After cutting his rock and roll teeth as a founding guitarist for seminal Canadian surf punkabilly rockers Stark Naked & The Fleshtones, Ripper launched a solo career showcasing a storied synthesis of punk, roots, folk and rock and roll supporting his deft lyrical touch to create an ever expanding catalogue of acclaimed album work and award nominated indie singles/videos, From barbed fast' n' furious solo acoustic punk folk and rock and roll to imaginative atmospherics, noir ballads and sonic alt crunch, the entire package is wrapped in a post punk independent ethos .
