Album Notes
I grew up in big cities but live now in a smaller town up north. I love lyrics steeped in word-play, candour, and hope. I always start with the story, and then move to the lyrics. The lyrics always suggest the music, so that is the easy part. I wrote “Isolated Town” in 1995 and included it on my self-released seven-song CD, “Mashed Potato Face”, in 2000. It was only a 100-copy run. I never promoted the CD as I was not pursuing a music career full-time.

Years later, doing music full-time (piano tuning, guitar lessons, song-writing, recording, publishing and performing), I still did not promote the CD as there was something about each song I was not satisfied with. Recently, I made a small edit near the end of the song, “Isolated Town”. I was happy with the results. In October, 2012 I mailed an .mp3 and a .wav of the newly-edited version of this song to Markus Schwabe at CBC Morning North in Sudbury, Ontario. On 29-Nov-2012, a friend called me in the afternoon to congratulate me that they played "Isolated Town" on CBC Morning North that morning at 6:45!

I have also written five songs with my daughter, Devon. Now we are writing a fifth. Writing music with my daughter is an indescribable pleasure. We have released our first joint effort, “The Moon In Daylight”, on cdbaby.
