As of May 2016, I have finally (almost) finshed the new studio! The major renovation work is done and I am currently organizing things and it is finally ready, enough, to begin making music again. If you are interested in recording, contact me and check out the "Back Yard Studio" link below.

I also have another recent video taken at the Edmonton Winterfest finale concert on Feb. 15, 2014 - It features 3 excellent musicians who didn't know the song but played great:
