*...Reflections On A Past Live...* 

 Spent the 4th of July in a small town called Skagway, in Alaska. A beautiful city with that small town charm. Smoky and the usual bustle of tourists from nearby cruise ships made for a unique Independence Day celebration. Cheers to bars in Skagway for knowing how to pour a drink properly. Got some upcoming shows this week. Playing solo, instrumental guitar for a funeral, a couple of Rixxx & Roxx shows (for all we bicker, when it comes together we really get cooking), and a King Swardfish gig. There's a festival this weekend that will never hire me or Rick, it's frustrating cause we play other festivals, original music and we kill it every time. But I hear that ticket sales are in the decline, which reminds me that sometimes the brightest stars burn out the fastest. Seen lots of festivals come and go, I'm still standing and playing big shows and even more original music. Just focused on making each show the best experience it can be, and never losing sight that the end game is farther away than my hometown. Some big shows coming down the line for the fall and winter too ;)

*...Ohh Hell-O Summer...* 

Here's a clip from a recent, outdoor, summer concert here in the Yukon. This is an original Flamenco song called "Julia". I had originally wanted to do this show with a band, but was told I could only perform with a duo. I always hear a full band in my head when I play this, so to me it always sounds different, not bad, just different. Anyway, there were a lot of people there, and not everyone talked through the show like the two awesome people in this video ; ) Was nice to play music that not everyone else does around here, and debut new, original compositions.

Be Excellent To Those Who Matter!

*...To The Nines...* 

 Fun weekend playing music. In Atlin, the Bobcats expanded to a 9 piece band (not including Bob the Cat who was very much there). Was a good time, see the picture below. Sunday night was a fun show at the Gold Pan with EverGold! Great sound and grooves, and tips. Got some new shows posted, summer is booking up. Writing new tunes and will be debuting them. Sold some music on the weekend so that was great. See you on the road!

*...Stay EverGold Pony Boy...* 

Playing bass in a new band called EverGold. This group is the brainchild of Sean Balsillie. I first met Sean at a Rock Band camp I was teaching a while ago. He did music a little bit, but focused on dance. Now, he's been hitting music hard, and his voice is angelic. He's got some amazing songs written and asked me to play bass. Rounding out the band is Steven Guenette on drums. We got some bar and festival gigs coming up. Check it out. Also, have a jazz gig on Thursday. Lots of bass. Playing bass at Chickenstock. Hope you are all enjoying the summer and don't forget if you wanna support, share or buy some music...
Cheers from the Yukon,


*...Aprils Showers...* 

As April comes to a close and another May dawns...2 shows this week, amidst some tech work. Wednesday I'll be gracing the Whitewater Wednesday Jam in its new location at the Towne Club, as the feature act. Will be playing some new songs live and practicing my solo set. Saturday night at the Local Bar is the no theme party with Rick Sward, John Phelan, Katie Hunter, and Jamie Pickard. We play originals and covers spanning almost every genre from Jam band, Reggae, Blues, Ska, Swing, Oldies, Rock, Country, African, Jazz, Funk, Folk and more...Would be nice to see a good crowd there. They have the best stage in town. New lights and even smoke machines. Place is getting a cool vibe...Please be sure and check out my music and if it moves you be sure and take it home with you...Cheers from a dusty, brown Yukon.

*...Rock Bands...* 

Wanna unleash your inner rock god or goddess? Looking for musicians in Whitehorse to round out rock band classes. I have people already lined up and interested but need a few more people to fill up the classes. Looking for: beginner/intermediate kids aged 10-12. Intermediate kids 13-17. And adults beginner/intermediate...You'll get top notch lessons on being in a band, learning songs, performing, playing different instruments (drums, guitar, bass, keys and vocals), and how to do your sound, all from a working professional with a lot of experience being in bands and playing and recording. Lessons are downtown, and once or twice a week depending on availability. For more information send me a message : )

*...F***ing Slayer!...* 

 I love Slayer! I love Evil Has No Boundaries, Criminally Insane, Raining Blood, South of Heaven, Angel of Death...I love Highway to Hell (the album and the song). It doesn't mean I sacrifice babies or walk around goose stepping. I love rock n roll and heavy metal and it makes me happy. I also use the f word. Yet, somehow life goes on...If you're on FB like my music page. I wanna get up to 1,000 likes by summer. Lots of shows coming up and other stuff...stay tooned.

*...Sprung Was Just Around The Corner...* 

 It's spring time in the Yukon (or false spring before third winter). Snow is melting, sun is shining, and people are happy. Got some more gigs coming down the line and looking forward to the diversity of them all. I thought when Soul Migration ended that I'd miss out on a lot of the high paying gigs, cause we made more money than any other band, but those gigs are coming back. It really shows that people believe in the brand I've been trying to create, which is consistently delivering a polished, professional, and fun product. Don't forget to phone up your local radio station and get them to play my songs. Also, a friend of mine is doing this campaign where he's trying to get his song in every country. Basically just having someone have a copy of it (digitally or otherwise). I think I might do that, as I already have a global reach of friends from traveling, playing, and networking...Thanks for checking in on this site and wherever you are, have a great day...Here's a shot from Chickenstock!

*...Out With the Mold...* 

 You may have noticed some changes here? Been overhauling this website so it looks better and is easier for you to navigate. Check out the new bio, for some cool stuff you may or may not have known. Also shoutout to everyone from the Yukon African Music Festial, and Rick, Gabor and Scott for the kick ass band! On top of that, still doing a lot of shows and rehearsals. Please remember to support your local musician, and me: go to live shows, buy music, spread the word, and sign the guestbook. Stay tooned :)
