And at a year and a half into RBT | NE, we're beginning to gain some momentum as our songs find their way to the airwaves (June Garber "Underneath the Jacaranda Tree" and "Unbroken") and early breakout singles (Carlos Morgan "Have A Little Faith") to online (Mikalyn Hay "Anyway" and Kelly Heeley "In Over My Head"), to possible adopters placing holds on songs from our catalogue (Didn't I; What Are We Fighting For; Talk Like That; Look Up; Live Like That). It's also great to see the videos North has been pulling together for some of the artists we're working with.
North and I are extremely lucky to spend so much of our time consumed in the creative energy of songwriting and music. And although we both regularly burn our candles on all sides, the crazy-of-it-all is good. It's also been busy on the performance side of the things for North with his new solo album "One of the Lucky Ones". Piling his family into his van this summer, North set out across Canada on his annual trip to BC, however this year there were numerous stops along the way with North doing an early release tour - the official cd release is October 15th in Ottawa. The album has a few RBT | NE songs that made the cut, lol - "TURN" which was North and my first co-write 2 -1/2 years ago; "LOVE LIKE THAT" an ISC finalist placing top 200 out of 18,500 songs in the 2015 International Songwriting Competition; and "LIVING OUT LOUD" a no holds barred song that explicitly tells you just how that's done, and features the stellar harmonica playing of Toronto legend Jerome Godboo.
We've had a full and fantastic year so far, with many new opportunities ahead of us. All the while we've been happily converting artists into great friends along the way, falling into the comfort of familiarity and writing song after song with them. We're also doing more full on song production for artists with our talented producer Johnny Simmen on board.
We are in awe of the talent that is standing in the wings waiting for their time. All good here :)
