I've been playing guitar since I was 14 and green. I have deep interest in song-writing and using the guitar and my voice to tell unique stories and make strange noises. I really began to pick up speed with my playing at the age of eighteen when I moved to Lindsay, ON to attend college for an environmental program.
While I was living in the town of Lindsay I met Ken Davie, Dave Dunn and Kramer Brimley who shared a love of music. The three of us began meeting once or twice a week to blast our alcohol addled music and rehearse for gigs at the local bars and the Auk's lodge, the college pub.
The music that we made was free style and carefree. Kramer Brimley, a wild man, who would play his banjo and guitar by day then drink heavily through the night became a stead-fast accomplice and musical co-conspirator. Kramer and I jammed for hours knocking out tunes like "Uncle John's band" by the Grateful Dead, or "For the turnstiles" by Neil Young . Kramer and I eventually formed The Goatmen.
I've continued trying to spark a fire, to capture beauty with sound and imagery. Perhaps if all the ducks line them self up just right and the beat is fucking powerful...you'll be able to hear it too, deep within my music, that subtle magic that fights to stay alive.
