Kelowna progressive rock guitarist
My life as a musician included 25 years of performing all over the world as a guitar player and recording artist with many bands including Lee Aaron, Tempest, Myth, Airkraft and ErinCody and the Drum. I also performed the music of Genesis and Peter Gabriel with the Toronto based group Over The Garden Wall for almost a decade.
Now, I have decided to write and produce my own CD.
Literally unexpressed millions of notes have travelled throughout my brain for years, and I’m thrilled to share some of them with you. Because of the complexity of some of my ideas, instead of looking for co-musicians I decided to do all the playing and singing on my own, except for the drumming. My underlying influences are from the 70’s and 80’s as I was overtaken by the British invasion starting with the Beatles and early Led Zeppelin. Then on to the musical magic of Yes, Genesis, Frank Zappa, Kansas and ELP but then fate intervened one day and by chance I saw a concert in Toronto, Ontario, my home town with British progressive rock band Gentle Giant opening for Wishbone Ash. That was a defining moment in my musical direction. I know that there are ears out there that need to hear some semi-progressive songs and riffs. I hope to satisfy some of these cravings for you. I do believe “Riffs every day keep the pinkies at play”
Blessings and happy riffing,
