Charmed, I’m sure.
Being my third album of original Blues, it’s obvious I live a charmed life. Take these three kids. When I just happened to take their picture in Cabbagetown over forty years ago, I had been here for about three weeks – and it was only my third trip here, ever.
These kids gave me everything I’ve ever needed to remember about myself and Toronto. Be confident, playful, and charming … and don’t give much of a damn about what people think of you – particularly those who don’t know you. Toronto knows me. Why else would it have been so generous to me? This is where I got the chance to become a storyteller.
Storytelling is what music is to me – particularly the story of how the Blues, born of such brutally imposed misery, created a legacy of such enduring beauty. This album, like all my music, honours that legacy by creating modern Blues for the here and now.
