Almost Called You Last Night
A co-write and collaboration with fellow Soundclicker Steve Weyman via the www. It still amazes me that the technology exists for us to work with other musicians who are across the ocean from us...without physically traveling to collaborate.
The Gift That You Have Been
A song I wrote just before my daughter started her post-secondary journey in 2018.
April Come She Will
Cover version of a song off the Sounds of Silence album.
With Each Day
Dial The Number
First song I wrote after my divorce in 2005. It's been kept hidden under a rock for the past 16 years. I was afraid to share anything written about the experience, but the time for fear is over. It's part of my story.
Hobbyist singer/songwriter/guitarist who's been quiet for 10 years. Decided to get the songs out there now. Had dreams of the big time, but know it isn't going to happen now and that's okay. I still love music, writing and recording and want to share my work with people.
Band/artist history
Been playing guitar as long as I remember. Think I was 6 when I started. Was shy about singing until my teens but now love to do it, and actually enjoy singing more than playing.
Have you performed in front of an audience?
Many times. Hundreds of club gigs in the 90's/early 2000's. Never made any money at it but so it goes. Biggest gig ever was 2000 Festival of Nations, opening for major recording artist Michelle Wright who was huge at the time. In Canada anyway. 5000 in attendance.
Your musical influences
Bruce Cockburn, Joni Mitchell, Ian Thomas, Van Morrison, America, CSN(Y), Colin Hay, Nitty Gritty Dirt Band, Chris Rea, Brian Wilson, David Gilmour.
What equipment do you use?
Still using very old version of Cubase on a very old PC and am slowly but surely learning Logic Pro X on my iMac. Guitar wise, Fender DG-31SCE acoustic, Partscaster Strat, Lyx Pro Telecaster, Yamaha PSR-225 keyboard, Tascam TM-80 Condenser, Apex 435 Condenser, AKG c1000s Condenser, Tascam US 2X2 interface, Isotope Spire portable 8 track.
Anything else?
It's a new decade. Let's hope it gets better, and that live music will once again someday be something that is actually done in front of an audience not just a camera sending out a live stream. It's not the same and never will be. Not saying I do not accept it, but I do not have to like it. Maybe we will be able to go to concerts in 2022? Lets hope!
