I’m a multi-instrumentalist and songwriter, and working musician since the late ‘70s. I have recorded or toured with Alanis Morissette, One 2 One, and Fist (“Myofist” in Europe), and shared the stage with other big names, some legendary, others not well known outside Canada. I made a career of supporting other artists’ dreams, but have been writing songs all along; I just never had the time or confidence to release my own album. I guess I can thank COVID for forcing me to stay home, and giving me the time to finally do it.

Step Up
This was inspired by politics, and certain narcissistic and irresponsible heads of state who refuse to take responsibility for their actions (or lack thereof). They need to step up to the plate, or the voters will step up at the voting booth.more

Coal Dust Town
The city where I live was historically a coal mining town. In more recent times, though, there has a problem with addiction and homelessness, tent “cities” springing up, and so on, and the associated problem of petty crime - property damage and theft, etc. Although I have been blessed to have never faced those challenges, in writing the lyrics, I tried to project myself there, and imagine living that life. I wrote from a (hopefully) sympathetic place...more

Beautiful
This song idea has been around a long time - I think I originally recorded its grand-daddy when Extreme was still popular... Anyway, it’s been through a number of iterations before ending up here. To me, this song is two things: It’s a bunch of different styles combined into something that I think works well together. I drew on a number of my influences, from rock, R&B, even those horn bands from the ‘70s, and fused it together. And it’s also a metaphor for how we, as humans of all different races and backgrounds, each bring something different to the table, and if we chose to, we could work together and create something...
