Album Notes
My life is an artist has always been an extreme one. My latest album “From One Extreme to the Other” is a voyage of discovery, through tragedy and euphoria in equal measure. Like many lives out there, it has gone up and down and in and out. I have been included and excluded, celebrated and demonized.

It recounts the many adventures that I have had along the way but focuses, primarily, on the events of the first four years of my daughter’s life since it began in Berlin, Germany in 2012. There are songs of hope, songs of desperation, songs of fantasy, and, most important of all, songs of humour, because life's too short not to see the joke in it all.

The single “I’m An Extra” is an anthem for those who work in the film and television industry providing the plethora of background characters that populate every single screen entertainment you can think of. Since moving to Vancouver in 2013, I have had the great fortune to appear in dozens of projects, getting SAE on some, union ouches on others and even being cast as a principal character in a tv series for one episode. I have made friends with countless others and look foreword to seeing them each time i “go to work”. Background performers work tirelessly and, often, without much consideration or pay. They are drawn from every corner of society and represent the full spectrum of personalities, t is a fascinating place to work.

The background work I have done has been peppered with moments of immense satisfaction and intense frustration. I got to work with Robin Williams on his last film “Night at the Museum 3” and got to experience his last performance before he was snatched away from all of us. I had always wanted t meet the man and I got to do so, in person. It was a dream come true. I have stood freezing in the cold rain in the middle of the night, hungry and grumpy, knowing I would have a miserable cold when all was said and done, and I would end up in bed for days, unable to work after earning next to nothing. There have been good paydays too, so it’s all about finding the balance.

I dedicate this to my wife and my daughter Iwona and Grace. They fill my days with joy and an understanding that you only get out of life what you put into it. I am so thankful that I have them with me on this journey and most indebted to my wife whose untiring spirit and positive energy gives her the ability to speak with the stars and make many of our dreams and wishes come true. She kept us out of harms way because she seems to believe, unflinchingly, that everything is going to be okay.

I am nothing without them.
