Gritty blues with a contemporary point of view. Searing guitar and passionate vocals. Harmonica, slide guitar, sardonic humour, and a deep respect for the traditions of Muddy Waters, Robert Johnson, and the other blues greats.
As much as I can. I play in clubs and bars in Canada, especially in the Prairies and in Ontario. I'm trying to organize a European tour, and of course, I'm reaching out to the United States.
I love playing live. There is nothing like it. Pure, direct communication, both on and off stage.
I had a pure down-and-dirty blues bar moment last summer. I was playing a guitar solo with my eyes closed, when I finished the solo I looked up onto the dance floor and there was a naked woman dancing in front of me.
