Since then he has released three EPs, "Little Pictures" (1995), "City Route 85" (2009), and "Provincial Road 222" (2010). He is also releasing a new album on January 24, 2012 called "Provincial", featuring more songs about life in small town Canada similar to his "City Route 85" and "Provincial Road 222" releases.
