Excited to be performing a Christmas Concert with Brownman Akoustic 4-TET on Dec 17th @ Monarch's Pub (see GIG POSTINGS BLOG)

Recently had a blast doing session work with NOW 2014/2015 producer of the year Harrison Fine on some very clever kids music written by Matt Gerber... this is turning into a very fun album project!

Back in the studio doing regular sessions with Toronto Blues Society 2015 talent search winner and Memphis finalist: The Michael Schatte Band.

Fresh experimental heavy rock music from Love Tapper is currently at the mixing stage and will be coming soon.

I've been embracing the singer/songwriter role lately and am looking forward to performing 3 original songs on piano/vox over the Christmas holidays. No formal plans to record yet, but 2016 is the year to do it!
