Past Shows
This past August, the band and I took part in a show called Bands for Brothers in Arms which is an annual fundraiser to raise money for Wounded Warriors (woundedwarriors.ca). This is an organization who's primary focus is on mental health and, particularly, the staggering impact of PTSD, perpetrated by Operational Stress Injuries. Overall, however, their mandate is to help any Veteran in need as they transition to civilian life.
The band consisting of Frank Heisler - Bass, Richard Rizzo - Drums, Chris Reid - Guitars and myself had a great time and were impressed by the organization which went into the show. Much thanks to members of Stone Soup (http://www.stonesoupcanada.org) who organized the event. For those that care, our set for the show was…

In a People Bar
Endorphin Crash
The Empty Sky (yes, all 15minutes of it)
All for You
Why Don't we do it in the Road
Half Life

New Video
Paddy Aldridge who helped out, did additional directing, and supplied the location for the "Pretty" video has been learning about video production herself and asked if she could use my songs for inspiration. I of course said YES. So far she has produced Heavy Motion, City on the Water, All for You (live), and wants to work on Endorphin Crash and In a People Bar. You can view these tasty and interesting visual extravaganza's in a few places.

Online radio stn Beyond the Dawn Studios featured me in an online interview which can be viewed HERE.

Rock Opera
Still looking for Vocalists to lend their talents to sing some character parts. So if you fancy a trip to Toronto to do some recording, let me know. In turn, I will lend my vocal, guitar, and/or keyboard skills to your project.
