Those groups include, the Littleford/Carter Quintet, the Winnipeg Jazz Collective and the Dirty Catfish Brass Band.

Home Cookin' Article in Dig Magazine!

March 13th 2014

I am honored and privileged to be featured in the March/April issue of Dig Magazine, Winnipeg's Bi-monthly jazz magazine! I was interviewed for the Home Cookin' article which interviews a local Winnipeg jazz musician every issue.

I would like to thank Charlene Diehl for writing the article and everyone at Dig magazine for giving me the opportunity to be featured in this great local jazz magazine.

Since moving to Winnipeg from Vancouver, the city has opened it's arms and offered me many great opportunities to grow as an artist and musician and I am very thankful to all that have supported and continue to support me along my musical path!

You can find this issue on stands around Winnipeg until May 1, and it will also soon be available to view as an electronic copy online at:
