ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
In 1990, I recorded “Dreams of the Highway“ with producer Roy Forbes in North Vancouver, BC. It was a great experience working with someone I truly admired. We both loved good songwriting and had a Northern BC connection. I still treasure my time with Roy aka “bim”.

29 years later we are putting together this collection of songs from 10 albums. It was difficult to choose for me. I still play songs from the first recording at live shows today.

Songwriting is a funny thing. Different people can have opposite reactions to the same song. The Northwest landscape and its wonderful people are in these songs and they are a good part of who I am. You just don’t hear “Dad bought the Bel Air up in Telegraph Creek, for 2 cords of wood and 24 beer” too often. Pretty pricey car eh...?

This collection also includes a new version of “Queen of the North”. I still perform in Prince Rupert, BC quite often and have met people who worked on the “Queen” that fateful night. Playing that song, there – goose-bumps happen.

I’ve worked with so many terrific musicians, producers and engineers… So many good people. Some of them are credited and maybe a few are featured live in these songs. My wife Jane and our kids, mip (aka Marie) and Matthew have always had my back. Love and thanks! Hans Saefkow, Jordy Walker, have been through so much with me… the list goes on.

The album cover is a Mark Tworow painting. I saw it and it spoke to me. I think it projects something about the simple and quiet feel of this area...

We are not including songs from “Right Here” my most recent album, on this collection. I am also planning yet another album, maybe even this Fall. Crazy eh! Executive producer, Sandra Smith has been an incredible connection for me. Thanks so much to the people of Northwest BC and other cool places, from New Jersey, Switzerland and California, who like what I do.

Honoured!! mp
