“A voice soaked in honey, followed by a Colombian coffee chaser.” – The Charlatan

“He brings to his tunes the poet’s love of beauty, the journalist’s attention to the telling detail, the theologian’s continual struggle to describe the ineffable.” – Ottawa Folk Festival

Prior to moving to Cardiff, I lived in Edinburgh and played regularly at The Treehouse Café and Greyfriars Bobby’s Bar. When I lived in Ottawa, I performed at the Ottawa Folk Festival (2006) and had club shows at the legendary Zaphod Beeblebrox, including a headlining CD release show in 2009. I played periodic shows at The Manx, Rasputin’s, and the Lieutenant’s Pump, and I took my music further afield with gigs at Café 349 in Shawville, The Branch in Kemptville, The Spill in Peterborough, The Acoustic Grill in Picton, and The Mermaid’s Mug in Nanaimo.
