Got back on Ontario soil about a week ago now, had a pretty wild time up in the northwest of North America. We camped at the foot of Kluane National Park, fished with grizzly bears in Alaska, hiked amazing mountains in British Columbia, trekked to the snow-covered peaks of the Yukon. Just a great experience all-in-all :)
That said, it has been a rough couple in music as we have lost two of the greatest (in my humble opinion) songwriters that have graced this planet of ours. Tom Petty and Gord Downie. Both legends in their own right. Tom provided much of the soundtrack to my journey through the Rocky Mountains as we drove the entire Haines loop. From Whitehorse to Haines Junction to Haines to Skagway to Carcoss and back to Whitehorse. Every turn providing a view impossibly more picturesque than the previous.
Always great to go away, always great to get back home too. I predict lots of Petty and Tragically Hip songs making their way into the setlist in the shows ahead...
As of September 1, The Ghost of Buck Hill is now available on all digital platforms, including iTunes and Spotify!
Id like to first thank everyone who listened to the song and watched the video on YouTube, but a special HUGE thanks to those who purchased the tune on Bandcamp! It was certainly a unique way to go about a release, and I definitely learned some things during this process. Additionally, Id like to give a shout out to the Christie Lake Kids, the amazing charity with whom I partnered for this campaign, I look forward to tallying the revenue (shouldn't take long lol) and handing over a chunk of cash to them!
So for all you iTunes-ers, CLICK HERE to grab the tune!
For all you Spotify-ers, would be amazing if you threw the song on a playlist for the fall :)
The video has been posted on YouTube! It seems Bandcamp is having some trouble right now getting my page up-and-running, so please note that the only way to purchase the tune (as of right now), is by clicking on 'buy' on the Bandcamp widget above, or on the Music page!
Update: As of 430pm, you are now able to find my profile through Bandcamp!
