I've used the name Son of Delbert for about 10 years now for various musical and artistic productions. My father's name is, indeed, Delbert, which means "tiller of the soil". So essentially my band name means "son of a farmer", a tribute to both my musician/songwriter father and my prairie roots. I've been playing guitar since I was 13 years old, and singing nearly as long. I've been a singer, songwriter, and musician in several bands dating back to the 90's, including Saskatoon band Paint Box, East Kootenay bands Poor Louis, MOOS, Gerth, and Rhino Halo, and Seoul-based duo Road Pops. Son of Delbert has been largely a solo musical enterprise, and many of my songs have been recorded on home computers using digital drum software. The latest 2 CD's I've recorded have included various guest musicians as I strive to create a less ambient, experimental sound, and a more live-band sound. On this site, you'll find various songs from the last 13 years or so. I've just begun forming a band around my new CD, "The Sun is Going Downstairs" (Dec. 2011).
