‘You, Me and The Horse’ 10th anniversary sale + previously unreleased outtake / Jerry & Kyle duo tour kicks off tomorrow!
Well, 10 years sure does fly by. My 3rd album, ‘You, Me and The Horse’ produced by Josh Finlayson (of Skydiggers) and Tim Bovaconti was released October 7th, 2008. Recorded when I was 22 and released when I was 23, the sound we were going for was originally inspired by the production of Gordon Lightfoot’s 60’s United Artist records that I love. Josh and I both loved those albums and wanted to make a very full sounding album while keeping it mainly acoustic. Tim Bovaconti also brought his valuable ear, music sensibilities and fantastic playing to the sessions and album. This would be the album I was touring when I first went into the States, when I played CBC Radio’s Q and most importantly when I found my own voice and sound.
To help celebrate, we’ve released an outtake from the sessions, “Beating The Storm” and the whole album will be available on Bandcamp at a special anniversary low price for the rest of October!
Links are below plus a review and Q & A from Exclaim! around the time ‘You, Me and The Horse’ came out.
