David Francey’s new CD is here!


Right of passage is David Francey’s much anticipated, all new, all original material CD. The first since Waking Hour in 2004. An exquisite new CD!

Join us for the CD release party at Hugh’s Room in Toronto, March 2 and 3

Right of Passage is an intimate recording of thirteen original David Francey songs, backed by a stellar cast of musicians. Craig Werth, Geoff Somers, Shane Simpson and Julia Davie joined David at Signal Path Studio in the beautiful town of Almonte, Ontario. The time spent in the studio was joyful. The sessions were filled with excitement as the new songs were captured one by one.
Right of Passage reflects the passion and emotion with which David views his world – a world where he and his pal “laughed [their] words in steady streams”, where he dreamt of his wife while sitting “under a sky of hodden grey” and where a smile “filled the emptiness”.
We are very proud that Right of Passage is truly home-made. The songs and music are by David. Many of the practices took place in our home. The recording was done less than an hour from our home. Our daughter Julia is singing harmony on two songs. Our daughter Amy did a beautiful job on the artwork for the CD. Our son Colin was extremely patient through the whole process. Many of the photos are by David or myself (Beth)…and the CD is on our label, Laker Music, run out of our home! How’s that for an indie label! Made in Canada!

You can order your copy directly from us online at Laker Music. Liner notes and more available for Right of Passage

  1. Great album by a great artist I only discovered in 2006 with “Waking Hour” (recommanded by my friend Herve – http://www.acousticinparis.com). Good CD’s are hard to find here in France so I downloaded “Right of Passage” through eMusic, like I did with the 6 other albums by David.

  2. I attended one of David’s shows just nights ago at the Ship Inn pub on Duckworth Street, St. John’s, NL. My wife and I made the four and a half hour trip to hear him play and I cannot describe how perfect the evening was. While David performed a number of songs from past albums the focus was on Right of Passage and what a title for such passionately written songs. Those in attendance were wooed by one of Canada’s foremost singer/songwriters. Not since Stan Rogers have I heard anyone write the stories we wish we all could about the average and not so average all across Canada, the US and the globe. After purchasing all of David’s albums I have to say that this recent project has to be one of the best. If you haven’t picked it up yet I urge you to do it soon. I look forward to more work and more performances. Thanks!!
