Who We Are
We are passionate fans of Canadian music who are stuck south of the border… but we don’t let geography get in the way of following our favorite music.
L ~ Exposed to the wonders of CBC and Montréal Canadiens hockey as a teenager thanks to a satellite dish in rural Kansas, I have been an unabashed lover of all things Canadian ever since. I am a lifelong collector of esoteric and varied music, a teacher of piano, and an aspiring multi-instrumentalist (guitar, mandolin, mandola, ukulele). In real life, I work in the field of technology.
M ~ The bare necessities: Tim Horton’s coffee. Hockey, hockey, hockey. Cold Rickard’s Red. This may sound like the average Canadian male, but I am a Brit who crossed the ocean and crash-landed in central Pennsylvania. (To quote Blue Rodeo, “What am I doing here?”) As a longtime music lover, access to CBC radio has exposed me to a great Canadian music scene. As a budding bass player-in-training, I enjoy the live music experiences that reinforce my passion for music, both as a listener and a musician.
Team GDW is also supported by a fine staff of ferocious felines who (barely) tolerate practice nights and always decline the offers to accompany us on our musical road trips.
