ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
'To Build a Fire' is an album of leaving and new beginnings- not because anything is so bad perhaps but because things can always be better. If there is a chance, you have to look. Cam had recently escaped the city to live in his new dwelling in the mountains with his sweetheart and new daughter- new start, new challenges. Ideas were trusted and built upon quickly, the unfamiliar was used as confidently as the familiar, pushing the conventions of what can still be called folk music back to where it should be- immediate and honest.

With verses still to be written and arrangements still unknown one mic was placed in the room then the stomping on
floorboards. The opening words spilled into the microphone, "I've got to know that you'll make it through the night, make it through the day, that you'll make it out alive, that you'll always have water running down the mountain side, always have
shelter, know to build a fire." Eight days in a cabin in the woods.

Cam Penner finds new textures and bolder sounds on his fifth release. The fractured rootsy persona still creeps in but this is not a depressing album. ʻTo Build a Fireʼ is full of hope. It's full of love. It's electrifying and provoking. It is a rallying call that reaches out, boldly and courageously into present-day existence. It's full of everything we should be looking for, not only musically, but in life.

The lush beauty of the opening brass track lures you in but leaves you wondering what is to come...then it begins.
Ukuleles, guitars, banjos strummed. Floorboards stomped. Kick drums kicked. Feet stumbled. Thighs, knees, hands
slapped and clapped. Voices strained and bent. Fingers gripped, grabbed and picked. Arms and hands flung. Body and
sound thrown against wood and metal.

There are moments that will surprise and amaze even the most devoted Cam Penner fan. The symphony of sound and
lyricism showcase the inevitable evolution of a growing artist; this album is a new start. ʻTo Build a Fireʼ speaks to the
world. Itʼs folk. Itʼs rock nʼ roll. Itʼs Cam Penner. Breathing fire into every note and lyric.
