Been playing for years and I love the Blues! I have aband called Dogskin Suit and 2006 will be our 10th anniversary. Have shared the stage with many greats including Frankie Lee, Sonny Rhodes, Shirley King(BB's daughter), Donnie McDougall(The Guess Who), Junior Brantley, Jeff Healey, Jim Byrnes, Powder Blues, Long John Baldry, Fathead and lots more
Why this name?
A young fella I had in my band years ago kept calling me that and then everyone else did. It just kind of stuck.
Do you play live?
I play live wherever I can get a gig. Lately it has been mostly Western Canada in BC, Alberta and Saskatchewan.
How, do you think, does the internet (or mp3) change the music industry?
Yes, it makes it better for independent artists to get our stuff out there. Places like this keep it alive.
Would you sign a record contract with a major label?
Maybe. It depends on the deal. I ain't looking for it cuz I like being independent. You don't have big company support but you can do what you want and keep all the dough!
I have many influences including Dr John, Stevie Ray, Duke Robillard, Brian Setzer, Elvis, Ray Charles, BB King, Buddy Guy, Little Charlie Baty, William Clarke and many more.
Calgary, Alberta. Lots of friendly people and love of the Blues.
A Fender Frankenstrat and an old Fender Twin. Oh yeah, and an Electro Harmonics Golden Throat Talkbox.
