These songs were recorded amidst what Exclaim.ca called a “potentially gruelling tour”, 65 shows in three countries over the course of three months. After the better part of 50 shows and 20 000 kms driven, Zachary and his band at the time, Ian Cameron and Chris Sleightholm got the chance to record two songs at a studio nestled in the hills around Kelowna, British Columbia - the semi-traditional tune “Copper Kettle” which they learnt from a Bob Dylan bootleg recording and Dublin Blues which was written by the living legend Guy Clark.
"Zachary Lucky sings Copper Kettle and Dublin Blues" is available on vinyl only, and limited to 300 copies.
released September 4, 2015
Zachary Lucky played the acoustic guitar and sang, Chris Sleightholm played electric and baritone guitar, Ian Cameron played the pedal steel guitar.
All songs were recorded at Bottega Studios in Kelowna, BC on November 22nd 2014. These songs were recorded "live off the floor" to two inch tape using an MCI tape machine and Mozart console.
All songs were arranged and produced by Zachary Lucky, Chris Sleightholm and Ian Cameron. Engineered by Jamie Prentice.
