I'll be releasing a brand NEW album on April 7, 2017. Uneven Ground was recorded in Winnipeg,MB by Jamie Sitar and produced by Scott Nolan.

I'll be touring in Ontario with my band The Good Intentions in early April and then on to Europe and the UK for the remainder of April and the entire month of May. We're still adding dates, but you can head on over to the shows page to see if me and my Good Intentions will be heading to a city near you this Spring.

You can also check out the EU / UK tour trailer on YouTube if you're interested in quick taste of what to expect with the new record!
