Bassist for folk fusion trio Augusta and experimental fusion group Alter; founder and director of rock group The Undoing.
I grew up musically playing to some of the great rock/prog groups from Europe and Canada, and the States. I have been fortunate to play alongside great musicians my whole life and enjoy the interactive play that comes from these experiences.
I own 3 custom made Mollerup instruments (1 x 5-string fretted, 1 x 5-string fretless, and 1 doubleneck: 12-string guitar on top and 4-string bass on the bottom), a vintage 1976 Rickenbacker 4001 4-string, a 4-string Fender PBass, and a Fender Stratocaster equipped with a Roland GK system which allows me to access many virtual guitars, tunings, synths, and other sounds beyond the regular guitar pickups.

About The Undoing:
The Undoing is a full 6 piece rock band featuring double-neck guitar/bass, bass pedals, 12-string guitars, flute, vocals, mellotron, synthesizers, organ, piano, drums and percussion
A Canadian band formed in 2012 and based in Vancouver, The Undoing was created for the sole purpose of performing in concert settings for the ultimate enjoyment of both musicians and audience.
Directed by Jason Dionne, band members and instrumentation for each concert may vary depending on performance requirements.
Their 2012 premiere performance “The Cinema Show – Music of Classic Genesis” was a two hour concert of Genesis music recorded in the 1970’s in homage to Peter Gabriel, Tony Banks, Michael Rutherford, Phil Collins and Steve Hackett in recognition of a band whose career has spanned four decades, whose individual solo careers continue to this day, and whose influence continues to permeate the genre of progressive music. See The Undoing's concert archives page for more info.
Responding to public requests for more concerts, The Undoing returned in full vigor in 2013 to perform another dynamic and energetic retrospective concert of classic Genesis music from the 1970’s. This was a whole new show and was titled "The Return of the Royal Beast: Music of Classic Genesis". With full sound and stage lighting, The Undoing enthralled their audience with a sonic and visual feast, taking them on another epic journey into the classic melodic meanderings and musical magic of the seminal and iconic band Genesis. See the concerts page for more info.
Future projects from The Undoing will be concerts whose themes relate to the influence of Canadian bands and artists who have made a lasting impression over the years, rocking their way into the hearts of fans, and whose music endures today. Included are artists such as Rush, Max Webster, Klaatu, Ian Thomas Band, The Guess Who, to name a few.
