New Single Release! 

Yesterday I released a new single here in the ol' website containing an "A Side" and a "B Side". The B side is a cover of my favourite Bob Dylan song, "Simple Twist of Fate". It can be streamed on my website by following THIS LINK. Soon to be available on all digital distribution (Spotify, iTunes, Google Play, etc). 

But the song I am most proud of is the A side. I wrote "Today" for my wife Denise and played it for her for the first time on our wedding day this past September. I have had a great time recording it with some talented musicians. It will also be available on digital distribution soon! 

I really hope you enjoy these songs as much as I do!
