Hope you are all having a great summer so far... I know it has been long overdue this year, (At least for me)
I'd like to send out a couple of "thank you's" to a few people out there to start off with. Thank you to Sheila Fawcett and the Spencerville Mill for providing such a great venue for my acoustic show this past June 20th, and to the friends and fans who came to see the show with my very special guests that evening, Mike McNeil on percussion, Bob Windsor on guitar and bass, and also to one of my rockin' guitar students from "Rock My House Music Centre", Conner Ainsworth. It was great to be supported musically by all of you, thanks guys... It was a pleasure to have you join me!
Secondly, I want to thank Herb Cloutier and everyone involved with the North Grenville Canada Day Celebrations in Kemptville on July 1st this year! Also to everyone in attendance as well, it was a great day and I had a wonderful time performing with my great and familiar guys Barry Billingham and Rick Belanger as my supporting band mates once again! Thanks guys, great to have you with me, and looking forward to more this summer!
Upcoming Summer Dates:
Sat, July 20th – Morrisburg, "All About The River Celebration"

A few exciting updates to share with you now as I can confirm that I have in fact been nominated for "Male Album Of The Year" at this year's upcoming "Josie Music Awards" at Dollywood in Tennessee this September 20/21st for my latest release "The Long Road Home"!!!
I feel very honoured and will be making the trip down to Pigeon Forge, TN with my family to celebrate my nomination. It was a great privilege to work with my good friend and guitarist Marc D. Muir, and legendary producer Ron Nevison again, with Engineer Matt Thomson recording this album. Thanks to everyone who was involved in the making of TLRH Record!
As well, the album and third single "Would You Stay" have also been nominated for "Album Of The Year & Male Single Of The Year" at the 2019 "International Singer-Songwriter Association" (ISSA Awards)! Thank you so much to the ISSA's! The show will be hosted, and winners announced in Atlanta, GA on August 3rd.
Recently, I was the "Featured Artist" on Q108 Kingston's "Eye On Indie" season finale with "The Maestro" (Randy Skaggs) on Sun, June 30th. Thank you so much to Randy and Q108 Kingston for all of your ongoing support! I truly appreciate it!

So that's all for now folks... Thanks for all of your support! I hope you have a great summer, and maybe we'll see you out there at one of the shows soon!
