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.
