I am a jazz-rock fusion musician and Anglican priest. This is my music website; my parish can be found at allsaintsvernon.org.
My primary musical passion is instrumental fusion in the tradition of artists like Pat Metheny, Scott Henderson, and Allan Holdsworth. My solo debut album "Unhooked" was released in November 2014, and includes guest appearances by Alain Caron, Bill Ray, Mike Janzen, and Kim Richardson. It has been described as "an update on the heavy fusion sound of the late 1970s that at times resembles the vibe of Jeff Beck's Guitar Shop." [Dean Gordon-Smith, Vernon Morning Star]
In connection with my priestly vocation, my "Modern Hymns" project translates traditional hymn structures into modern musical styles; it was produced with the assistance of the Louisville Institute and released in 2017.
