- Christine Bougie/Dafydd Hughes
- It Will Record
Dafydd Hughes and I have been making music together for a decade now. We both grew up in St. Catharines, Ontario, but we didn’t actually meet until we were both living in Toronto.
Our mutual friend, Steve Zsirai, kept saying to me “you guys have to play together…you’re the same!” And when we finally got together to play some music, it was obvious. I had found the missing half of my musical brain.
I can’t even count how many times we’ve played the exact same thing at the exact same time. It’s an effortless collaboration.
In 2008 we recorded an album (produced by Dean Drouillard) together called This Is Awesome. I really love that one. We’d been playing as a duo every Monday night at The Tranzac, only imagining how other instruments would fill out the songs. And then we made that happen by overdubbing more instruments all over that record.
This time, though, we wanted to put down to tape the sound that we’d honed as a duo all these years. Literally, to tape.
Josh Van Tassel really instigated the recording of this album. He contacted the both of us and said “I have a tape machine. Let’s record for two days…no overdubs.”
Here it is! You can listen to/buy It Will Record right here.
Hope you like it.
