A Mercury Zephyr, Peavey T20 bass and a hundred pound Yamaha amp were the tools to get started at the Medicine Hat Elks club with an old time band, Common Country. This was a great education, mature musicians are very encouraging, and lately my interest has been learning flatpicking and instrumentals, as well as writing. In 86 my brother Tim hired me to play in his band Wichita, we travelled the club circuit and he allowed me to fill the drummer's spot and play lead guitar, whatever was needed. Recording and playing on Tim's album started an interest in writing, an obsession that continues to this day. Recently, thanks to Ye Olde Jar Bar and Liquid Listening Lounge, I've been fortunate to open for artists like Martyn Joseph, Garnet Rogers, Russell DeCarle, Lennie Gallant, Andrea Ramolo and more.
