Neil wishes to thank everyone buying "No Looking Back" for their support.
Born in Brantford, Ontario, Canada, Neil's country music roots were nurtured growing up on the family farm near Burford, Ontario. Neil began singing as a young boy in the choir in the small rural church in Mount Vernon that he attended with his family.
He began writing songs and playing guitar as a teenager going to high school during the legendary 1950âs Country rockabilly era and the dawning of Rock ân Roll when Elvis took the world stage by storm with his hit, "Heartbreak Hotel".
Living now in Paris, known as the prettiest little town in Ontario only a few short miles from where he was born and grew up, Neil found it the perfect place to embark on his life-long dream to record an album of his original material and to begin writing his long-postponed novel.
Neilâs debut album "No Looking Back" released in August 2007 resulted in two songs â "The Cowboy Song" and "The Restless Wind" reaching # 1 on the IAC Music Country chart and # 1 on the CASHBOX Magazine Country Chart. Two other songs â "All Through The Night" and "Thereâs Just The One And Only You" reached # 1 on the IAC Music Easy Listening/Soft Rock chart.
Glen Streimer, President of Music Canada calls Neil âCanadaâs cross between Johnny Cash and Willie Nelsonâ.
From tumbleweeds drifting along old Route 66 and flashy 1950âs convertibles to rusted-out flatbed trucks and walking down railway tracks, it is hard not to picture Johnny Cash here. Even more so with Neil's self-effacing western lilt and a soft southern drawl influenced in part during his teens while toiling in summer sun-baked Southern Ontario tobacco fields alongside his co-workers from the Carolinaâs and Georgia.
Neil was honored to be named as one of the âawesome Indiesâ artists on the front cover of the July 1, 2007 Cashbox Magazine, and at the 2008 IAIA (International Academy of Independent Artists Golden Kayak Awards Neil received the Golden Kayak Award for Best Country Song 2007 - "The Cowboy Song".
At the 2008 Hamilton Music Awards Nominee, Neil was a nominee for New Country Recording of the Year for his debut album "No Looking Back".
The multi-talented line-up of musicians in the The Legendary Bear Creek Band on Neil's debut album titled "No Looking Back" included Juno nominee and international recording artist Ray Lyell on acoustic and bass guitar, keyboard, harmonica and backing vocals, Gary Borden on lead guitar, Ken Baird on piano, Steve Petrie on pedal steel guitar and fiddle, and vocalist Paula Tessaro joining Neil on lead vocals on the track "You Just Turned My Life Around".
The album was co-produced by Neil and Ray Lyell. It was arranged, engineered and mixed by Ray Lyell, recorded at Rayne Records in Hamilton Ontario and mastered at Grant Avenue Studio also in Hamilton.
Joining The Legendary Bear Creek Band in the studio on Neil's second album âWhat Difference Will It Makeâ recently completed and recorded at Rayne Records and soon to be released is Roger Banks on drums and Mike DeBenedictis on bass guitar.
