LEE PALMER 2014
A follow up to my 2013 release, One Take, Live at Canterbury, this album is more of an acoustic production. Of the 10 tracks recorded all were penned by myself in the fall of 2013 excluding “Changed man “, which was written some 20 years earlier.
The album “60 Clicks” is a live recording that utilized some of Canada’s great roots musicians. The name of the album came from a high school classmate and member of my first band. He passed away in October and the song “60 Clicks” tells the story he told me.
This album is a collection of stories put to song that reflect my journey thus far. “Parents’ child” is a message that I hope my kids, your kids and parents in general can relate to. “Wrong not to write” is a bit of tribute to song writer great, Steve Goodman.
I’ve always written and performed a mix of country and blues. I’m not really in either wheelhouse totally and like other performers who have blurred the lines between the two genres, I’m happy to join their ranks.
This album is dedicated to: my younger sister Jill who passed away days before this recording; my old friend Bill Smith who inspired the song “60 Clicks”; my children Tom and Kat who inspired the song “Parents’ child”; my good friend Elmer Ferrer who inspired the song “Together we roll” and whose continued support has made my musical reboot possible.BUY NOW
