As a musician, I love to explore. One day I try something and it fails. Another, I get something interesting going and it’s the first pay check. The other one is the public reaction. It’s all in the day’s work. And that’s what being a musician is all about for me.  

I love to explore technically or theoretically, but also as a human. Because reaching inside and seeing things for what they are is a must. I’m lucky enough to have this living passion that keeps me alive and kicking. It’s a definite pillar in my life.  Just imagine if everyone did what gets a spark in their eyes… Wouldn’t that be a definite change? Don’t get me wrong, I want to eat correctly. It’s just a question of balance.

So, I’m looking around in the region of Québec and Montréal for show opportunities. Here’s a medley of a recent show.
If you’re interested… here’s my FB page to reach me: Thanks and cheers!!

A little hello from me, on a walk not far from my house in Cambodia. I spend a lot of time in front of a computer, so it is real necessary to get some fresh air every day. I think I will do another post in a  couple weeks from Angkor Wat. My wife and I are taking a trip up to the north of Cambodia to one of the seven wonders of the world. It is the largest religious temple in the world and should be a great trip. Stay tuned for this.
#lovinglife. For those of you wondering what I am referring to about "RiseUp TV", here is a link that will keep you up to date with it. Basically it is a worldwide TV show, coming to networks and it is about music, life, travel, ups and downs and places and faces! There, I hope that narrows it down. Anyway, get on over there. The filming is not for another 10 months, but lots of info on the characters, sponsors, charities and ideas will be posted there weekly very soon!

We can't wait to see this amazing Montreal band, "Three of us", featured on the spring 2018 RiseUp Tour and TV show episodes! Unit- T productions, recently filming the Denis DeYoung tour in the US, will be there supplying kick-ass video production and footage for the TV show as well. Unit-T is the best and brightest in video production. They are also a support and sponsor for many artists, so this is truly a Canadian powerhouse in entertainment. Christian Jacques supplies the festival circuit with great audio support and is a fixture in Eastern Canada! Follow the link to see this great band and Unit-T productions!

Acheiving success in the music business boils down to a few things. One thing I can tell you for sure. Whether you are in the music business or not, if you are not prepared to take the "risk" of success, do not expect the "rewards" of being in business. Every business person and artist is an entrapaneur. If you do NOT push in to uncomfortable areas, you will not achieve growth. In addition, if you are not willing to try new things, you will never learn from them. My father said, "you must be willing to do what others won't". Also, the people who succeed, are the ones that get in at the beginning. By the time you try to "copy" what someone else is doing, it is already too late. So....align yourself with people and companies that take a chance on new innovations and who really go for it! Certainly there are a lot of people who do not suit being in business for themselves and don't handle pressure well. That is valid and one of the things I love about being in Cambodia over the summer, is the difference in corporate attitude. Certainly Cambodia has it's western influences, but I find that there is a real respect for the working class and hard work every day. I find that our western world has become less and less respectful of traditional jobs. The computer and online selling has become so imperative, that the pay structure for actual blue collar jobs, has dropped a lot. That is sad, because  for instance, we all love a good meal at a restaurant, but someone had to deliver the food! Truck driving can be dangerous and is not a walk in the park. I spend my days at a computer and the worst that can happen is getting a dry mouth because I haven't sipped from my beverage in an hour. On the flip side, the focus of what I am saying is this. Choose your personal "risk tolerance". That will determine where you fit in the business world. My mom sells Avon. I asked her if she wanted to "take it to the next level" lol. she said no, I am happy with a few dozen clients and that's it. Ok, so her risk tolerance is low. That's great!  Musicians, artists, you want music in your life, the best news I can say is that there is no limit now, to what you can achieve. YOU decide, how far to take your business. Taking your music internationally is not for everyone, but certainly everyone can take it as far as THEY want.
