I try to mix acoustic folk with Rock, Country and Jazz to create my own distinct sound. I mostly play guitar and piano. I also sing all of the songs. I have been writing music for over ten years. I think vocal melody, simplicity and texture are the strongest points in my songwriting.
I have been playing live for many years with different local bands in St. John's:
1. Bic and the Ballpoints (1995 - 2000)
2. The Excitement Gang (2006 - 2008)
Tom Waits, The Beatles, Leonard Cohen, Captain Beefheart, Hayden, Ryan Adams, Nick Drake, Beck, Ben Harper, Radiohead, Jack White, Josh Ritter, The Band...etc.
Normally, I play a Larrivee acoustic (DV-03R). I also have an Epiphone Casino, a John Lennon signature Epiphone Acoustic, a baby Taylor, an Ovation Celebrity Deluxe, a Washburn mandolin, a Roland XP-60 Keyboard and an old Yahama acoustic guitar I've owned since my childhood.
