For those of you sexy cats that have been kind enough to have joined me on my journey these past few years, you’ll know that I have a passion for the indie arts scene, especially here at home in Canada. And that I tend, when a musician touches my soul or makes me smile, to go on streaks of sharing their music. But most of all I beam with pride and shout it to the world, when I happen to know one of those musicians that touches my soul or makes me smile. Especially if I love and adore them as people. For a few of you that have been reading here or on Roamancing for awhile, you’ll be familiar with this quirk of mine with musicians such as Ross Neilsen, Chris Blake, and Jesse Roper. Some of you might even remember me writing about a fellow by the name of Doug Paisley.
It is Doug Paisley who I want to stand on the rooftops and shout about today! Have known and adored Doug since birth, but as often happens with childhood friends, you lose touch with what has become of each other. When I finally rediscovered Doug, it was through his music, and I could hardly believe that this talent who sings with the likes of Lesley Feist, was my childhood friend who I always use to get into trouble with.
Then a couple of weeks ago, there was Doug on one of my favourite CBC Radio Shows, the Q with Jian Ghomeshi! I was giddy with excitement, shouting out my pride to the dog, the cats, and anyone that would listen on my social media feeds! Here is a clip from the Show:
Proud to share that Doug’s third album, Strong Feelings, was released this past week!
Can hardly wait to get my paws on it! Or for the road trips that I am sure it will join me on, singing along with Doug as I drive! Purring at the thought!
