Grand Central Station.

Grand Central Station.

Apr 15, 2014

This was a cool shot from a March getaway in New York City.

If you look closely, you’ll see me wistfully in the centre trying to stay still for the camera’s extended shutter speed. The shot was taken en route to Penn Station where we boarded a train for the 31 hour trip on the Silver Meteor to Miami.

It was a great journey. If you’re ever looking for a way to really unwind, there’s something incredibly soothing about train travel.

Having left the actual Grand Central Station, I oddly find myself returning to it at home. April has the familiar buzz of taxes, contracts and preparations for a busy summer.

Public show this Sunday March 20, 2014 @ Parkhill on Hunter.

This year kicked off a little earlier with a wedding on April 12, 2014 at Archeo in Toronto’s Distillery District. It was a phenomenal event. Great people, great sound and great service.

For anyone in the Peterborough area this weekend, I’ll be performing a public show for Easter Brunch at Parkhill on Hunter. The show will feature a range of new instrumental guitar material from 10:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m.

Private events at Steam Whistle, Le Select Bistro, Oliver and Bonacini’s Windermere House, and Ottawa’s Museum of Nature.

March and April have been exceptionally busy months in terms of bookings. Some great shows have been added, including functions at Viamede Resort (Stoney Lake, ON), Steam Whistle Brewing (Toronto, ON), Oliver and Bonacini’s Windermere House (Windermere, ON), Queen’s University (Kingston, ON), Le Select Bistro (Toronto, ON) and The Museum of Nature (Ottawa, ON).

Guitarist for Vintage Green Records’ recording artist Roveena.

In other news, I’ve started work as a guitarist for Vintage Green Records’ recording artist Roveena. She recently finished an exceptionally well-crafted EP and is preparing for a number of shows this summer, the first of which is at Julliette’s Place Annual Gala on June 27, 2014 (Toronto, ON).

It’s an incredible pleasure to be working with such a talented singer.
