I was raised in Windsor Ontario Canada played in rock bands at an early age in just about every bar and venue at that time, heck I wasn't even legal drinking age but never had a problem getting in bars as an entertainer. The seventies music scene was fertile grounds for me to develop my musical diversity. I've started playing in bands while still in high-school in the mid seventies and had the pleasure of playing with some very amazing people in the big leagues who ultimately settled down in the Windsor area and influenced me greatly. In a short span of time I played in numerous Windsor bands After packing local bars and covering most of southern Ontario and Michigan with reasonable success. I finally got a chance to record a full length album with a local Windsor band "JC & the News". We dominated the local club scene for just almost 2 years but despite our momentum and great local fan base our professional careers were in slow motion. Although our album worth of material showed great diversity and promise according to A&M record exec's still we lacked an identifiable sound and in '79-'81 rock'n roll was still a tough sell as disco had dominated the market some 5-6 years prior so somehow we slipped through the cracks. Had we only been patient and waited. Who knew that Rock was going to make a big comeback in the 80's. We had made a considerable recording investment. Delays, broken promises and our failure to get signed with any respectable record label eventually led to internal bickering and our eventual demise. After dis-banding I gave up on a music career, disillusioned with all of that show biz B.S. Being that I was scholastically driven and always under lots of pressure from my parents to find a more secure way of earning a living, I decided to go back to school. Having already earned an electronics college diploma I now decided a university degree in computer science would well prepare me for the emerging job market which eventually landed me a job with Ma Bell in Thunder Bay. In 1997 thanks to the urging of a friend after not even touching a musical instrument for over 16 years I came out of my self induced musical hibernation bought some gear and re-kindled my love of music. I don't think no matter how ugly the music industry gets that I'll ever quit music again it's just too good for the soul. See my previous work follow these links:
