I'm Still Here

Hello Friends. It seems I have been somewhat remiss as I haven't posted anything to my RN site in quite awhile so I just thought I'd come on and say I'm still alive and doing fine. After making three albums in 4 years I decided to take some time off and decide what I want to do next musically. I have gone back to my main instrument...drums, and have been improving my skills there as well as attacking keyboard as well. All this in an effort to understand music more fully. I have been starting to write again but in a more "progressive rock" vein and listening to my old favourites YES and GENESIS a lot. So the stuff that is coming out now will be quite different from what has come before. I hope to post a new song in the next month or so which not indicative of where I'm at still points to where I'm going. Anyway, thanks for coming around to see what's new and I hope all is good with everyone out there.

Dangerous Man

Just posted another video from the new CD. The song is called "Dangerous Man" and is my version of a James Bond type theme song. It is a bit of a spoof and I did have a little fun with it but the song is all "serious" rock and roll!

New Album is on the way!!

Well, I'm getting excited! The new CD should be ready in another week or so. I'll be posting videos and songs from it for the next little while so check 'em out. There are two videos posted already, THE END OF ROCK AND ROLL and LET'S FOOL AROUND. Hope you like them friends!

Hockey Town

Hey Friends The CBC are running a Song Quest contest for Hockey Night in Canada so I thought I'd enter. The newly posted song is called Hockey Town...appropriately...and you can hear it here or go to cbcmusic.ca and search me out there and check it out. (But why would you do that if you're already here?) Anyway, voting starts November 23, 2013 and goes to December 14th so if you dig the tune please go to the above website and vote for ME!!!! I hope it's not too much of a pain in the ass cause the last time it seemed to be. Anyway, hope you're all good and thanks for being a fan!!!

Jim, where have you been?

Hi Folks I just realised it's been over a year since I last posted to my Blog here at Reverb Nation. It doesn't mean I haven't been doing anything, but more to the point I've been too damn busy to! I have been in the studio for most of the last 2 years working on the next record which I'm happy to say is almost done. It's called LUCKY DOG and it should be out hopefully by Christmas. It's a collection of 13 original, rockin' tunes and I think people are really gonna like it. I'll be posting tunes and videos in the next few months so stay tuned! See yah!

New Video - Reggae Weekend

Just got back from a great time down on the island of Antigua. Man, did we need that! When I got down there I suddenly realised it would be the perfect chance to make a video of one of the songs from BANANA MOON. The song is called "Reggae Weekend" and I just uploaded the results of our efforts on it. Just a fun little movie to take your winter blues away! Hope you like it!

Happy New Year

Hi Friends. Just a quick note to say "Happy New Year" to all my friends in FB and Reverb Nation land! I hope it's a great one for you! Here's to keeping all those New Years resolutions we all make. Mine is to put out my next record "Tomorrow's Yesterday" this year! In keeping with the season I uploaded my version of Irving Berlin's song, Count Your Blessings. Hope you like it. Bye for now!

New Song

Hi Folks Just letting you know I uploaded another song from the BANANA MOON CD. It's titled "Ready To Fall In Love Again". For you boomers who remember Stephen Bishop you might like this tune. Very old school but I still like it. Defintely for anyone getting over a break up. Check it out!
