Seven Billion

Last winter I took my first trip to Nashville. I scheduled a co-write with Jimmy Borja and Roger Beckett. In a few short hours we came up with this diddy. I hope you like it.

Every Single Christmas

Jimmy Borja whom I met on my trip to Nashville last March have stayed in touch. We try to write via skype from time to time. Late in October - he suggested a Xmas Song. I started humming to some melancholy chords and "Every Single Christmas" happened.

Up

Went to Nashville on my March Break with my best friend. It was our first trip. My dad drove us from Guelph. We had so much fun. One of the things I tried to do was play out as much as possible and do a bunch of co-writes - Up was one of them.

Murray Daigle and Bobby John and I sat in the studio and wrote the song together. Murray came up with the beat and Bobby and I started with the song idea and the lyric.

Antidote

I had popped into a session with Jimmy Borja a talented Nashville writer to record a song we had just written called 7 Billion. At the end of the session - I sat at the keyboard and came up with this chord progression. The words came quickly after that and within about 45 minutes I had this song done.

Cheap Canadian Whiskey

I was biking with my dad and saw a bottle by the side of the road - I remarked that it was half full, and my dad said that it was just "cheap canadian whiskey" The phrase stuck with me and I wrote a song around it about a friend that was doing some crazy stuff.

Titanic

A friend of mine was making some pretty bad choices - this is a song about watching it happen and knowing that the ending was inevitable.
