Got some real nice press from local writer Bruce Atkinson at Castanet! Thanks so much Bruce for the more than kind words you wrote and I can only hope to live up to them. If you scroll down on this page, he did a little pre write-up too a few days ago and I had to check to see if it was actually about me. Seeing this after a great night of playing with my brothers makes my heart just feel so damn great!! Mahalo nui loa.

A few months ago I was asked by Gary Potzkai, a student at the Centre for Arts & Technology here in Kelowna, to be involved in his final project for the year. After reading his script, we realized it eerily 3choed a song from my latest CD, 'Deepest Shade of Blue'.He asked if I would act in the lead role and I was immediately thrilled and anxious to get started! I mean, how hard could it be? Very.
Watching the crew film various bits and pieces and putting it all together was a wonderful experience and to be an actor was not easy. Seeing the goings on and being a part of it was both exciting and tiring but completely fulfilling in a new and exciting way!
This fil is only 10 minutes long and features 3 tracks from my CD 'What You Got' acting as the soundtrack for it. So check out the link and let us know what you think!
Thanks so much to Gary and everyone at the Centre for Arts & Technology for this groovy experience!
