The Start of a New Album (Reality Becomes a Dream)

It was late September, 2015. I had that exhilarating feeling I get when I’m ready to begin writing new music. Then, it happened.

Nowadays, I write instrumental music. I enjoy the challenges and flexibility it allows. However, when I was writing lyrics, there were two things I always tried to avoid because I saw them as impairments—even in hit songs! See if you agree.



Even though my musical focus is to evoke a tropical oasis where things are idyllic and peaceful, recent and occurring events have reminded me of just how vulnerable these places can be...



I am a composer/guitarist from Ottawa, Canada.

My newer music is…

*carefully composed/arranged and not “jam” based
*often evocative of the tropics fusing Caribbean/Latin/World/Jazz
*has real instruments & real players
*frequently guitar-based but not always
*word-free

I have received considerable airplay on CBC across Canada, Stingray Radio's Smooth Jazz channel, formerly Rythme FM 97.1, Jazz.FM91, The Jewel, and many other radio stations across Ontario. My music has also been reviewed in Exclaim!, Cashbox Canada, The Daily Vault, The Smooth Jazz Ride and others.
