Indo-Folk-Rock . . . where Eastern rhythms and melodies meet Western Folk-Rock
Hi Folks, hope all is well.
It has been a great summer so far musically and weather-wise, so I hope your out there soaking it all in. Had a great gig at the Backyard Barbeque hosted by IS Café (Thank you Patricia and Joy) last weekend. I love playing outdoors and/or home concerts, so if your interested in setting one up please give me a shout.p>
Some upcoming shows:
This Saturday August 2nd at 2:00pm, Village Vibe Art Series, 2253 Leigh Square in Port Coquitlam . A free all ages outdoor concert. I'm on at 2:00 pm followed by the talented Maddy Rodriguez at 3:00pm. www.portcoquitlam.ca
August 8th and 9th I'm back at my second home Bistro 72 in Newton from 7-10:00pm both nights. A great little venue with awesome food. www.bistro72.ca
August 21st performing at the Chinese Bunkhouse outdoors (if weather is poor then we will move inside) with my friend Greg Stuart on percussion. 5180 Westwater Drive in beautiful Steveston starting around 7:00pm. Played here a few times and the venue is gorgeous. Sponsored by The Steveston Folk Guild. www.stevestonfolk.net
As you may know cd sales for artists are on the way out. Still many people prefer to buy something physical and we artists thank you for the support. All of my songs are available on iTunes and other sites so find time and check out your local artists. You can download your favorite singles instead of buying the entire album.
I am currently working on writing my next album and hope to have it completed in a few months. Meanwhile we will be revamping our website and adding some new videos in a few weeks of me playing some tracks off the last two albums solo....and perhaps some new tunes. One new song "The Man Cold" has had good early reviews....achoooo.
I have also been working with a new friend who has become my manager and relieved me of a lot of daily duties. I hope to introduce her soon once we have ironed things out. I'm grateful to have met her...one of those karma things.
Purple Haze my 99 Civic stands at 1,060,000 kms and counting. Somebody pleeeease tell Honda.

If you are able to share it that would be great. I wrote the song Peace shortly after the shootings last year at the movie theatre in Colorado and the Sikh temple in Wisconsin. I wanted to tell a story that this is not who we are... we are born to be kind.
That creativity bug I always mention is in full crawl…thank you always for your support.
Enjoy the beautiful weather.
