For Stephen Fearing, a cross-country relocation (from Halifax, Nova Scotia to Victoria, British Columbia) kicked off a period of reflection that inspired the songs, which became his ninth solo recording Every Soul’s a Sailor.
While they span a range of musical styles from folk to pop to boot-stomping roots, the tracks share a common focus – the value of The Journey; the various paths we take in love, life, and even after-love and the after-life.
Although born in Vancouver, Stephen spent most of his boyhood and teenage years in Ireland. There, he picked up the guitar and traces of the Irish and English musical traditions that have informed his music ever since; his musical roots are here and he looks forward to returning, sharing new songs and celebrating his new release with UK fans old and new.
