Session Work

piano + organ + keyboards

I occasionally do session work in Kitchener/Waterloo and out of my home studio, providing piano, organ, keyboard and synth parts.

Most recently, I have done session work with Gary Rebholz (aka Buster Fayte), contributing keyboard parts his roots rock songs: I'm Goin' Home, Revival, Push Away, and Long Time Gone.

I have also performed and recorded with a variety of Kitchener-Waterloo musicians, including Earl McCluskie from Chestnut Hall Music, Ian Graham from Small Dog Studio, Kevin Ramessar, Jeremy Moyer and Juno nominated singer Giselle.
