* Watch the preview of this album below.


Notes: This is a reissue of this 1968 psychedelic classic.
“Elyse” actually received much critical acclaim, and while not a commercial hit, the record sold fairly well, even prompting an appearance on Johnny Carson’s “Tonight Show”. Two more albums were recorded but never released. Included on this CD reissue are two songs from this era, one of which, “Houses”, features Neil Young wielding his distinctively ripping guitar sound.

Elyse got her start performing in Toronto alongside friends like Neil Young and Joni Mitchell. She later moved to LA where she recorded “Elyse”, and has since lived in London, New Mexico, and Ashland, Oregon where she currently lives.  She still writes and plans to record an album of new material in the near future.  Since, Elyse’s story has become something of a rock legend – after the rerelease her album received massive amount of positive feedback in the press, and she was mentioned in Magnet, Time Out NY, Aquarium Drunkard, Creative Loafing (amongst others). Perhaps the most flattering result was two extremely successful indie bands, Vetiver and Dinosaur Jr. decided to cover “Houses” in the aftermath of the re-release.

Notes: Cher recorded the song “Band of Thieves” without giving credit to Elyse. She remembers going to the movies with her friends to see Cher’s movie and to hear Cher’s version of her song “Band of Thieves”. When the credits came on it said all music by Sonny Bono, She was shocked.

Group: The Back Porch Majority
Release: The best of
Genre: Folk
Year: 2001

Chatham-Kent Connection: Dan Dalton is from Erieau.

Notes: The Back Porch Majority was one of several large folk music ensembles that were popular during the first half of the 1960’s. Along with the Serendipity Singers, they were considered rivals and imitators of the New Christy Minstrels, but they had a closer relationship to the latter group than any of their rivals, as they were founded by the same man, (Randy Sparks).  The Back Porch Majority did better than Sparks could have hoped for, despite the fact that they entered the field of “big band” folk music somewhat late — they were chosen to entertain at the White House in 1965, and were signed by Columbia Records to the latter company’s Epic label, where they ultimately released five LPs, including a live album recorded at Sparks’ club, Ledbetters. ~ Bruce Eder, All Music Guide

Release: What a Wonderful Christmas
Release: I’ll Always Love You/Somebody’s Waiting
Year: 2001
Chatham ConnectionAnne’s steel guitar player is Bob Lucier who is originally from Chatham-Kent (Grande Pointe).

Notes: In 2001, Bob’s pedal steel playing was heard on two separate releases by Ann Murray. The beautiful Christmas album is where Ann shines.  The other release is a double release of ‘out of print’ albums recorded on Capitol Records in 1978 and 1980. It includes her hit “What’s Forever For”, and two popular 60’s covers including “Daydream Believer” and “I’m Happy Just to Dance With You.”

About Anne Murray: Over the years, Anne’s recordings have seldom been off the charts. She has sold close to 50 million albums and has won countless awards. However, Anne Murray is more than just a Canadian icon. Her warm voice and well-loved songs have become woven into the fabric of our lives.

About Bob Lucier: Bobby Lucier has been a leader in steel guitar and is world renowned for his unique style and ability.  Bob was the resident Steel Player for “The Tommy Hunter Show” while it aired on the CBC television network from the mid ’70’s until its demise. He was also the first steel guitarist with the famous Johnny Burke and Eastwind.  Before that, he played in Bill Anderson’s “Po’ Boys band”, “Myers Brothers and the Jubilaires”, and a few others. Bob’s steel guitar playing is on many of Ann Murrays albums recorded through the years.



Jani Jakovac 2001 CD

November 28, 2009

Artist: Jani Jakovac
CD Release: Jani Jakovac
Year: 2001
Home Town: Chatham Ontario
Resides: Vancouver

1. Walk Away
2. Who Will I Be Now
3. Sacrifice
4. The Score
5. I’d Rather Be

Note:  She studied drama and played varsity volleyball at the University of Guelph in Ontario. The day after graduating, she moved to Vancouver to pursue an acting career.

