Legend has it, if musicians spend enough time around the roaring waters of Niagara Falls, they end up making music in various shades of blue.
One morning I woke up in New Orleans surrounded by the kind of blue that shakes you so I ordered another coffee, wrote my legal limit of songs in the French Quarter and shoved them in my suitcase. When I got home, I recorded a 5 song EP inside a barn in Chelsea, Quebec called 'NOLA 2010'.
Those songs brought me to Memphis to represent Ottawa in the 2011 International Blues Challenge. I learned, "What happens in Memphis, stays in Memphis, Tennessee".
In 2020, I wrote 'Mave's Variety', a 10 song album named after a variety store in Hamilton. I recorded the whole thing on an October weekend just after Thanksgiving in the most familiar way: live off-the-floor with friends.
Since then, I've been playing shows throughout Ontario at festivals, venues, bars, juke joints, cafes, literary cabarets, and everything in between. All original, just like you.
Have songs, will travel ...
