I’m so excited and I just can’t hide it! – New album update!

I hope all of you smiled when you saw the title even if you hated the 80s it is catchy tune; with TONS of synth! What’s not to like? It should have made that “no one puts baby in a cor­ner…” flick.

But it’s true…

My long antic­i­pated Album is FINISHED and will be RELEASED Oct 19th!


There’s every­thing from Clas­sic Rock to Modal Jazz; from Latin & Coun­try to Acoustic Fin­ger­style; and from a Jazz Chord Solo arrange­ment of a mod­ern hymn to a Celtic Man­dolin piece I wrote specif­i­cally for this album. I hope you all love it as much as I do!

The record will be avail­able online — on iTunes and other sites — after Octo­ber 19th; as well as for sale at Campbell’s Music in Fort McMur­ray, Alberta (self­less plug!). If you’re “so excited” to hear some­thing from it, stay tuned; the album will spin on the “Indie Spot­light” on KAOS 91.1 before it’s released and you will get to hear the first sin­gle! (Also, there will be a sam­ple of the first sin­gle on this web­site shortly!)

For those who live in and around Fort McMur­ray, the CD Release Show will be at the Alliance Church on Sun­day, Octo­ber 19th at 7pm — all are welcome!

More details to come… I’m so look­ing for­ward to all of you hear­ing it!
