ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
This new album, SO FAR, is the product of 5 previous albums, The Power of Love, Universal Justice, People of the Earth, Nashville Sessions and Change. I have chosen 18 songs from these albums that have been very well received with most of them hitting the top 10 on internet radio and a few of them hitting number One. This has been very encouraging for me but I must give great credit to those who also contributed to this success.
My musical career emerged about the age of 11 when my brother, Al, got a drum for Christmas. I was fascinated with this drum and began playing it whenever the house was empty. It wasn't long before I was playing in fledgling bands and loving it. My parents felt I was going in the wrong direction and sent me away to school. I was not deterred. The school was very strict and there was little time for music. So I made some. 'Lights out ' was mandatory at 10:30 PM sharp! Then the so called ‘duty master’ use to walk the halls to 'maintain civility'. Well, we beat them, for a few years anyway. We would get up at about 4AM when the 'security' was lax and go jam in the theatre 'till close to breakfast. After a few years they caught on and I was essentially kicked out. I was free! I began playing in bands again and loving it. I travelled to England and back to Canada following the elusive dream. I've played in many bands, behind stars and strippers, in front of fans and drunks. I became disillusioned with touring, living from one hotel to the next. I wanted more from music but I seemed out of options, so I quit the whole music scene but I couldn’t stop writing, singing and playing and learning. A few years later I met Billy Farrell who was just about to embark on writing a musical. When he learned of my musical background, he asked if I would be interested in co-writing it with him. I was always writing songs and had become quite proficient with both the guitar and keyboards. I said I would co-write the musical if we could make it a rock musical and 'Song of the Forest' was born. The musical was a success and attracted financial backing for an album. This was my introduction to the studio. Through the help of Dave Barber, who had the Waxworks studio at the time, I learned the art of recording and studio musicianship. Dave Barber has been of such great assistance to me and my music and we remain very good friends to this day. Billy Farrell and I also remain good friends and work on different projects together.
I began writing, performing, engineering and producing my own demos with the help of friends like Charles Robertson(The Cooper Brothers-who often toured with the Doobie Brothers), Randy Martin, Al Hoffman and Rocky Howell(Major Hooples Boarding House ) . It was Rocky who introduced me to a fellow band member, Gary Hintz, and his studio, ‘Uncle Gerry’s Place’. Gary is a wonderful bass player, singer and engineer and Uncle Gerry’s Place became a haven for music with the help of Reiner Haussler engineering. I played and recorded with talent you wouldn’t believe! Katalin Kiss, Daniel Davies, James Anthony, Toby Mathis, Rob Dice, Grant Heywood, Corrie Barnes, Tim Louis and latter with David Kalmusky, Paul Shilton, Kevin Gingrich, Bruce Mitchell, Jim Sales & Robin Henry.
My songs attracted the attention of some of Nashville’s heavy weights like Harry Finfer, and I travelled down to Nashville and Hendersonville to record and meet many interesting and very talented people.
I am very fortunate to have the opportunity to play and record with such talented people and to write music that often has a message about moving in a positive direction within ourselves to grow the world a better place for all beings.
