HUGE congrats to my pal Steve Strongman for the 2018 JUNO nom for "No Time Like Now"!!! Super proud of the record we made which I Produced and Co-Wrote. Massive thanks to all the heavies who played on the record: Dave King, Adam Warner, Alec Fraser, Jesse O'Brien & Randy Bachman. Big love also to Tim Abraham who mixed and João Carvalho who mastered. Congrats to all the other nominees! This is the 4th record I've Produced that's been nominated or a JUNO. It's certainly great to have one's work recognized in this way, so thanks to everyone involved!

Arts funding matters.
I'm very pleased and honoured to say I've been awarded an Ontario Arts Council Creation Grant.
As a recipient of a several Ontario Arts Council grants over the years, it really makes me grateful that I live in a province (and country) where we've decided that the Arts matter enough to fund. I won't go into a forensic discussion of the overarching social benefits of arts funding that trickle into every sphere both as a quality of life booster but also in pure economic terms, but I will say that I know firsthand the power that music has had in my life and in the lives of everyone I've come into contact with through my life in music.
Thanks again to Ontario Arts council for everything they do. It makes all of our lives better.
The DELIUSS Album is finally out! This beast was years in the making and the brainchild of my pal Dan Cornelius. I produced it and co-wrote all the tunes and played mountains of guitar & bass. Tim Abraham recorded & mixed it. Phil Demetro mastered it. Roger Sader, Dave Kiner, Robert Michael Higgins, Tim Welch, Rich Zahumensky, Gordon Reilly & Amanda Mabro all pitched in w/ additional engineering from Rob Sanzo & Bernard Maiezza.
