Do I dare curse it? — Sep. 3.

The last show I had at the Burleigh Falls Inn was one of the best musical experiences I’ve had. The weather was ominous. There was a 40-knot wind and it was cold. Definitely not prime August conditions. After a couple of songs on the patio, things were moved inside. For those of you who haven’t …

Sparks. Fuel. And fire — Aug. 17.

It has been an interesting past couple weeks. I don’t think I’ve had a season quite as compressed as this summer. Fun things happen, though, when you take all these ingredients and jam them together. Long trips. New venues. Grand events. Lively people. It’s kind of like geology: the right combination of pressure and time …

Guitars. Guitars. Guitars… public shows.

The summer continues in fine form… Had an amazing Canada Day long weekend at the Lantern and Burleigh Falls Inn. Some of the best audiences I’ve had for public shows in a long time. Real music lovers. Appreciative. Focused. Relaxed. It’s nice to play for people who aren’t glued to screens and actually engage with …

Canada 150 — public shows.

This is a cool shot from a number of years ago on Stoney Lake, ON. We were returning from a show at Viamede Resort (Stoney Lake, ON). It was a very unique wedding performance. The ceremony was at the Church on the Rock, and could only be accessed by boat. The following cocktail hour was …

Released to the wild.

These are some great shots from a wedding performance in May at Brescia University College (University of Western Ontario, London, ON). Though I had an earlier wedding in January at One King West (Toronto, ON), Ashlee and Ross’ wedding marked the definitive start of the summer performance season. I’m excited about this year. While traveling …

New year’s eve wedding @ The Berkeley Church (Toronto, ON). There’s nothing like ringing in the new year with great people and great sounds. As I’ve mentioned in the past, I have a certain affinity for the Berkeley Church. Few venues combine vintage charm and grandeur with contemporary overtones. And the sound on the upper …

All I want for Christmas…

It’s hard not to appreciate the craftsmanship of a BMW. I had the recent pleasure of spending some reflective time with these high performance machines at a corporate event in November. Run by Granite Productions (Oakville, ON), it was held at Pfaff BMW (Mississauga, ON) as part of a networking initiative for MD Wealth Management. …

Clouds part at Malaparte.

I love this photo. It was taken on August 13th on the sixth floor terrace at Malaparte (Oliver & Bonacini). This particular day served up just about every slice of weather imaginable short of snow. Rain pummeled sideways through the sides of the tent, inching precariously towards all my gear. Hot sun would blaze through …

Public show Thu. Aug. 25th.

There’s a charm in seeing things where you don’t expect them. Normally, you’d hear sirens if you were driving through a vineyard in Niagara. I was performing at Cave Springs Vineyard for a wedding ceremony on Sunday, and strangely enough, this was where I parked. It was a cool little spot just around the bend …
