"Thought of maybe quitting... thought of leaving it behind" While on tour sometime last year we pulled through Leeroy Stagger's studio just a little after 9am following a show in Lethbridge, Alberta... and decided upon paying tribute to one of our icons. We played an intimate version of The Tragically Hip's 'Bobcaygeon' originally aired on Leeroy's awesome Dirty Windshields radio show on CKUA..... and you can now hear it here. You're lighting us all up today Gord. Thank You. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-Za__9hMwxw&feature=youtu.be

We’re doubling up today ahead of our newest release tomorrow. It’s a cover song, any guesses??? #1 on our top 10 favourite covers list is here!! Masterfully written & recorded by Prince, made insanely famous worldwide by Sinead and perfectly delivered by Chris Cornell, Nothing Compares 2 U is at #1 on our covers list. It’s a monster of a song and this Cornell version is just perfect https://youtu.be/IuUDRU9-HRk
In 2003 Johnny Cash covered Hurt on the 4th instalment of his American Recordings sessions with Rick Rubin. The result is maybe the best version of the saddest song in the world. Cash managed to turn an incredibly powerful Trent Reznor song into a stripped down masterpiece. Trent’s reaction? “that song isn't mine anymore” There isn’t a better compliment.
Song #5 on our top 10 Covers list: With a little Help from my Friends Joe Cocker tackling the task of covering the Beatles & absolutely slaying it. Lazy did this one at a @MilkyRiverBand gig last year. Maybe we can convince him to do it more often... https://youtu.be/CP26UahQsLQ
#8 on our top 10 list of favourite covers is Bowie’s Heroes done by the Wallflowers. A lot of music royalty colliding on this one including some pretty incredible production from TBone Burnett. It’s Bold to tackle Bowie, but this is a pretty killer cover! https://youtu.be/O18bslNM9mE

Today is BELL LET’S TALK Day, an annual reminder that any day is a good day to talk about mental health, break down the negative stigma, or reach out and talk to someone. We proudly spent 4 years touring in support of the B.C. Schizophrenia Society and their REACH OUT program, meeting people from all walks of life who have struggled at one point or another. Some of us have had our experiences too, and once you start talking about it, you realize you’re not alone. #BellLetsTalk
Hard to believe that this song came out 6 years ago... Not every music video holds up over the years but we think this one has aged just fine. What do you think? https://youtu.be/gb0ODxzKGHQ
