Entry 15 - CBC Searchlight

Hi Everyone,  

I hope you and your families are well. It's been a long time coming, but I think we can see the light at the end of the pandemic tunnel. So, I'm finally going to get things rolling this…

Entry 14 - It's about time.

Alright, alright, alright... The long awaited EP release, admittedly mostly by me, is finally here! It's called A Long Road. It's 7 songs of pop/indie rock, with a dash of country, and groove. It's been an emotional roller coaster for…

Entry 13 - #BLM

For those of you that may have been wondering why the posts suddenly stopped, I can only apologize for the radio silence. I thought it best to wait until  a) I had a better handle on the timeline of things…

Entry 12 - They're not done yet?!

Entry 6 - Mitch Magic

Entry 8b - Supplimentary Post: Should I get a dog?

My sister Yvette, who has two adorable Yorkshire Terriers named Mama and Jake, sent me a picture of this little guy:

His name: Nigel.

I know it sounds like serendipity. Believe me I WAS tempted. Look at that face, with…

Entry 5 - Oak Recording

Scheduling problems not withstanding, I love working with Gord Richards at Oak Recording Studio. He's a real pro and his energy and enthusiasm keep my spirits up when I tend to get down on myself. I can't wait to release…

Entry 8 - Hydrogen Powered Vehicles

Okay, this has nothing to do with music, but I think it's worth talking about. I'm sure most of us are concerned about the environment and our dependence on fossil fuels. One of the biggest challenges to reducing our carbon…

Entry 4 - Designing a website

I feel like a dog chasing a car. What do I when I catch it? Well, catching it isn’t the problem. Now I have to make it look good, and be functional, and of course, the 3 rules of websites…
