Like many others earlier this year, I was taken back by the news around Gord Downie’s health, and was glued to my TV for CBC’s coverage of their show in Kingston.

It allowed me to reflect on what the Hip meant to me, and the tremendous impact they have had (musically and otherwise) on me, fellow Canadians and others around the world. I loved watching all the tribute performances to Gord and the Hip, and how much it brought people together. “This campfire won’t last forever… The Hip have only wrote so many songs.” from Arkells comes to mind.

I am so thankful to have been able to record a Hip cover with my good friend Peter Scott Gibbons. Peter and I met in Ottawa at work and have been jamming together ever since over the years. It also marks the first track I’ve done to have (backup) vocals of mine of any kind, hah!

Here’s our cover of “Long Time Running”, for Gord.
