The records I first remember being played in my house are still some of my favourites to this very day.

I joined my first band while in high school, and co-wrote my first song. Songwriting became a creative and expressive counterpoint to drawing and painting. Since 1988, I have been writing and recording.

In 1995, I joined the "Crown Jewels", now the house band for the Sunday Night Jam at Toronto's Rose and Crown Pub, and 500 Sunday shows later, at Scruffy Murphy’s nearby.

In the last few years good friend Martin Barret, his wife Nancy Douglas, and I have formed the "Retrofits", a classic pop/rock/original music act. Both musical experiences have given me valued confidence as a player, singer, and songwriter.

Almost coming full circle (in a strangely ironic twist), we now enjoy performing many of the 60s and 70s numbers we love best. Some of those songs were the first I ever remember hearing…
