Gern f. Vlchek


Gern f. Vlchek has explored Canada coast to coast, first as a long-haul truck driver, then as frontman for the United Steel Workers of Montreal. After years of hard driving and hard playing, he has a lot to say about Canada, its people, its musical experience, and just about every town that dots our national main street, the Trans-Canada Highway.

A longtime fixture of the Montreal music scene—as musician, songwriter, storyteller, producer, sound engineer, talent developer, gig booker, and bartender—Gern f. now brings his hard truths and tall tales from the stage to the page, with Turn Right, Turn Left, Repeat, his first book. He lives in Montreal with his wee family, and has successfully quit smoking.
