I’m happy to present ‘It Takes Luck to Get the Best of Me’. a new album released June 5, 2020 via my Bandcamp page. Now, it’s not the album I had planned to record this year, but I really wanted to bring something fresh and new to the world while we’re all locked down. It’s a stripped down affair comprised of songs I’ve yet to find a home for and a significant departure from the previous three releases with Lost Country. Some songs I wrote, some songs friends wrote, and a couple of old favourites of mine.

I recorded my parts at home and enlisted the help of some very talented friends to join me on select tracks from wherever they could set up. Grant Siemens, Ryan ‘Skinny’ Dyck, Kristopher Ulrich, David Landreth, Del Barber, Harley Hoeft, Jessica Lyons, Denise MacKay, and Joanna Miller, played and/or sang on the record and it includes songs written by friends Little Miss Higgins, Cam Penner, Curtis Phagoo, Rob Waddell, and Wade Mosher. Wade played some Organ along with handling the mixing & mastering while my old pal James Payne designed a beautiful piece of art for the album cover.
One day when we’re back on the road you’ll ideally be able to take a copy home on vinyl. But, for the time being, this will be a digital release that you can find at:

This is my second effort of 2020 after our February release of ‘A Bakersfield Half-Dozen’, with Lost Country. Vinyl & Digital copies of this record are available to order via the Bandcamp page or by emailing:

And remember, you can catch me spinning beautiful country music by beautiful country music singers, every Tuesday from 11am-1pm (CDT) on “Boots & Saddle” on CKUW 95.9 FM in Winnipeg. Online at: or on the TuneIn radio app.
