I had the opportunity to record a few songs with Marc Atkinson at his studio on Hornby Island recently. These were just live-off-the-floor takes of the two of us without any extra “stuff” like overdubs.
“Wind and Bones” is about a trip I made to Newfoundland many years ago with one of its goals being to find the grave sites of various ancestors. I was successful and it got me to thinking abou their lives and what they thought the future would hold.
It’s really been the journey in much of my writing which looks at themes of place and the motivations of people to move and go where they do.
