Started playing piano when I was in grade school - got serious when I was 15 and started writing songs. A few years later I caught the singing bug.
What was the first concert you ever went to?
Either "Beatlemania" or the Bay City Rollers in 1977 - not sure which. I would have been 12.
What gear do you use?
Favorite keyboards that I've used over the years are a Korg 01/W synth and a Hammond M3 organ w/ Leslie 147. For vocals, I use Gefell and Neumann mics.
What are you looking for from Fandalism?
I like networking and collaborating with other artists. Would also love to be in some sort of a band again, playing interesting original music in front of people - not necessarily mine.
Who was your biggest musical influence growing up?
Emerson, Lake & Palmer
Are you in a band? Have you been in bands?
I gave up on bands in the late 90's and started concentrating on recording projects instead. I came "out of retirement" to front prog rock band Kinetic Element for a couple of showcase gigs in 2015, and a festival slot a year later.
What's the biggest audience you ever performed to? What's the smallest?
Biggest was a few hundred at the Terra Incognita prog rock festival in Quebec, 2016. Smallest was at CBGB during the 80's, where the band outnumbered the audience.
You're stuck on a desert island and only get to bring one album with you. What do you pick?
