|Love That Shine|
(Released August 2007)
I’ve been fortunate to have recorded 6 records in my career, "Love That Shine" being the 7th. I’ve also been blessed to have had some friends play on this record that happen to be some of the best musicians anywhere. Drummer Gary Burke has been the foundation of four of my CD’s to date yes, my first two records were vinyl] and I love the man as much as I love his rare talent. With a backbeat that cuts to the bone and a musical feel that gives me goose bumps every time I play with him, it’s no surprise his long list of credits include Bob Dylan, Joe Jackson and Shania Twain. Jimmy Weider, considered by many the ‘Master of the Telecaster’ and one of the top rated guitarists in the world, really did make this record ‘shine’ and is a pleasure to share time with both in the studio and over some fine reds and single malts. He’s played with Bob Dylan, The Band and Keith Richards, to name a few. John Platania, who played on my previous CD’s more extensively, was able to fly in and lend his trademark sound to ‘Til I Die’. John tours regularly with Van Morrison and played on many of his early records and his other credits include Don McLean, Chip Taylor and Nathalie Merchant.I brought a couple friends from home to play on the record as well. Canadian Grant Tomkinson plays bass and Al Bragg plays pedal steel and Keyboards.
