Right at home here in Halifax, NS Canada, I started playing guitar as a hobby when I was 14 years old and my main influence at that time was Bluegrass and Classic Country Music that my parents would listen to whether it be on their radio or at festivals around Nova Scotia.
It has only been more recently, like since 2015, that I started taking Music more seriously and have started playing publicly and been trying to write more of my own music. My only regret at this point is not doing it earlier in my life. The joy that music brings to the people whom I entertain week to week reflects 10 fold in the joy I get as a musician to see their faces light up when I’m able to play that song they requested, or sing / write something they can relate to.

The first time I saw Jon Cyr was this moment at the Johnny Reid concert in 2016.
