I've been in a few garage bands and high-tech-company bands since 1969, nothing professional. At the moment I'm just hoping to jam -- I moved to Dartmouth in 2021 and I miss my musical friends back in Ottawa. I'd consider playing in a band if it came up -- preferably bass -- and I'd be happy to help with musical projects.
I like doing both covers and originals.The songs uploaded here were multi-tracked in my home studio for songfight.org.
