I'm ready to perform anywhere on Vancouver Island and can be be hired as a solo, duo or trio/band for private parties, weddings, corporate events or live music venues. I have over 25 years performing experience in the music industry.
I most perform Folk, Americana and Blues originals and also re-imagined covers of classic hits in several genres from over the past 50 years. I have a very warm acoustic and vocal style and have lots of experience playing weddings, corporate events, private parties and live music venues.
