Hello! From Cape Breton Island
My name is Bernie Mckenzie I am a 55 year old singer/songwriter from Cape Breton Island Canada I've been playing music for over 45 years,Played in rock bands in my younger years,after I was married I started to enjoy all other types of music especially blues and country rock
Now I enjoy to write and preform my music as a solo artist nothing on this earth gives me more pleasure than sitting on a stage with my favorite guitar(lucy) and entertain an audience.
My music comes form my life experiences mostly,than I spin them into whimsical tales,I tend to sing most of my songs in the first person so listeners can do the same.
Although some of my music reflects a lot of sadness sometimes it's just what I see in peoples eyes and hearts but for those that know me know that i'm the original Cape Breton mushroom....Just a (fungi)lol fun guy so hope you enjoy.
After Raising My family I decided to take my retirement from my government job to follow my lifelong dream,so here I am 3 years later with over 200 songs (some of them even good...lol)
Some of people who influenced me the most..Roy Orbeson,Neil Young,Pink Floyd,John Prine, Merl Haggard,Jimmy Buffet,of course My uncle Walter Gallant(a local country guitar hero) and a long list of others.
My songs on SYM is just me and my guitar on my home computer I don't know much about production but I'm learning so hope you enjoy feel free to drop me a line anytime. all my music is protected by songwriters of Canada and For Sale......thanx Bernie
