ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Whiteboy Slim has played music since he was a child, learning trumpet, piano, and sousaphone before he discovered the blues and picked up guitar and harmonica. From his first time on stage in a rock band when he was sixteen, he knew his path in life.

While studying at the Berkelee College of Music in Boston, he rubbed shoulders with musicians like Gary Burton, pianist Al Copley (co-founder of Roomful of Blues), and bassist Ron McClure (bassist with Charles Lloyd, Wynton Kelly, Quest, The 4th Way, Joe Henderson, Blood, Sweat & Tears, The Pointer Sisters, Sarah Vaughan, Thelonious Monk).

After years on the road in everything from showbands to top-40 cover bands, he landed in Toronto where he founded the New Wave Band "Dirty Movies" which still has fans today.

Finally returning to his first love, he formed the Blues Band "Automatic Slim", which played most of the blues clubs in the city, including the legendary El Mocambo, The Silver Dollar Saloon, and the Black Swan. Automatic Slim was the house band at four different clubs on different nights of the week, and was noted for having best grossing Wednesday night downstairs at the El Mocambo.

After Automatic Slim broke up, he played solo before moving west and starting fresh as Whiteboy Slim. playing bars and festivals such as the Sasktel Jazz Festival, The Mid-Winter Blues Festival, The Prairie Arts Festival, the Flatland Music Festival, Blues for Peace, and many others.

His second cd, the envelope-pushing "aka Whiteboy Slim." which earned him three awards at the 2007 Toronto Exclusive Magazine Music Awards--Best Blues Album, Best Blues Song ("Hey Hold On Stop"), and Best Males Blues Artist.

"It Ain't Art" won Honorable Mention in the first round of the 2007 Singer/Songwriter Awards.

2007- was given the "True Blues Man" award for perpetuating and preserving the Blues by The Black American Blues Historical Society of Canada.

In 2005 he was nominated Best Blues Act --Toronto Independent Music Awards.
