In the summer of 2007 I worked with Montreal’s country/rock act Desert Heat, who’s songs have had a lot of airplay on Canadian country radio in the past 2 years. Gigs consisted of fairs & festivals in the Ottawa to Montreal area, from being opening acts for Amanda Wilkinson, George Canyon & The Road Hammers to being the main act.
I am currently working with the band SnakeBite.
I enjoy various styles of music from classic rock, blues,
and pop, to traditional and modern country, and these
sounds can be heard in my style of playing.
