Check It Out Now
Riding To St. Ives is the first song to be released from the new album Place & Time. Listen to the track now and read a bit about the album below. And remember, you can check out Bandcamp to find out how order the album as a CD or as a digital download.
On February 23rd and 24th I will be holding CD Release Concerts at the Royal Theatre Thousand Islands in Gananoque. Stay tuned to hear about more live performances.
With the release of this new album I worked hard to offer my trademark: songs that engage your mind and relax your soul. In the song, A Matter Of Time, I sing, “I love to tell the story and I sure do love to set the scene” and I hope that I deliver on that promise.
The album journey begins with the striking Canadian references of Children of Dreamers and then leads us, as we hear in the final song Declare My Love, “all around this great big world”. I intended the lyrics to fill the songs with characters, events, and observations that draw you close and that you connect to them. I meant for both place and time to run through this collection like a thread through a string of pearls.
Place & Time was produced and engineered by Canadian Roots Music icon David Essig who plays a featured instrumental role on the album. David and I became close friends after sharing the stage and decided in 2017 to create a recording with a “live” feel. The dynamic of vocals and guitar recorded with no overdubs, coupled with David’s brilliant ability to capture and enhance the authenticity of each performance, resulted in what I consider to be an album of remarkable warmth and sensitivity.
Join me in the thoughtful conversations of Place & Time.
