Welcome to my site. I'm a Toronto-based musician and songwriter. Here, you can find all kinds of stuff: mp3's (and oggs), lyrics, stories, chords and stuff.
I like to go to open stages and jams, and I was a host of the Oasis Open Stage. As a result, I focus on writing catchy songs that work well even if you don't hear all of them, and reward you when you pay your full attention.
I also do sound on occasion, having honed my skill at Oasis, and doing home recording.
Lately, I've been focusing more on playing with bands, and learning to play electric. My own band is Albert Anyone, and I have also joined The Core.
