I’ve been traveling around the world for a long time, finding songs in my head like snapshots of how I feel about what I see and the people I meet. I’ve had the blues now and then, but I’ve had all the other colors too; what’s remained consistent is my conclusion, which has always inspired my songs, that life is precious, diverse and worth protecting.
Power in the Blood is my new album – I wrote all but two songs – which I recorded in Toronto with three different producers, who each made choices from my list of songs. There are 4 love songs, 3 social criticisms, 1 blues rocker, 2 songs positive-uppers, 1 campfire song, and a reboot of the title song off my first album, It’s My Way!
I want to send out huge thank you to my manager, Gilles Paquin, and to Geoff Kulawick of True North Records, for putting me in touch and supporting my work with the three producers: Michael Wojewoda, Chris Birkett and Jon Levine.
While each producer recorded with me separately bringing their respective arsenal of unique musicians, we collaborated on completing the album, with Michael doing the final mixes to bring together our various styles. For me, the experience was quite wonderful!
My own fabulous drummer from our touring band, Mike Bruyere (Muniidobenese), plays on “Not the Lovin Kind” and “Sing Our Own Song.” ~ Buffy
