A fairly obscure Canadian musician that has sang for bands such as Junkhouse, Blackie and the Rodeo Kings, and LeE HARVeY OsMOND (sic) in addition to his solo career. Possesses a fairly prolific low register he uses to great effect, having noticeably similar qualities to Johnny Cash and Leonard Cohen at times. His high range is much lighter and less comfortable in comparison, oddly having a Neil Young-esque twang when hits his high mid range and above. Seeing as he's dabbled in hard rock, folk, alt country and other genres he's fairly diverse musically as well.

Examples of singing:

One of his "rangiest" performances, at one point he jumps straight from an E2 to a B4!

Pretty easy lows in the chorus.
Strong melodic singing down to E2/D2, in one of his more country-esque songs.

His most "successful" song, featuring a descending verse melody that seems fairly comfortable for him.
