Lake Louise

#LakeLouise is the second single off our album #Landscapes. It was written during a long cross #Canada trek years ago with someone close to me, we were moving to #Vancouver. It was a hard time, somehow I knew it would end which it eventually did. The whole thing had a profound impact on me and songwriting. I remember forest fires burning all over Alberta and BC. The sky was red and orange, it reflected in the water giving an illusion of fire that was so menacing but also beautiful. The place itself has a lot of wandering folks who seem to get lost there. I related to that and was somehow preparing for a massive life change, I wanted to disappear in it all. Lake Louise was written a while ago, but #TheLongWarBand really made it sing with Chad belting out the end chant "you were on fire, Lake Louise" with that powerful voice of his. It was one of the first tunes we learned together. It was #produced and #recorded like most of our other songs in #Toronto more accurately #Mississauga at #MetalWorks Studio with the great #KevinDietz. I remember laying down #ElectricGuitar as #Legendary #GregBelow founder of #DistortEntertainment and friend looked on. No pressure. Here's the lyrics and link to the song on Spotify...

Lake Louise


Lake Louise, beneath the burning sky

Like a dream you were on fire

Wild eyed, changing green to blue

While time runs away with you


Searching for all the lost souls

Caught in the fog, consumed by love

Washed ashore

Lake Louise


Ancient pines swaying like a gate

Mountains high up above the lake

She saves me, afraid that we wont return

To Lake Louise, where we let our love burn


Searching for all the lost souls

Caught in the fog, consumed by love

Washed ashore

Lake Louise


You were on fire

Lake Louise

You were on fire

Lake Louise

You were on fire

Lake Louise

You were on fire

Lake Louise

This is a photo Jarrett took that the band loved. We ended up using it as our single artwork for "Lake Louise."
