"(Guitar Pickin’) Martyrs is about as user friendly as an alternative contemporary country album can get, and these guys seem like they would make great drinking buddies. " - Sean Cronin (University of Colorado Advocate)

Well our indiegogo campaign worked out great and we raised a pile of money to help pay for the making of and reproduction of my new album. Thanks to all who contributed and helped spread the word. We are closing in on finishing all the recording and mixing. The summer is closing in and we have already had some pretty nice days here in west Quebec/Kingston area. I am playing the first of a few patio shows coming up at the Wolfe Island Grill where our drummer bandmate Casey Fisher has done a wonderful job renovating the restaurant and modifying the beautiful patio. I am really looking forward to hosting the Skeleton Park Music festival in the park in Kingston on June 20th. It is an all day thing that is part of a larger all week event. The park day is a great family event with much to do and best of all it is right downtown in Kingston.

New Album Crowdsourcing Campaign is almost done
April 20th, 2015
Greetings! my crowdsourcing campaign is closing in on the last 3 days if I can entice you to contribute and/or spread the word to others. I am super excited about what we have achieved so far and the album is sounding great but I hope we can bump it up still so I have the resources to get this album out into the world the way it deserves to be. Chris Brown has done a great job producing and I think you will love it. we put up some songs on the page as well for you to check out: My Indiegogo Campaign

Happy Easter!  We are off to an excellent start with  My Indiegogo Campaign to raise funds for ye new album.   I want to thank all of you that have contributed and those of you that are going to, (right?).  It is shaping up to be a great listen that is about one half rockers and one half roots.  The rock part is so fun to work on in the studio as mucho guitars are used plus plenty of keyboards and stringy synthy bits. And of course pounding drums courtesy of the magnificent Cam Giroux.  H. Chris Brown has done such a solid job wearing the producer hat during this ride. We have been teaming up and scheming on musical events for 20 good years with great results. It all started when the uber group he was in, The Bourbon Tabernacle Choir, took Weeping Tile on what was to be there last national tour and what was then our first.  Our gang in total numbered fourteen, and took 2 vans and a car to move around the 2nd largest country in the world.  Shortly after that epic adventure they all moved to Nyc and set up shop in Jersey where they worked the New York city music scene for a bit before eventually disbanding. Brown and Kate Fenner had no intention of leaving the city though and they soon established themselves as an act to attract both audiences and stellar musicians who wanted to play with them.  They moved over to Brooklyn and set up shop on President street in a bohemian groove palace that many Canadian bands booked in to stay at over the years. The jams in the kitchen and especially  the back yard groovy grotto are legendary. That is where me the Wrongs were the night of the great blackout of 2003. Here is a story many musicians can tell versions of.  I recall there being 3 stand up basses at one point during the jam.  It was like every musician in Brooklyn new where to gravitate to when the power failed. It was the same place in 2005 Brown was asked by the Goodman family to produce a tribute album to the late, great Steve Goodman which included me and the Wrongs doing his most famous song, City of New Orleans.  Now 10 happy years later we are mining the music gold at his rustic studio on Wolfe Island off the shores of Kingston and hello! This winter has been right out of a Jack London story. Not quite To Build a Fire, but damn close...
