A new album, made in Canada, continues the pattern established on two previous releases of wry wit and penetrating insights about life’s challenges, characters and passions. Delivered with both humor and poignance, it includes expressions of the life lessons he has learned riding the crests and troughs of fate, shared not with bitterness but simply as unearthed jewels he’s discovered.
An early musical career had seen him get airplay, rave reviews and award nominations for his Roots-Rock songs, which were compared to John Prine and Steve Earl. He then left music for less precarious work in the creative realm while raising a family for 20 years. At first directing videos and tv specials for the likes of Tom Cochrane, Stompin’ Tom Connors and Anne Murray, later gravitating into the comedic field, where he found acclaim developing, producing and directing the hit television show and movie “Corner Gas.”
Like his life since then his new songs reflect both sweet moments and poignant, biting obstacles. They weave a tapestry of highs, lows, insights and observations into a captivating journey through time, mind, soul and society. Wry wistfulness, revelatory humour and penetrating vision all coalesce in David Storey’s song catalogue to form a mosaic not unlike the land from which they arise.
