Studio! Studio!

I’m busy writing new songs these days. It’s a lot of fun. And it’s a lot of work. I get an idea, it sounds great, I write it down…. and then what? As the ever-inspring great songwriter Steve Earle says, “The first verse is easy. The rest is work.” I can’t agree more....

Public Service Announcement.

Despite previous news to the contrary, the fantastic music venue, The Backstage Lounge on Granville Island is still open! I’m sending this message to all my Vancouver & area fans. News to me, the Backstage Lounge didn’t close as was reported in 2017. It was all a...

What’s Happening?

Lots! I’m putting finishing touches on some new songs, they’ll be ready for public consumption soon. Playing them for an audience is the best way to get them in shape for the next record. Also, I’m providing relief from the comedians at a local...

Princeton Pub = Good Times with Roots Music!

The Princeton show was a really fun night. Cory Hawthorne & Horse Opera, both new-to-me acts, put on very entertaining shows. The audience was having a good time, into the music, and very welcoming as I took the stage and set up my gear. I played mostly JML...

Vacation!

I took a little vacation after my successful and enjoyable Burning Road Tour. Believe it or not, playing 15 shows in 21 days and driving all over Southern BC wasn’t a holiday. Yes, I saw some sights, I had a lot of fun, met a passel of cool people, and it was tiring...

Hitting the road for my 2018 Burning Road Tour!

I’m almost ready to hop in the buggy and start the 2nd (big!) leg of my 2018 Burning Road Tour. Audiences are really enjoying my new single Burning Road, and I am very grateful to all who’ve shared such nice compliments. I put songs and performances out into the...

The 2018 Burning Road Tour Is Coming Your Way!

I’m rockin’ down the highway this summer on my fabulous 2018 Burning Road Tour! Fifteen stops along the road have me ranging all over southern BC and the Interior, from Fernie to Lac La Hache. I’ll be getting close to where you are, and I would love to see you at a...

Summer’s here, and that means festivals and touring for me! I hit the road in August for my 2018 Summer Festival Tour, starting in Revelstoke at the Last Drop Pub, ending Labour Day at the Morissey Pub at Sun Peaks near Kamloops. In between I’m in Fernie,...
