  • Need a vocalist/guitarist? I'm a Kanata based, 20-yr-old musician looking for something exciting to be a part of. I've been playing guitar for about 8 years now (and as a result, can navigate a bass reasonably), singing for longer, with a little bit of experience live and in the studio (TARA grad). I grew up in a rock context, but I'm a quick study and willing to try my hand at different genres. Gimmie a shout if you're down a man, or looking to start something up! Stay frosty!

  • Looking for someone to join regular jam sessions in West End. For past three years I have been enjoying regular guitar sessions at my house (located near Dunrobin) with a good friend but unfortunately that is no longer possible for him. However, I am looking to continue the tradition of getting together Sunday afternoons to play some tunes, share a beer or two and even write some of our own songs. I am looking for a rhythm or lead guitar player who hopefully can also sing. I am retired, and have been playing guitar for some four decades but still I would only classify myself as an intermediate level – right in the middle. I also love to record and produce my own music. I have Sonar Platinum and Sibelius software for production and composition. No expert here, but I really have a passion for music. I am just starting to try my hand at song writing and composing. If you are interested in some of the songs I have written or performed please see and poke around.
    I am not looking for regular gigs or anything like that although a few open mic sessions would be good. We have been performing for friends and neighbours at a few backyard BBQs. Here are some songs we have been performing regularly to give you an idea of my taste in music. California Stars (Wilco), Borrow My Heart (Nashville Cast), If I Were a Carpenter, Long Black Veil, A Thousand Miles from Nowhere, The Wanderer, Got it Bad (Chris Isaak), Four Strong Winds, and lots, lots more If you are interested please send me an email and tell me a bit about yourself and likes. I am looking for one or perhaps two new music friends. Contact Ted at if you are interested.
