(Trying to fix this with tech support at Star Now).
Started as Rhythm Guitarist backing up other coffee house singers, but soon began to receive invitations to become a lead singer in duos and cover bands, in the '80's. In 1989, I began working with an original band in Ottawa.
Earlier, spending a year away from an engineering degree, I followed "L'Annee Preparatoire en Musique" at the U of Moncton. Choir participation was mandatory - we toured with the Atlantic Symphony Orchestra performing Gabriel Faure's "Requiem" in 4 cities.
My musical career continued after completing my engineering degree. I joined original and cover bands wherever I lived. I also acquired pro-audio gear along the way.
See the experience section for a list of bands I've been in.
