FEB 1

Still working on the new album, still looking like we may have it by April. Busy trying to get gigs! It can be difficult without name recognition, even tho I feel like a talented songwriter. When I do perform the audience seems to love it. I know I’m o the right track, and will write and play music till my last breath! In the meantime still cracking the code when it comes to interest in booking. All good, and patience is the key as I book two tours this year, a Gulf Island Tour in mid/late spring and Saskatchewan in late Aug . I might post a rough mix to soundcloud even tho its not mastered yet….click on the icon below. Till next time….

HAPPY NEW YEAR 2019!!

 So, once again we reset the clock, take stock, look ahead, and reflect.

My new album will be called ‘One For The Road’  hopefully may be released by April, in time for some late spring tours I am planning. Produced and engineered again by Marc Atkinson in The Barn Studio on Hornby Island. I’m pretty stoked so far with the direction it is going, a folky alt-country rock sound that is pleasing to the ear. We are just laying harmonies, adding a bit of secret potion and starting to design a package for it..

Nov 28

Hey folks and listeners. I am (once again turning a new leaf. I see on my ‘news ‘ page I have not been active here since May ( how did that happen?) To be honest, I had a friend ( Hi Joelle!) set up my website, and have been avoiding going through the learning curve on how to add/update/post etc. I have slowly been trying to learn the ropes and have made a few changes on this site in the least few days

It is now Nov 28, and you would not know it by this page, but I have been pretty darn busy musically. I had a small Sask tour in July/ Aug and had some wonderful gigs in small towns and my home town Regina. I released my instrumental album, recorded and produced  by Marc Atkinson. People kept asking me about an instrumental album after I would play the odd tune with no words. So I rose to the challenge, and it has really opened up a new world for me.

  In late Oct/early Nov I went intoMarcs studio, check out a link to him here,  http://www.marcatkinson.com/

 and have almost finished recording a new album ( no title yet!). Look forward to a release some time in the spring.

Well, wish me luck with the new leaf, talk soon

Well, what can I say? Good music takes time, and I have let go of all deadlines. Due back in the studio mid March as well as another single I am recording with Corwin Fox. Alot of writing lately, instrumentals for the new album and some other tunes that are brewing. In the meantime I've had some great gigs recently, and seem to be waaay more relaxed and playing/singing good. I have also vowed to get a little more internet savvy, and will be updating my website with new features and just trying to stay current. Patience folks, I'm getting there. Please let me know via the contact page if you want my music played in your locale. I love doing house concerts and listening venues for folk. Also always interested in doing worthy benefits and opening acts.
