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...



So Im playing Marvest this weekend, which is an offshoot of Ottawa's CityFolk Festival!

You can see me at LINDT CHOCOLATE SHOP @ 2:30PM and then again at CRAFT BEER MARKET @ 3:15.

Note that these are only half-hour shows, so make sure you get there on time! I'll be debuting a couple new songs so things might get interesting!

Come on out!

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 :)

Just some details about tomorrow's release:

~ The video will go up on the Liam Lloyd YouTube Channel at noon, 12:00pm, on Thursday, July 20

~ The song will be available for purchase *EXCLUSIVELY* on Bandcamp for just one dollar during this initiative

~ Bandcamp keeps a much smaller % of sales than iTunes, which will hopefully maximize the amount of money raised for the amazing charity I am working with, The Christie Lake Kids, and help me recoup some (hopefully all...?) of my costs as well

~ Bandcamp also gives you the option to pay more for the song (which includes unlimited streaming via the free Bandcamp app, plus high-quality download in MP3, FLAC and more), should you be feeling extra charitable on the day of your purchase.

~ I have pledged to donate 50% of every dollar I see to the Christie Lake Kids for 6 weeks after the release...until August 31st at midnight, so why not just get your purchase out of the way right off the bat :)

So excited to see how this goes!!

Thanks everyone :)
