“On Your Own” from my 2nd album ‘Farewell Ghost Town’ (2006) has been floating around in my head lately. Eerie to have some of these words that I wrote when I was 20 or 21 be so relevant during these times. Here’s a clip of me from the apartment playing it today, a rainy Sunday afternoon. I’ve fallen in love with this song again, haven’t played it in years and years. You can watch it here: https://youtu.be/rB3yUyRkvX4
‘Farewell Ghost Town’ was produced by Don Kerr and Tim Bovaconti, recorded mostly on Toronto Island at The Gas Station and a little bit at Don’s home studio The Rooster. It’s been long out of print but is available digitally and on streaming platforms. Would love to re-release it on vinyl someday. I have real fond memories making this album and starting to find my identity as an artist. It’s one of my favourite albums I’ve made and after revisiting it I think it’s aging quite nicely.
