released March 19, 2003

Many Roads is a guitar-driven journey and an emotional tour-de-force. Partly recorded in a tiny cottage in the Canadian backwoods in the middle of winter... then later with a bunch of great musicians in Toronto. I love the rootsy way in which we approached this record; many performances were captured live-off-the-floor.

Special thanks and gratitude to Paradigm Speakers for sponsoring this recording.

"He has a gift for grand musical moments that retain their intimacy... an atmospheric, emotional road well worth travelling."
Steve Baylin
