Here we are, 2016, and settled in the vibrant music scene of St. John’s, NL. Last year I met and recorded with some amazing local musicians. I received a “Best Blues Recording” nomination, formed a high energy blues/ R&B band, and played shows all over St. John’s. Now with unreleased original songs, new videos in production, and a whole town ready to shake their blues off, here we are, serving St. John’s.
I wrote “One Of These Days” 22 years ago, working on a golf course, covered in grass clippings. I had the pleasure of living in Athens, GA for 14 years. There I switched from being a drummer to playing harmonica. I’m sure it had something to do with cumbersome nature of lugging a drum kit around to tiny bars. Suddenly, I had fallen in love with blues. There were still a few juke joints in Athens back in 1990’s, Mom’s kitchen and Classic City Blues Lounge. I loved going to those places. They were kind to let me play. I didn’t sound very good. Just a skinny, white kid in love with the blues. The best offer for gamblers 5 pound deposit casino. Come on. Increased chance of winning!
So, I formed an act called Porch To The People around 2003, with Clark Vreeland. I would also call upon the services of John Evans, and Joel Byron, excellent guitarists. We played for peanuts, year after year. I decided to leave Athens, GA in 2009. “The Porch Album” is a collection from these years.
