Some of you might wonder how I manage to survive on the income of an independent band manager and a photographer … Well, it’s only because I’ve been making a little extra cash on the side working as a freelance greeting card designer for Hallmark. As a Bornday present to myself I’ve decided to show a retrospective of some of my best work.
I’ve peed on more roadsides this summer than you probably have in your entire life. The two that put the icing on the prettiest roadside pee cake were both in Jasper National Park.
A few long overdue photos of Seattle’s The Cave Singers and Miss Quincy & The Showdown rockin’ a sold-out show at The Royal in Nelson, BC on July 20, 2012.
A few excerpts from the Trout Forest Music Festival in Ear Falls, ON … Or, as we like to call it, Fredstival (after Fred Penner, who was without a doubt the highlight of the weekend).

Although Miss Quincy & The Showdown may have mean reputations, nothing can reduce them to a gaggle of giggling 6 year old girls faster than hanging out with Fred Penner for the weekend.

Here’s an absolute once in a lifetime photo adventure — Full moon light so bright that the sky & lake both shine hints of blue and a night & water so warm that no one hesitates to dive in naked for the 30+ second exposures required to make silhouettes appear. All light in these photos is solely from the moon.

How many upright bass players do you know who can hold their big brown friend above their head for 30 seconds while submerged naked in a lake? I only know one — Shari Rae.
In this summer’s second display of unprecedented sportiness (see Hiking Quincy Style for the first), Miss Quincy, The Showdown, and I spent the last weekend of July playing on & offstage at the Kumsheen Rafting Resort near Lytton, BC.
