Ray Francis 2010

January 1, 2020

rayfrancis_2010

Ontario’s Country Music Pioneers: Ray Francis

Born: February 9, 1931 – Eberts, Ontario
Died: June 30, 2010 – Chatham, Ontario

Based out of Chatham, Ontario, Ray Francis formed his first band The Whippoorwills in the late 1950’s (with John Tangelis, Max Dauphin, Ray Dauphin, and Bill Taylor) and they quickly earned a solid reputation by backing up touring Nashville stars like Ray Price, Johnny Cash, Jim Reeves, Faron Young, Ferlin Husky, etc., and making appearances on major stages. The Whippoorwills also hosted a “live” show, aired weekly for more than five years over CFCO radio in Chatham. The act recorded two albums in the mid 1960’s: “The Whippoorwills” released on Canatal Records; and “Country Jamboree” on Arc Records.

After the demise of The Whippoorwills group, Ray Francis joined Gary Buck’s touring country band based out of Sault Ste. Marie, and shortly afterwards, returned home to Chatham where he formed his own band, which featured his then-teenage son Mike “Pepe” Francis on lead guitar. The act was short-lived, as Mike Francis was lured away to work major recording sessions in Toronto, and Ray Francis then formed yet another back-up band, The Rancheros.

By the early 1970’s, Ray Francis was also launching a solo recording career with a debut album, “The Country Way”, released on Marathon Records. The lead single, “Restless Woman”, was one of many original songs that Ray Francis recorded during his career. Also in 1973, Ray Francis released the album “An Old Tyme Christmas”; and followed it up with two albums on the Condor Records label: the 1974 “The Two Sides Of Country”; and the 1975 package “The Good Old Days”.

The Condor Records albums yielded several nationally charted singles, including “If Ginny Knew”, which reached #39 on Canadian hit charts in 1974; “I Knew Her Then”, which was a Top 20 hit; and his best chart showing with the 1976 single “The Good Old Days”, which topped out at #11 on the charts. A subsequent single, “Out Of My Mind”, b/w [Ed: “b/w”: abbreviation for “backed with” – 45 RPM vinyl singles had an A and B side] “Little Bit of Heaven”, failed to chart. After a lengthy hiatus from the recording scene, Ray Francis returned to the recording studio in 1998, releasing the album “A Ray Of Country”, featuring updated selections of his previous hits, balanced with cover versions of country favourites.

During his senior years, Ray Francis continued to entertain audiences with personal appearances at music shows in local church halls and nursing homes in and around the Chatham area. Ray Francis passed away June 30, 2010 at age 79. His musical legacy lives on through his son Mike “Pepe” Francis, who has gone on to great fame as a producer of sessions for Canadian recording acts, as well as lending his award-winning guitar stylings to many of the recordings.

Tina Pumfrey 2018 CD – That Day

December 19, 2018

Artist: Tina Pumfrey
Release: That Day
Date: 2018
Home: Thamesville, Ontario, Canada (Chatham-Kent)
Genre: Contemporary Christian Singer/ Songwriter

Notes:
Take a familiar, everyday situation. Spin a few lyrics and chords, sprinkle with a dash of rock, blues, country; maybe some folk or gospel. It was a bit more complicated than that, but essentially, that’s it! My music looks at everyday life through the lens of faith. Whatever life throws at me, faith holds me together, and music is the constant in the background.

Since 2011, I’ve been performing around southern Ontario, solo and with my band. In 2014, we recorded “Where God Is” at Northwood Studios, with producer/engineer Matt Connell at the controls. We have just finished our second album, “That Day”, a 5-song EP. It was a great experience, working at SLR Studios in Windsor, under the guidance of Marty Bak. The final product was mastered by Greg Mindorff of Suite Sound Labs in Vancouver. It will be released on June 16, 2018.

Outdoor gospel nights, church events, festival stages, house concerts,… We are ready to bring the music to you, wherever you need it!

Tracks:
01. That Day
02. Sweet As Can Be
03. Home
04. Slow
05. New Song

Biugek 2018 Release

April 1, 2018

Duo: Biugek
Release: WRK
Year: 2018
Genre: Experimental metal
Home: Toronto
From: Chatham-Kent (Grand Pointe/Pain Court)

Biugek Members
Joel Caron – Keyboard, Expression Pedal
Nigel Barylewicz – Drums

Chatham-Kent connection: Both guys live in Toronto, but grew up in Chatham-Kent, and both are Pain Court high school graduates. Joel & Nigel played locally in heavier bands before moving away. Each, amazingly musically talented on their own, are pushing their boundaries by joining together simply to experiment and move further into new ideas.

Tracks
1.
WRK1
2. WRK2
3. WRK3
4. WRK4
5. WRK5
6. WRK6
7. WRK7

Notes:
  “For the 2nd album by Toronto group Biugek, called WRK, the drums-and-keyboards duo go deeper inside their metallic and mathematical vortex. And go to work. They aren’t laying back into the jams here, this is full on running a tight ship experimental polyrthythmic metal – a palate of dry black-and-white shadows mechanically running off course, a puzzling mind within the mind. This is fucking sick and it keeps coming at you in the best way. Picture an eccentric machinist curious what the gears can do when pushed to the limit, before they pop and pull apart in a chopper whirl of tools and die, that second before it explodes, all that study for a firework flash of time. Where perfect left turns act as alleyway shortcut savvy, blueprint navigation theirs alone, laying the dynamite’s trail, with the smoke cloud’s tail, where unwinding and serpentine entanglements of traps and keys pummel, work the shadows, and tease utter deterioration. For that firecracker blaze in a powdered second, they go to work.” – Kevin Cahill, Rotational Review

Sarah Hiltz 2017 Release

December 10, 2017


Artist: Sarah Hiltz
Release: Beauty In The Blue
Date: Nov. 7th 2017.
Genre: Modern Folk, Singer-Song Writer

Tracks:
01. I Took A Risk
02. Inside My Mind
03. Without You
04. No Proof
05. What We Leave Behind
06. Best I Can Believe
07. Fight Your Dark
08. Traveller’s Grace
09. How To Pour Whiskey For Strangers
10. Beauty In The Blue

Notes: Sarah Hiltz is an emerging singer/songwriter expanding the alternative Canadian folk tradition with her latest album, Beauty in the Blue, a compilation of songs and stories culled from her multiple journeys across Canada as a travelling musician on cross-country Via Rail passenger train, “The Canadian”. Inspired by the vastness and diversity both of Canada’s northern landscape and its inhabitants, Sarah fell in love with the quiet strangeness of train travel, the ever-changing vistas out the carriage windows, and the frank, open way strangers share their stories in those carriages; in hearing stories of pain, suffering, and beauty, Sarah found herself inspired to document not only the stories shared with her through song, but her own struggles in how to engage with those stories beyond her own art. Beauty in the Blue, co-produced by Sarah and Kevin Howley (Running Red Lights), sounds like the soundtrack to a country-wide journey– lush, nuanced vocals and jazz-influenced songwriting is complimented by a highly sensitive rhythm section and stand-out guitar work provided by Sarah’s long-term collaborators, drummer Jordan Michaelis and multi-instrumentalist David Puzak. The conversational lyrics are an attempt to connect strangers who share their stories, and in so doing create a bridge across the eclectic gap in our Canadian experiences, expressing what many suffering pain, loss, and confusion have found before- that through the storms that flash blue across our skies, there is beauty to be found if we are vulnerable with one another, if we listen, if we share our stories.
