ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
“Really Small Town” the debut single from One Eyed Oracle of Oshawa, (Greater Toronto) Ontario CANADA,

Think Bob Marley and Bob Dylan meet Paul McCartney and John Lennon at Drake's house.

Co-Produced with multi gold record engineer and producer Jeff McCulloch of Wellesley Sound, (Dirty Dancing, Celine Dion, Shania Twain), and orchestration by poet multi-instrumentalist Tom Gannon Hamilton (El Marillo), w/ Matt O’Rourke on percussion (Jack DeKeyser, Chris Barclay), Backing vocals by Kalask and Tom Hamilton, and bass, acoustic guitar, lead vocals, written, arranged, edited, produced by Boris Rene Buhot, (United Truce) Socan, Ascap.

“Really Small Town,“ is a melodic, reggae grooved, alternative folk-rap song measuring in at 3min:53sec. Boris (Slavic for warrior) is a long time alt-grunge-indie Canadian musician songwriter with influences from the Beatles to Hot House Flowers, who has been prompted to respond when hearing the news of Bayer’s offer to purchase the Monsanto seed company. Struggling to come to grips with his own conflict of interest, chronic leukemia, Boris started with the simple line “my doctors the mortician.” During this three-year project, Toronto became a magnet that brought together the talent pool as Boris performed this song at venues across the greater Toronto area. Tom Hamilton, witness to the atrocities in El Salvadore during the 80’s who lost his wife Rhena Lee Hymovitch, the national coordinator of the humanitarian aid organization, Salvaide, due to a suspicious drowning accident outside of La Libertad on May 18th, 1988, heard the song and connected in ways too profound to articulate. Tom came, into the studio for 1.5 hours, then he went, and I spent the summer of 2018 editing his brilliant work. Kalask came to the project when I was about to record my final vocals, we shared a few hours together in the garden outside the studio, raised some smoke signals, and then proceeded to record vocals. It’s that spontaneity, and purpose that has fashioned this song into what it is today.

Boris’ last work 1041, (10 songs and exactly 41 minutes as foretold in a dream) released under United Truce, was played across North America from KALX to CHMR, and “All I Am,” charted briefly at University of Toronto’s CIUT. At this time, Really Small Town foreshadows the coming of a full-length album by One Eyed Oracle scheduled for a summer 2019 release, 10 years later, and All I Am is being re-worked to personify that connection.
