New single available on iTunes

Fire Single Cover

I’m pleased to announce the release of my first single entitled “Fire”. It is now available for download on iTunes and and CD Baby (where 99% of the sales revenue goes directly towards the artists) amongst various other online music stores. An excerpt of the song was featured in a video to raise money for a local non-profit group which supports local artists and eco-friendly living. Half the proceeds of the single will go towards the same non-profit group. The song can be previewed and downloaded here for $0.99.

I wrote the music of the song for a client for whom I’ve written 12 songs so far (we are in the midst of recording an album featuring the 10 best tunes of that bunch). I did the music myself and recorded the vocals at Tone King Records in Cardinal, ON. The song features vocals from Caroline Addison of River City Junction, Brockville guitarist/singer/songwriter Mark Bergman, Cardinal singer/songwriter Amanda Keeley, and yours truly of course.

We released a signed and numbered limited series on CD last Saturday at a local art show. We produced 50 copies and we’ve sold at least 40 so far (one of which was bought by our local MPP). As a bonus track the CD includes a vocal recording of an instrumental track used in the voiceover section of the same video entitled “This Can Be” (which we plan to release shortly as a single for digital distribution also, in collaboration with recording engineer extraordinaire Philip Shaw Bova). CDs are $5, half proceeds go towards same non-profit group. If you are interested in a copy please contact ASAP, they will not last long.

I’m also pleased to announce I’ll be doing a workshop on writing and producing music for the grade 9/10 music students at BCI on June 12, which will in part cover how the song Fire was created.

The lyrics of the song can be downloaded for free below:
