You may have heard a new song on the radio by now. The single is out this week and it is called Stone Faith.
It is one of 13 new tracks that is coming out on EMI Canada on June 12th called Fifteen.
So called as this is my 15th career record .
There are songwriting collaborations with Ron Sexsmith, Gordie Johnson, and Tom Wilson on this recording, as well as a few covers by the likes of John Lennon, Allen Toussaint, Peter Green, and Irish singer/songwriter Foy Vance.
This marks my 4th time working with producer Joe Hardy (ZZ Top, Steve Earle etc.).
Joe is an awesome human being and an excellent engineer/producer so it was great to be working with such a competent guy.
There is a mix of rock, funk, and soulful songs on this session , with an ace band at my side featuring veteran bass player James “Hutch” Hutchinson from Bonnie Raitt’s band as well as Nashville heavy weight drummer Greg Morrow rounding out the rhythm section.
My pal and long time collaborator Craig Northey played rhythm guitar and the Hammond organ was played by longtime CJ band member Eric Webster and Simon Kendall.
Guess that’s about it……. really hoping you like it and look forward to playing a city near you on the cross Canada tour in October/ November.
All the best,
