I started playing organ when I was 7 then I moved over to piano and drums when I was about 15. I bought my first guitar when I was 17 and have been singing since as long as I can remember but professionally for about 10 years. I teach in the week and gig on the weekend and do as much as I can to help other musicians and songwriters in my community.
Passion and determination got me this far and I would also like to thank a few influences as well that spurred me on. Definitely John Bonham and Keith Moon. I can listen to either of them all day it's just too bad I never got the chance to hear them live. Led Zeppelin, The Who, The Beatles and Radiohead are responsible for getting me through younger years. Thanks for your support in advance :)
It was a warm summer night late in the summer of 2010 when I rolled into the small Ontario fishing town of Keswick. My band at the time rolled into town to check into our motel and get ready to head to our gig and set up our gear. The Inn on the lake was owned by this lovely lady with a European accent with a mercedez. Our plan was to have a blast and drink it up that night and the lady cordially offer us a lift to the gig in her hot car! Before that happened we checked in and made friends with some construction fellows next door, they immediately offered us the beer and they were well into already and we knew it was gonna be a great night!
The bar was bust when we got their and was a zoo by the last set. There were about 20 girls dancing it up in the front row and it was one of the few times in my life I really felt like a Beatle. The party moved back to our motel after and ended the following afternoon with eggs and steak and a beer to cure the hangover! Good times :)
I once drove 2 hours to a gig only to find out the town names were similar and the town I was supposed to be in was in the opposite direction from where I started from. Needless to say I missed my gig. Duh! lol
Her name is Angel because she has so much soul. I love my Taylor T5 more than anything and she is the best guitar I have ever owned. The tone and overall quality is just incredible and especially when she is plugged in. A hybrid and a great guitar to write with I am so happy I found her. Now if I could only find a lady I feel teh same way about and I would be a very happy man. :)
