I am a composer/guitarist from Ottawa, Canada. I write mostly instrumental, guitar-based music encompassing Latin, Caribbean and smooth jazz flavours. My music has received considerable airplay on CBC across Canada, Stingray Radio's Smooth Jazz channel (formerly Galaxie), Rythme FM 97.1, Jazz.FM91, The Jewel, and many other radio stations in Ontario.

My instrumental releases and reviews are available via the artwork icons below. Older releases can be found through the "Music" drop down menu above. Thank you for visiting and listening.

We have completed the percussion parts for eight pieces. René F. played a nice variety of instruments; udu, timbales, caxixi, guiro, claves, cha-cha bell, maracas, woodblocks and even a pair of sandpaper blocks that my wife reminded me we owned. I can’t believe that I wrote so many percussion parts! Next up, palm fronds wave as Tom Denison and Norm Glaude add drums and bass for two bossas on my new project.

November 19,

Today marks the start of tracking for my new, full-length “Tropical” album, just ahead of our first major snowstorm. We’re recording at Gallery Studios here in Ottawa with Dean Watson. For our first session, “Congaman” René Fortier laid down some great conga and bongo parts. We’re hoping to have our following percussion session late next week. A great start!
