No shows in January but still teaching and some possible shows in February and beyond! Be on the lookout on YouTube, and other social media platforms that still promote free speech. Really miss playing shows! Hope you all are well and safe! Keep practicing!
Usually Christmas is when I'm busy playing parties and shows, it's good for the mind and the pocketbook. Had a lot of work cancelled. No shows on the horizon and winter. Looking forward to some downtime to record and get new originals out there. Hope you all are staying safe and sane!
Thanks to Cabin Fever for the fun, and SOLD OUT show last weekend. Always a pleasure to play my bass and groove out in front of a packed house. Miss playing shows. Got 4 shows coming up, and the 5th was cancelled due to Covid. Was gonna be a road trip with my friends in Jagermeister. Covid f*cking sucks! More music and online lesson videos coming soon...Also still available for in person or zoom lessons on guitar and bass!

Thanks to Dena Zagi and Arts Centre techs for a fun show this past weekend and letting me play bass! This photo is courtesy of Mike Thomas. And thanks to Paddy's Juke Joint and King Swardfish for another fun show and getting to play guitar. Some amazing grooves happened and was nice to be back on stage! Hope you all are staying safe during this Covid craziness!
Still alive and kicking...Played some amazing shows over summer, although small or parties, there was magic. As fall approaches, there are almost no shows lined up and nothing in the foreseeable future. Teaching lots (can do online so hit me up). Doing recording on my buddy's album (Guitar and Bass) and stoked for it come out as I think it will really get my name out there, and it's leveled up my bass playing. Hope you are all safe and getting by. Sending love and hugs to all my musician, tech, and artist friends around the world who are all out of work. Stay strong!
Sometimes in the biz, it seems like life throws you a thousand rejections, between the cliques and struggles of trying to maintain a career that doesn't exist anymore thanks to Covid. It can feel pretty heavy...Then you post a video of you playing a flashy, cool, guitar solo, at a block party, of Lovers In A Dangerous Time and Bruce Cockburn himself likes the video and it lights a fire under your butt. God, I love music!
An article from Uganda about my song Give Me water has over 100,000 views. Pretty cool, and it makes me heart swell. My friend Adrian added some cool lyrics and then my friend Brenjeezy recorded it with the Kazo kids of Kawempe choir. Nice to see this song touching people all over the world :)
Here's a new Solo Artist Promo Video for 2020. I do a lot of solo shows and finally made a video showcasing that side of my performing. The freedom of playing without a band is pretty incredible, as you can fully, and freely, jam. You can take the songs anywhere you want them to go, and you can really be open to the way that vibe of the place is leading. I've been playing a lot and know a lot of songs, covering many different styles, and I can't always play them with someone else cause there might be a lot of chords or whatever. Playing solo also gives me the chance to play more of my own music, sometimes entirely my own music. Anyway, check out this promo video and I hope you all are staying safe and sane...
Played 29 shows this year before Covid19 cancelled all my gigs and a tour that was lined up. Lost a LOT of money because of that. Playing live is always priority number one, and it puts a roof over my head and food on my table. Right now lots of other full-time musician friends across the world are hit hard as well. I'm doing okay and I have faith things will be alright (for myself and all of you)...Looking forward to doing shows again when this thing blows over. Stay safe and stay home as much as possible.
So I used to be one of the busiest musicians around, until this pandemic happened. I found myself sitting on my butt trying to figure out what to do when ALL my work suddenly didn't exist anymore cause it all got cancelled. So I've started teaching online, to pass the time, and cause I like it. I've been working out the kinks of doing just that. I'm ready to go! We can cover a lot of styles from absolute beginner, both young and old, to the more advanced player. If you wanna play your favorite song, or learn to jam, wanna unleash your inner rock star, learn how to write music, or just get better, give me a shout. It doesn't matter where you live, thanks to the internet we can make it happen. Shoot me a message if you're interested. I know times are tough for so many of us, so if money's tight, we can work something out. Music is a healer...
Stay Safe and Stay Home,
