‘You, Me & The Horse’ released 7 years ago this month!
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
or on iTunes: https://itunes.apple.com/ca/album/you-me-and-the-horse/id294581344
