My boys’ new album My Friends will be released on Aug 20th. Listen to the preview here.

The album is wonderfully evocative ~ our family history set to music. “Listening to the parents talk” – our family trip to Philly. “The bodies in the winter are coming for you” – the boys played near the small morgue in the church graveyard next to our home. “The laughing camera shakes” – making the funniest ever home videos. “For the last time we arrive” our old farmhouse in the hills of Hartsville, PEI. “We build sandcastles knowing that they wash away” – all our happy summers spent with cousins on the Island’s beaches.

The lyrics bring me to tears one moment and laughter the next. And the harmonies? Well… a family who sings together is both a prayer and dream come true for this mama. Listening to my children sing is the best kind of happy.

    They’re going to be in your area this fall Ellen – and yours too Jill. Their tour dates are on the website. Can’t guarantee the show will be early though 🙂

    If you don’t get a cut, then at least insist they all autograph the DVD cover. Then sell it on eBay for big $$$.
