Talkin’ ‘Bout Love – OUT NOW!

We are so pleased to announce that our brand new Blues recording TALKIN’ ‘Bout Love is now released and is available for purchase.

The pandemic hit and we both realised that we had to stay creative if we were to keep from going stir crazy, so we decided to write and record a few Blues songs together. One big hurdle was that my Dad and I were not only isolated by a pandemic, but also the Atlantic ocean!  We began sending ‘musical sketches’ back and forth by text and email, working on them till we came up with a song.  We then used the same process to record them, each adding layers over the internet till we came up with a finished recording. Over the course of a year, we wrote and recorded 14 songs together. It became even more of a family affair when some of my kids contributed their talents to the record and also my brother Gary.

I Found Love – The opening track of the album.

Juno award winner Kenny ‘Blues Boss’ Wayne played some boogie-woogie piano on a tune for us, and the multi-talented Brett ‘Grit’ Ziegler also played piano and organ on others which added so much colour.  Indigenous award-winning artist Cheryl Bear brought her soul to one of the songs and our dear friend Shamma Sabir played some tasty fiddle on a few. We were blessed to have Master sound engineer Rick Colhoun mix it for us in Vancouver, and multi-award-winning Jamie Sitar from Winnipeg mastered it.

The whole story would take us a long time to tell, but for now, we will let the music speak for its self. It has been a long road with many challenges but we are so proud to now be able to release our Blues record aptly titled “TALKIN’ ‘BOUT LOVE”. To purchase your copy CLICK HERE. 

TALKIN’ ‘BOUT LOVE – NEW BLUES RECORD

What started as a project to keep father and son musicians sane in the COVID19 pandemic has now turned into something worthy to be shared with the world!

UK radio’s ‘best album of the year’ award recipient Dane Stevens lives in the UK and fell into the age demographic that had an enforced ‘stay at home’ lockdown. His son Graham Ord lives in Canada, 5000 miles away, where all gigs were cancelled. To keep musically active and to keep from going stir crazy they decided to write and record some new songs together across the internet.

“We started by sending our ideas recorded on our phones back and forth, and from those, we forged these brand new songs and recorded them in our respective home studios. By sending tracks back and forth across two continents we have now crafted an awesome new Blues record together over the internet”…….

‘The Light’ Featuring Aaron Ord.

A few weeks ago my Son Aaron and I were performing in Vernon BC and in the afternoon before the show we were given the opportunity of recording a few pieces ‘live off the floor’ at the wonderful Farmhouse Music Studio in town.
Check out their other video and sound production work at the link provided.
The song is called ‘The Light’ and was written by Emmylou Harris and Keiran Kane.
