Here is an update on what I have been doing lately... Just returned from Nashville again and I'll be performing during the Calgary Stampede week 100th year Anniversary 2012, then back home to Edmonton to perform as a Closing Act NSTS during Capital EX 2012! I've been performing lots at several events in Edmonton including my own shows and I just want to thank all the people who made it out to my 'Acoustic Live' performances this year! I really appreciate all of you coming out and your ongoing support! I have just completed the Jazz and Popular Music Program at Grant MacEwan University and Graduated on June 13th, 2012 at the very beautiful Winspear Centre.

It has been a very busy summer and just want to thank everyone who came out to my shows in May, June and July during my 'Acoustic Live' Summer Tour 2011 and thank you for your ongoing support of my music.
