Not Much! In '83 I helped record the Ron Fisher Band indie album "Gone Fishing" (a vinyl record) which was all band-written songs including a novelty song I wrote called "The Fiddleheading Song". It was a jiggy-reely kinda thing that was a bit of an 'underground' hit, (due to lyric content,) and was very popular among First Nations folks. (Good friends all!)
In '95 I made an indie tape (that's a cassette tape,) of original New Age music to express another side of my musical personality. It was called "Elm Tree Spirit" and I still have about 200 cassettes if anyone's interested!?
Besides that all other recordings have been of 'cover' material for strictly promotional purposes. (Don't you dare say 'bootleg'!)



I began performing in Fredericton, N.B. in '79 and spent 2 years from '82 to '84 with country singer Ron Fisher, followed by a move to Moncton and 15 great years, (7 full time from '85 to '92 and 8 part-time-weekends till 2000,) with American-born do-wop, rhythm & blues and soul singer and member of "The Avalons" Jimmy Dooley.
In '95 I started Mojo Hand as an outlet for my love of the blues. We have only played infrequently until now due to my own work issues.
Besides performing with a group I have also written a solo stage-play performance for concert venues called "The Spirit of the Delta Blues" which is a part music/part story telling capsule history of the blues and it's influence on modern music.
