Red River Risin’ – Music Runs in the Family

I believe nobody in our CreComm world knows about my dad’s songwriting talents.

In his musical career, he wrote for and played guitar on a children’s TV show and released a children’s gospel album named ‘Booster Shot’ (I might have some retro cassettes kicking around if you’re interested). He can also write astounding lyrics on the spot and is gathering some old recordings for a new release soon (hopefully).

I got most of my musical talents from him and I’m forever grateful. We have plans to collaborate more in the near future after I release some of my own music, but below is a throwback to a song of his that I contributed to. I tracked the drums for it, and it was really my first ever recording experience.

My dad wrote this song several years ago for Winnipeg and its annual flood-scare season. Enjoy…

p.s. I’ve also revealed my old Vimeo account… Don’t even try looking for incriminating clips. I’ve gone through all my old vlogs and changed the viewing privacy settings to ‘Only Me’. If you really want to watch goofy 18-year-old Manny’s travel videos, I guess you could ask me nicely. Although, I did upload a new video (my montage) on there for you to enjoy.

Cheers.
