Here's what I was doing before the pandemic hit.

GIGS 2019 (scroll down for list)

Fri Nov 29, 8:30-10:30pm, Dakota Tavern Toronto - I'll be playing with the Galactic Gals Space Event featuring Lily Frost, Rebecca Everett, Courtenay Stevens, and others, and the band! This should be a blast! Space music, readings, visuals, even a Tarot card reading. It's an early show so everyone should be able to come. This is something really different, a FUN multi media experience. Blast off to Planet Claire.

I'm recording, engineering, co-producing and playing something on most of the tracks. Here is the first released song, on YouTube along with a story I wrote, Welcome to the Theatre of War, which proceeds the song.On this I'm playing keys and sound effects.
