I played in a kids shoe store, a ladies fashion undies show and I played at The London Palladium. I play anywhere I'm invited.
I recorded this album on an iphone4 in my old truck. I put the thing under the visor and pressed the red button. My uke is real cheap and gives me an earache cause it barks like a chained up dog.
The Wordman continues his 35 year musical journey coming back home to Toronto in 2011 after eighteen years in the UK. Touring all over Europe and as far as Japan and Iceland. 2014 saw tours of Canada, USA and The USVI in St. Croix, where the Wordman tends to spend his winters singing to warm locals and giant beer-drinking pigs.
He's been described as 'a lyrical laureate' and 'anything but normal'.
