Click here to watch this video by Karen Herriot which was recorded during Blue Dirt Girl’s Via Rail Cross Canada, Artist on Board, Tour April 2019.
Big Open Sky Studio recording is track #8 on my Crazy Beautiful album. Click here to purchase/listen to the single or the album.
A girl split in two between where she is and where she would like to be.
An ode to Saskatchewan plain and simple.
I was looking for instrumental sounds to replicate: prairie recording of snow geese, the sizzling summer heat and buzz of mosquitoes and brilliant summer thunderstorm sounds. Albert, Simon and Jason took this idea and gracefully, delicately created the music for Kathryn to add her vocals. Kathryn on lead vocals, Simon on guitar and keys. Another late night Simon session with beautiful results along with Albert on his beautiful handmade mandolin and Jason on bull roar, cymbals and drums.
