Dave McCann has locked himself firmly into hearts and minds of the Alberta music scene as one of the best untold singer-songwriters working in contemporary roots music.
His newest effort “Westbound ’til Light” is no exception. This is an unyielding collection of songs – story songs, train songs, disaster songs, and message songs – all informed by some aspect of North American folklore. It’s definitive roots music, steeped in Dave’s unique vision and story based narrative.
The project was recorded in a series of isolated sessions over the period of a year in Nanton, Alberta with producer and audio ace Steve Loree (Ian Tyson, Corb Lund, Jr Gone Wild). It features the new and longtime members of Dave’s band the Firehearts, solo captures, as well as contributions by Peterborough, Ontario’s Mayhemingways.
