In 2003 I stayed at Bob’s in Tucson, AZ while I filmed for Engine Ears at Jim Waters studio; Waterworks West. While there, we went to Phoenix, to shoot a ‘behind the scenes’ video for the making of one of Bob’s music videos.
Bob and I became friends and met several times on his tours in different cities after that.

I had seen Buckner in Toronto years earlier and loved his voice!
This performance was an after hours gig for the Tape Op conference in 2005.

When I was in New Orleans, I met engineer, Goat, who worked with D & T.
We ended up meeting in Toronto a month later, where I shot some video of the show at Sneaky Dee’s.

I was fortunate enough to sit in on Old Time Relijun’s recording of their album Lost Light in Olympia, WA for my documentary Engine Ears.
When I returned to Tucson to the following year, we got to reunite at a gig, so I filmed them again!
Calvin Johnson Toronto Ontario 2005
Calvin was one of the first interviewees for Engine Ears. We met at Tape Op Con 2003 and from there I travelled to Olympia to shoot him recording Old Time Relijun’s album, “Lost Light”.
When Calvin came to Toronto, we met up for this gig.
Heavy Trash and the Sadies Kitchener, Ontario 2006
Jon Spencer has always been of one of my all time favourite performers!
I was fortunate enough to meet and interview both Jon and Matt for my film Engine Ears.
Paul MacLeod, Guelph Ontario 2002
Uber talented Paul McLeod was a local favourite for many in urban Ontario.
Sadly, Paul passed away in 2016. He is greatly missed and his legendary voice echoes for many.

Shellac is engineer Steve Albini’s long time running band with Todd Trainer and Bob Weston.

I interviewed her at her record shop studio in Amsterdam in 2004.
A couple of months later she toured North America, where we met up again!

Tucson based Sugarbush was everywhere both times I went to Arizona. Sugarbush comprises of twin rockers Dawn and Kee Kopps, along with a little help from Dimitri and Ryen of Golden Boots.
Tom Walbank Tucson, Arizona 2004
I met Tom Walbank playing his southern bluesy rock when I travelled to Tucson a couple of times to film for Engine Ears.
Walbank is definitely a Tucson staple!
