Welcome to DrOxide.com DR. OXIDE—Poet, Painter, Activist,
Singer-Songwriter


"Alternate Eclectic Country Rock—social, political, and environmental commentary with a hint of humour"

Dr. Oxide was born and raised in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada. It was his frequent visits to his grandfather’s farm that kept him in touch with his praire roots.

The Doctor has been writing songs for over three decades. Several of his songs have become rallying calls at various political and environmental benefits.

Doc has been writing songs since the seventies, several of which have become rallying calls at various political and environmental benefits. He played at one of the first international conferences on acid rain, and at many other environmental benefits including performances for protecting our oceans and whales from pollution, renouncing uranium mining, in support of sustainable agriculture, protesting pipeline expansions, and for protecting the Wild Horses of Suffield—Canada's largest herd of wild horses.

He is a past Director of Greenpeace, Alberta, Canada and strongly believes that there is no greater issue than the environment, our need to protect and enhance our habitat. It is time that we all become good stewards of our sacred planet earth.” Our planet needs you.
The time for action is now!

With his current release Black & White Doc continues to speak out about our environmental crisis, and other pressing issues such as violence against woman, GMO engineering, and provide his personal observations on everyday events.

And thanks for supporting indie musicMusic has been part of my life ever since I first performed on stage at age 8 – playing the accordion, an instrument I still love to this day. I have always looked at life through art. Writing lyrics, painting and sharing songs have become a passion. I like to tell stories that make us happy or sad, laugh or cry or make us stop and ponder just about everything or anything. That’s what I do. I hope some of my songs have struck a personal chord.

"Thanks for taking the time to listen!"
