The Green Lake Album is the album that most truly reflects who I am and how I feel about life, family, friends, nature, spirituality, and my favorite place in the whole world - Green Lake.
The album consists of 14 original songs inspired by what is mentioned above, as well as memories, beauty, joy, happiness, positivity, passion, tranquility, peacefulness, etc. There's a song that I wrote for my mom on Mother's Day - called The Love Of A Mother. There's a song written for my dad called A Father's Heart. There's a song about the nights we used to spend picking and singing our hearts out at The Little Horse Lodge with the lovely Ellie as our hostess. There's a song about old friends and the people who have helped make me who I am. And there are plenty more songs with meaningful topics and messages. I recommend putting it on your stereo, sitting back, and taking in the beauty when you have nothing else to do but just Be (preferably with a drink in one hand and some bojingles in the other).
As with all of my albums, this one was recorded and mixed by myself in a less than professional setting. This specific album was made in my grandmother's tiny bedroom in her old house in Burnaby, BC. Therefore, my albums have a homegrown and homemade sound, and some people may say a less than professional quality. I understand, but it's alright with me. With each album I make, I get better at the mixing process. So I will continue to improve as time goes on. (But hey, don't get me wrong - If you're an award winning producer and you say you want to take care of the recording and mixing process for my art, give me a call and let's pull a cork and hit some lairbs !!!)
Overall, The Green Lake Album is a fine work of art that will age gracefully (hopefully not in the bargain bin of a second hand shop in East Vancouver). I recommend checking out the many music videos that I've produced for songs on this album and others. You can see them here on the website:

Enjoy the tunes, and I thank you for listening!
