I’ve just finished watching a documentary about Margaret Mitchell, the woman who wrote Gone With The Wind. The last line in the documentary were Margaret Mitchell’s words “ I wrote about people who had gumption, and people who didn’t.” I must have lots of gumption to keep writing music in this era of life on earth, and the sea of garbage that music has become. Don’t get me wrong there’s lots of great music out there. I’m a fan of Ed Sheeran, The Biebs, Dua Lipa, Dojo Cat, Shawn Mendes, and everyone who makes great music.
I realize that my lot in life is to provide a release, a pleasant place to come to, where the worries of the world disappear, and I’m content with that for the most part.
I did write Sittin On A Rock in response to some things that were bugging me, but I didn’t point any fingers or name any names. I just tried to make it a good groove.
That’s A Sign was released in December 2021 and I still like it. Some radio guy in Toronto called me “that quirky but lovable singer.” I guess I’m both of those, especially if you get to know me.
We (Doug Ross and I) are about to release She’s Thinkin and Good To Go which will really help this repetiore. I’m thankful to Doug for all he does for this project. Dale Rivard has played some great steel guitar. Gerry Markman, Alvin Light, Mitch Lewis and John Bojcic, have all contributed dynamite guitar stuff.

The prospect of writing a blog, for me, is a little daunting. In my life I'm usually the one who gets the conversation going by asking everybody about themselves. I was kind of hoping that Doug Ross would do the blog 'cause he's way funnier than me. But Doug has done most everything else for this project so I thought I'd better get on with the blogging.
I feel that I could blog me a river. The trouble with blogging is it's so much fun. Who ate the last piece of blog? Sorry I blogged on your cat.
Eventually I'll get the knack of it. I'll be back with more great revelations. Thanks to Doug for putting the web page together. He's also done all the sound engineering, and media stuff, and is a humble and decent guy to boot. Please be advised that, lots of work and fun went into creating the music, videos, and even the t-shirts. We certainly wouldn't be opposed, to you spending some of your hard earned cash here.
