Old Dogs, Same Trick (2022)
This is an album I produced for my good friend Blake Papsin. We call ourselves Old Dogs, Same Trick.
Guest players include Kevin Breit, Robbie Grunwald, Drew Jurecka, Burke Carroll, Lyle Molzan, Maury LaFoy, Kathryn Rose and Meg Contini. It was mixed by John Bailey and mastered by João Carvalho.
I produced D'Arcy's last album, Feather Fingers, in 2005. It was great fun producing Signal Hill, his "Guitar Album." And I was quite chuffed that he chose to record one of my pieces: Dogbite. It's a lovely record with some very strong guitar pieces and wonderful playing.
Recorded January- November 2017 at Canterbury Music Co.

Mixed by John “Beetle” Bailey at The Drive Shed
Mastered by Ron Skinner at Heading North Mastering

David Kaufman - Second Promise (2018)
DAVID KAUFMAN is a 70 year old Toronto photographer and filmmaker. In the late 1960s, for a period of about five years, he had a brief career as a singer-songwriter in his home city of Montreal. Kaufman was part of the musical milieu that nurtured performers like the McGarrigles, Jesse Winchester, and Ronney Abramson. This is his first CD, an album of songs written mostly fifty years ago, produced by Toronto guitarist and singer, Jason Fowler, and featuring some of Canada’s finest session musicians, with vocal assist from some of Toronto’s best‑known folk singers.
This album was a long labour of love. We started in 2012 and finished it in the fall of 2018. Naturally, it's my favourite Christmas album of John's (he has 4 I think...).
