Steam the whole Del Fi's debut record, 'Crowd Pleaser' before it's released! The Del Fi's is a band I started that includes many members(some you might know…) and we create music without rehearsal or a conversation, just see what spontaneous rock n roll we can come up with. I wrote most of the tunes right before we went in to record this album live off the floor in 10 hours.A real fun record to make.
Follow the link, hope you enjoy! : http://exclaim.ca/music/article/del_fis-crowd_pleaser_album_stream

Was just thinking the other day about the album I made in 2008 and released around this time seven years ago called, 'You, Me & The Horse'. It was produced by co-founder of Skydiggers, Josh Finlayson and well respected Toronto musician Tim Bovaconti. This album was a fairly acoustic affair with it's initial inspiration being Gordon Lightfoot's 60's output on United Artists. I loved the sound of those early albums and the full sound he got from mainly acoustic instruments and arrangements. Of course, 'You, Me & The Horse' sounds nothing like them, we came up with own thing which is good.
You can still buy it on CD via our store: http://www.maplemusic.com/product.asp?dept_id=2926&pf_id=2925-03&lang=EN
