GUITARIST | SINGER | SONGWRITER

Who the … ?

Best known as the singer/guitarist/frontman for Saskatoon hard rock band Riff Raff, I’m also performing select dates on my own with an acoustic guitar and a couple of fancy pedals – stripping down an eclectic selection of  songs spanning many genres, as well as “road-testing” original compositions.

I’m still fronting Riff Raff too, so for all things RR, hit our site.

With Riff Raff, we have twice been named “Saskatoon’s Best Cover Band” by Planet S Magazine, and I was honoured in 2016 to have had my solo show named one of the “Top 6 Things to See in Saskatoon“by Planet S Mag.

I am currently also in the studio writing and recording my first orginal album with an eye for a late 2019 independent release.

Coming at you live.
