ABOUT

I am a singer/songwriter and rhythm (mainly acoustic) guitar player with lots of stage experience (gigging since the late 70s) playing the bar and cabaret circuit in and around Edmonton, doing 50s, 60s, 70s, 80s R&R, pop, R&B and country covers. I had a song that made it to radio in 1990 and promoted the Calgary Stampede for a while. Some of my original songs are posted to this site. I'm retired from my day job and looking to meet some Calgary musicians for fun and potential gigging (covers and original music) if the chemistry is right.

Influences

From Elvis to James Taylor, Harry Chapin and Jim Croce to Merle Haggard...I love good, lyrical, melodic, guitar based music. Recently I've been leaning toward an "unplugged" acoustic sound with strong, up-front (harmony) vocals.
