Recently I've been signed to Busted Flat Records and have just finished recording a full length collection of self-penned songs entitled "Waiting Room". This recording was produced by musician extraordinarre and weary world traveller Dan Walsh (Fred Eaglesmith,Romi Mayes,Lynn Jackson.....many,many more) at the studio/home he shares with the diminutive and talented Lee Ann Wesseling (who also guest's on the CD) on the North Shore of Lake Erie.
Dan played drums,dobro,pedal steel,parlour guitar,baritone guitar as well as a rare background vocal while special guests Carrie Ashworth (of J.P.Riemens and The Barfly's) on upright bass, Cindi Dell and Jen Ryckmen (of The Blue Rubies) and Lee Ann Wesseling on backgroud vocals, Paul Atkinson on mandolin, Tyrone Ramsey on upright bass and Hamilton Ontario native and blues great Alfie Smith on national steel bodied resonator guitar and vocals. I played acoustic guitar, electric bass, piano and synths as well as lead vocals.
The CD is now available through "www.bustedflatrecords.com" as well as at my shows, cdbaby and a host of other online distributors.



My music is a spooky concoction of old-tyme/bluegrass/country/folk with no fear of modern electronic soundscape additions. My writing style is unique in that it initially hits you as something strangely familiar until you realize you've never heard it before...kind of like deja vu.

Currently released CD called "Waiting Room" on Busted Flat Records. Co-produced by Dan Walsh and myself it features the multi instrumental work of Walsh along with special guests "The Blue Rubies", Paul Atkinson, Lee Anne Wesseling, Ty Ramsey, Carrie Ashworth and Alfie Smith.

When not touring to promote my own work I work as a guitarist for The Blue Rubies and Lynn Jackson (songwriter/recording artist). I often accompany songwriter Jay Linden as well.
