Growing up in Southern Ontario you could hear any kind of music on the radio from classical through broadway, country, rockabilly/rock ‘n’ roll – those and more were the influences I absorbed. My high school trio buddies and university singing partners shared their music and kept me inspired. After many years I’ve been reaching back to those times for stories and, motivated and encouraged by songwriting friends, finishing old ideas, resuscitating songs from the archives and writing new ones. The folk/roots/(insert favourite term here) family in Toronto has opened a musical world just as rich as the “old days”. Being welcomed into and becoming part of that family has made me feel I was coming home.
