Like most writers, I find it tough to single out which of my tunes I like “better” than others. Some pieces are a true struggle to write and record and some just seem to flow right from the beginning. Some of my songs work great live and others, well, not so much. That said, ’73 is one of those pieces that, if you twist my arm, I’d put into the “like better” category. Here’s a live in the studio version of ’73. Thanks for taking the time to listen and I hope you like the music.
My live in the studio take on Tom T. Hall’s classic song “That’s How I Got To Memphis”.
Here’s a live in the studio version of “Just Now” from my album, A Perfect Tomorrow. I released A Perfect Tomorrow back in 2000 and I’ve played “Just Now” on countless gigs — the tune always seems to push me to try and play/improvise something new. Thanks for listening!
This is a live in the studio version of “The Street Below” from my debut album, Jamie Bonk. I wrote this tune all the way back in 1991 when Sonya and I were living in an apartment on a somewhat busy downtown Toronto street. We’re living in an apartment in Port Moody now, above a different (and thankfully calmer) street, but for me not a lot has changed. I still like looking at the traffic passing by, still like staying up way too late and I still like (even after 30 years!) playing “The Street Below”. Thank you for taking the time to listen and, as always, I hope you like the music.
My single “Little Bit” has been nominated for Best Acoustic Single (8th Annual OWMR Awards)!
Here’s a live in the studio vocal version of my song “Me and You”. I recorded this originally as an instrumental on my album Who Said It Was Easy?, but I think it works pretty well as a vocal tune too. Hope you like the music!
So happy to have my music and some shots with me playing around Port Coquitlam included in the Art Focus Artists’ Association of Port Coquitlam Virtual Art Show “Visions and Vistas”. Art Focus, Babylon Film Studios and Tri-Cities Community TV did fantastic work putting together the four videos which showcase over 80 original artworks.

From my second album, “A Perfect Tomorrow”, here’s a live in the studio version of “Rain”. I’ve played this tune on gigs for 20 years or so now and I’m still finding new things to add to it. All of the outdoor/non-studio shots are from right around here — either by the Inlet (Port Moody) or Barnet Marine Park (Burnaby).
Thanks to One World Music Radio for including my single “Little Bit” in their Mini Playlist #6!
