Danielle Bourjeaurd: "Bigger Glass ft Gord Bamford" (ole red dot): Country singer/songwriter Bourjeaurd has proven adept at catching the ear of some major Canadian stars. She made an impact a few years back by collaborating with Tom Cochrane on the hit song "Sunday Afternoon Hang" (one she co-wrote), and this new single features Gord Bamford.


In a press release, the vivacious vocalist explains that "I have been a very big fan of Gord for several years. "When Your Lips Are So Close" has to be one of the best songs and performances ever released by a Canadian country artist and his latest "Dive Bar" has me and my girlfriends dancing! When I heard he liked my voice and my writing I was blown away and then to hear that he'd do a duet with me on "Bigger Glass", well I almost died!"

The results are impressive, as the two stars trade verses and harmonise effectively on a tune featuring whiskey as the cure for post-breakup pain  -- "I'm dusting off the vinyl, breaking out the good stuff tonight." The vocals are virile and convincing, and this sounds like a potential hit.

The winner of the Best Emerging Artist Award at Toronto Indie Week 2017, Bourjeaurd has been living, working and writing in Nashville for the past five years, writing with veterans like Frank Myers, Odie Blackmon and Roger Springer to more recent hit makers like Leslie Satcher, Emily Hackett, Davis Corley, Summer Overstreet, and Canadians Aaron Pritchett and Ian Janes.

Good news for fans of this song is that Bourjeaurd joins Bamford's national coast-to-coast tour in November/December for the Ontario & Eastern leg, performing the duet with him.

Neil Young's New Album 'FU##IN' UP' Has Live Recordings from Intimate Toronto Venue The Rivoli

FU##IN' UP, the new album by Neil Young & Crazy Horse, features performances of songs from his 1990 album Ragged Glory, recorded live at Toronto's Rivoli, seemingly during a much-rumoured secret show last November. He'll bring his upcoming tour to Toronto's Budweiser Stage in May, 2024.

Canadian icon Neil Young is adding to his immense discography with a new release this spring, a live album titled FU##IN UP'. The album, featuring Young's longtime band Crazy Horse, consists of nine live recordings from 2023 and is set for a limited edition two-LP release this April, in partnership with Record Store Day. According to the album's credits as noticed by Exclaim!, it was recorded at Toronto's Rivoli club, meaning it likely captures Neil Young & Crazy Horse's secret show at the Rivoli last November.

At that show — supposedly a private birthday party for Canada Goose CEO Dani Reiss — according to reports that generated a lot of buzz when they appeared online days later, Young performed most of his 1990 album Ragged Glory. FU##IN' UP features primarily songs from Ragged Glory, with new titles taken from lyric fragments. ("Over and Over," shared as a single, is now "Broken Circle.") The album features performances from Crazy Horse members Billy Talbot on bass, Ralph Molina on drums, and Nils Lofgren and Micah Nelson on guitar and piano, and Reiss is credited as a presenter.
