“Time To Move On” (Tom Petty Cover)

We’re so excited to share our version of “Time To Move On” as part of the “Canada Covers Tom Petty” playlist.  Tom Petty has always been one of our favourite songwriters and an inspiration for the band because of his ability to make something so rich and meaningful seem so simple.

“Time to Move On” is one of our favourite songs from the album ‘Wildflowers’.  It just breezes along so effortlessly and reminds us of driving around rural Ontario in the fall.

Thank you Jadea Kelly for the opportunity to be a part of the playlist!  You can listen now on Spotify and YouTube.


Camp Dwayne Weekend Wrap Up

It might not bring back the campfire smell on your flannel or the lake in your hair, but we just got in the Camp Dwayne wrap video and it’s bringing back all the feels from a perfect weekend at Camp Timberlane.

Thanks to our good bud Dan Tahmizian for capturing the magic, to Yacht Rock historian Dan Griffin for donating his tune “Summertime”, and to all of you who made our first ever Camp Dwayne so special.
