Album Release!

Album Cover for CD Baby

Almost a year in the making, my first album Westbound was released October 25th, 2014 at the Top Knight Pub in Yellowknife.  Huge thanks to everyone for the support – the house was packed! I think lots of fun was had by all.  Shout out to the Old Town Sound (Andrea Bettger Fiddle, Jeff Dineley Bass, Devin Lake Drums, and Don Mackay Mandolin), they were great! Also to Special Guests Becky Davis, Anthony Foliot, Chris Pyke and Wade Carpenter.

The album was produced, engineered and mixed by Adrian Dolan.  Mastered by David Travers-Smith at found sound toronto.  Recorded at Erickson Sound Labs in Buellton, California.  Album artwork and design is by Katie O’Beirne.

It features my brother, Darcy McCord, on Cello, Percussion and Vocals; Ben Russo on Mandolin and Vocals; Adrian Dolan on Violin, Viola, Accordion, and Vocals; and Bear Erickson on Electric Guitar.

The ice saw was recorded by Janna Graham on Great Slave Lake, an hour before the flight to California.  Want to know more about cutting ice? Check it out on Fran Hurcomb’s blog.

The whole project was made possible by the generous support of the NWT Arts Council.

If you’d like to buy the album online, it’s available here.
