In 1983 a young gay musician called David Ramsden moved to Toronto from small town Ontario to seek fame and fortune. Sure, he faced the inevitable hardships and disappointments but, by 1990, Ramsden had become a one-man musical force.
His jazz and standards concert series Quiet, Please! There's A Lady on Stage - where he acted as creator, host, accompanist and vocalist, ushered in what promised to be a career of super stardom.
After a few frustrating years in the music business, Ramsden took time out to concentrate on a successful acting career and a more secure livelihood as a mental health worker.
More than 17 years after that fateful bus ride to Toronto - and numerous grant applications and loans later - comes The Rhythm Of The Lonely Road, a debut CD with 10 original songs by Ramsden.
