Singer-songwriter David Storey spent 25 years working as a video director and TV director/producer (including developing and directing the hit comedy series “Corner Gas”) before returning to his first love – music. His latest album appropriately titled “Coming Home” was released earlier this year and features nine semi-biographical songs about life, relationships, ‘the big picture’ and the challenges we all face – all delivered with empathy and a wry humour. Produced with Darryl Neurdorf (Blue Rodeo, Niko Case), the album features musical support from members of bluegrass band Traditionally Wound with Bazil Donovan (Blue Rodeo) on bass and a guest appearance from Anne Lindsay on fiddle and backing vocals. David joined us in the studio for an in-depth conversation and a few live songs. For more information about David Storey visit davidstoreymusic.com.
