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!
