ABOUT

I perform "say then play" recitals, on guitar and pedal steel, as a spoken-word poet. My work can be found in the Penguin Treasury of Canadian Popular Songs and Poems. Wikipedia is keeping track of my indie solo artistry. But I miss playing in a band, especially of professional quality, and can definitely contribute to its creative needs.
