The Story
Staying true to the themes that colour my music – love, anger, loss, joy and, most importantly, groove – has inspired this collection of original songs. It has been a challenging yet, deeply fulfilling experience. Fortunately, my good friend and collaborator, John Crosbie, was a key contributor throughout, bringing his brand of raunch and rock to my sense of story and song. For me, telling stories is at the heart of the Blues I love so well. It’s also about being true to myself. My heart, my truth are in this music. I hope you feel it.
