My storytelling has long been preceded and is strongly affected by music in my life. I am a singer-songwriter and one can easily trace poetry and musical structure in the composition of my stories.
Music has always been with me. My Mom says I learned to sing before I spoke my first words. In addition to playing the piano and guitar, I have done my fair share of lead singing in heavy metal bands.
In the end, though, there is nothing like one acoustic guitar and a circle of close people who enjoy what I do.
I play on and off, whenever I feel inspiration to do so: open mikes, my friends’ apartments, private events or English Bay, weather permitting. Recording an album is an abstract idea and a distant goal. All in good time.
Meanwhile, enjoy a couple of songs I have recorded so far.
