When I left Nashville on the move back to Alberta with my family, before I started at CISN fm doing the drive home show. I worked for a few months in Ft. MacMurray in the Oil field as a welders helper. I tell you there are some things I am good at but running a tiger torch is not one of them! On my first day I burned off my welders eyebrows! I was living in camp working 13 on and 2 off getting on the crew bus at 6 am every morning and heading into the mines to work my 12 hr shifts. It wasn’t the first time I had to go back to work while being in the music business. This career is no joke and it has it’s WAY ups and it’s WAY downs and when you have a family to support everything comes second to taking care of them. So away I went to work in the mines! While I was working away grinding pipe I had a lot of time to think about my life and the choices that I had made this far down the road. As I was working away I had whats called a sky song! Thats when a song will kinda falls outta the sky into your lap. I wrote this on a note pad I had tucked into my coveralls while standing over a pipe! It’s Called “Victim of my own Compromise” featuring the amazing Garth Hudson of The Band on accordion. And it’s a reminder to never give up, never give in and never compromise what you believe in!
