although the CD was recorded with many fine players( cello, organ, piano, drums, bg's, harmonica etc) i am essentially a solo artist...
