I met byron many years ago. he was sitting on a bed in a tiny room in a little punk house in guelph, ontario. it was freezing outside & there was torn plastic on the windows. the house had no heat & he was in almost full winter get up.
I'm not sure if we became friends at first but he was always engaging & energetic, especially when he played music. a lot of the first songs I remember him playing were call & response folk tunes that it seemed everyone knew the words to but me.
probably five years later, he's been in & out of my life but is now a close friend.
from the insert...
"so, this is called sad campfire songs after something my brother said when I was playing him a couple of the songs on this album. he said they all sounded like sad campfire songs. I thought it was tragically beautiful and kept it.
shits been really fucking terrible for awhile and this is the release. I hope to play some of these songs only a little while longer and then hide them away. some of them are so loaded, they're tough to play. let me know what keeps you sane and in joy"
