Biography

Began my career in the music industry in the late 1970's. Toured and played the folk club circuit in and around Toronto until the mid-80's. Despite a successful career and recording opportunities, life took on other priorities although I remained involved in the music industry with occasional performances throughout the years. Since 2005 I have been performing more regularly and recently released an album, "Poor Young Boy" of original songs in November 2012.
My style of music and voice are often compared to Stan Rogers, Lightfoot, Keelaghan. I have a rich, deep powerful voice that is distinct and full of raw emotion and passion. My songs tell stories that resonate with people and allows me to make a connection with audiences making my performances more personal.
