Facebook Fan Page

Born July 2nd in Guelph, Ontario, Canada a.k.a. The Royal City. Addiction to music from a young age would lead to a love of dance, choir, stage musicals and acoustic guitar. Like most kids growing up in the 80's and 90's, music was in an explosion phase with seemingly new genres every year. An early love of Folk and Pop lead to a Rap and Punk phase but Red Lion always appreciated a good rhythm, solid bass and a story in his music. An avid supporter of Canadian Hockey and NCAA Division 1 Basketball. His two favourite teams are the Chapel Hill North Carolina Tarheels where he lived as a young lad and his new home in Toronto were it's almost mandatory to root for the NHL's Maple Leafs.

Started spinning Jungle in 1998 as a then student of DJ's King Pin, Leroy Brown and Quartz who later, along with Red Lion, formed the Royal City Jungle Alliance or ROCJA. Also in 1998 he began working (alongside some close friends) for Toronto's Lifeforce Industries. Aiding in the promotion and production of such legendary Toronto events as Connected, Freakin', Bittersweet, W.E.M.F. Lifeforce Fridays, Turbo Fridays, I-Dance and of course the Dose and Syrous Anniversary parties.

Over the years Red Lion has opened for legends of the scene such as Andy C, DJ Hype, Doc Scott, Aphrodite, Ed Rush & Optical & Jumping Jack Frost to name a few. A regular at the World Electronic Music Festival (WEMF) since 1999 as well as the infamous Harvest Festival in Ontario at the end of each summer. You can catch him gracing the decks in Toronto clubs, on the beaches and at the numerous festivals in and around the city.

Jungle, Drum and Bass is a true passion which has blossomed over the last decade of his life and he looks forward to being involved in any capacity as the music and the movement in Canada continues to grow.

DJ'ing on rotation weekly in Toronto Ontario. Shouts out to the Lifeforce Family, Syrous, Renegade's, Dose, Promise, Highgrade, Destiny, Junglist Movement and Numba 3 Crews. Thanks to all for all the continued support over the years!
