a little time

by Roy Hickling

My songwriting is lyric-driven, progressive folk music anchored by inventive guitar playing. I write on a wide variety of topics with the goal of producing songs that are purposeful, fun and interesting (although not necessarily all at the same time).

Portions of this CD were recorded at the homes and/or studios of nearly everyone who played on it. The bulk of my portion was recorded in a beautiful, creaky, old Orange Lodge built in 1894, with jail cells and a well in the basement and raccoons in the attic. Ray & I moved in for several days at a time and both worked and relaxed when it suited us. The ambience and acoustics made a definite contribution - thanks to Mark Abbott.

Don Bray – baritone slide guitar
Don Cameron – mandolin
Ray Dillard - percussion
Max Dyer – bass, cello

Don’t get me wrong – I’m very proud of my contributions to this CD, but I must say that it would be a shadow of what it is without the people listed above. Their professionalism, generosity and sheer brilliance have enriched me personally and elevated my work. I am eternally grateful. Thanks to Doug for his additional work at his studio and for making the B3 talk. To Lorrie & Ray’s long-time friend Max, thanks for sending such staggeringly exquisite tracks from Texas. Thanks to Don B for being such a great friend and for placing Culloden so firmly on the battlefield. Thanks to Don C for adding so thoughtfully to the colour palette and to the beautiful Alyssa for adding a little harmony to my record.

There isn’t a title under credits that begins to adequately describe the role that my friend and brother-in-law Ray Dillard has played in developing this project. Here are some additions to his list – constructive critic, educator, supporter, collaborator, cheer leader, patient mentor and when the time was right - focused taskmaster. His exceptional talents in the studio and as a percussionist are truly world class, and his boundless enthusiasm continues to amaze me.

Thanks to the local musical community – the Barrie Folk Society, the operators of various open stages and especially to my friends at BaDAS/S whose talents, listening skills and stubborn opinions contribute to my process - even when they’re wrong!
Thanks to Chris for her great design work, her long-time support of my music and art and her wonderful sense of humour.
Thanks to Terry for listening closely to my newest song, looking through all of my art work, reading what I write about it and then applying a finely tuned bs-meter.

Over the past several years I have transitioned from farmer/seed salesman to singer songwriter, painter, sculptor and farmer. Thanks to my family and friends for their support and encouragement in these new directions.
I especially want to thank my wife Sue and daughter Lydia for actively participating on the front line of the changes in my life; for fully understanding the value of time spent creatively and for their unflagging support – even when the next song is circling in my brain and I only hear every third word that is spoken to me.