About the CD:
  This was a 5 song demo cd meant for record labels.  Three of the songs were my originals, one was an original a guitarist/friend of mine wrote and one was a cover song of a Dutch artist I had come to appreciate while living in Europe. I hadn’t come into my own style yet and it is far from the music I now perform.  This change of style is very apparent in the first rendition of my song “I’d Rather Be”.  I later recorded a jazzy version of this song on the “This is Her Life” cd.  My live performances at this time were few and far between and playing the piano in any live performance was not part of the mix yet.  It was a gig that I was performing with two guitarists and a hired pianist that I first discovered people might be interested in listening to me play and sing as I performed one original song that night.  That was the beginning.  What really spurred on the solo act was a stand-up bass player that was to play a one set gig with me (him playing every song and me only playing on 2) cancelled on me 5 days before the gig.  I quickly had to learn a set’s worth of songs and perform on my own.

Fifth Season – Patiently Waiting CD (2001)

July 20, 2009
N.K.A. Social Code
N.K.A. Social Code

Band: Fifth Season
Release Title: Patiently Waiting
Date: 2001
Style: Rock
Home: Alberta
Chatham Connection: Travis Nesbitt (vocals) was born and raised in Chatham Ontario Canada.

1. Trebleface 
2. Monday Morning 
3. Patiently Waiting 
4. Losing Ground 
5. Everything’s Fine 
6. Yesterday’s Ocean 
7. Covered Eyes 
8. She 
9. The Static 
10. You and Me 
11. Neverland 
12. Choked 
13. A Cold Road 
14. Funkapuss 



   Initially formed in 1999 by high school friends Travis Nesbitt (vocals) and Logan Jacobs (bass), Canadian alternative rock act Social Code was originally called Fifth Season. The LP Patiently Waiting was released in 2001, and the group later changed names to their present alias upon finding their original moniker to be popular already with a group overseas.

    Inking a deal with Interscope in late 2003, the band released their debut album as Social Code, A Year at the Movies, in May 2004. Dates that fall were spent on the road in Canada headlining shows with Bif Naked and the guys from television’s Jackass. A few lineup changes occurred over the years; after guitarist David Hesse left the band in the mid-2000s, Chris Ruddy (ex-Drive by Punch) soon joined on to complete Nesbitt, Jacobs, and drummer Ben Shillabeer. Ruddy was later replaced by Morgan Gies on guitar. Social Code also opened for Good Charlotte on select Canadian dates during their 2005 tour. ~ Corey Apar, All Music Guide

   From their penetrating lead track “Trebleface” to the melodic single “Everything’s Fine” (suburban life at its finest), to the anthemic splendour of “You And Me”, Fifth Season play with power and precision. Their songs attack all senses, from the visceral rock to the seemingly disturbing lyrics. Accomplished songwriters and musicians at the age of 21, the Edmonton-based band are the newest buzz band in Canada and the U.S. after playing NewMusicWest in Vancouver in May/01 and NXNE in Toronto in June/01. Fifth Season was chosen as the “Unsigned Pick of NXNE” by Karen Bliss, freelance rock writer, in Pollstar

   The teenage rock musicians grew up in the cosy suburbs of St. Albert. They have the full support of their parents. One of the fathers is the band’s manager. Another dad got them all part-time jobs.

   It helps that the 19-year-old vocalist is a natural and charismatic frontman. Backed by the raw intensity of his bandmates – guitarist Rob Schellenberg, bassist Logan Jacobs and drummer Andrew Patrick – Nesbitt has the makings of a world-class rock singer. His voice has power and an expressive quality heard in singers such as the Watchmen’s Daniel Greaves. Nesbitt did it without training or experience of any kind. He says his only stage time prior to joining the band was in drama class, or as the class clown (where his intended audience wasn’t always so receptive).
