I’ve been a consistent part of the kingston musical community since 1999. Starting out at open mic trying to hone my craft up to par. Today i have performed in almost every kingston venue as a weekly act, a band, or hosting open mic to fellow music enthusiasts. I also fill my summers with music festivals such as Kingston’s Bluesfest, Ottawa’s Bluesfest, Poker runs, McKinnons’ back to the farm festival, Canada day at Confederation Park, weddings, cottage parties, house parties, corporate events and any venue that provides me with the opportunity to connect with people through music. Which is my biggest drive, connection.
