It all started as a way to stay connected but now has turned into a family legacy and a blues album called Talkin’ ‘Bout Love.
“It’s a language that we both love,” said Graham Ord, musician.
The very first two songs we wrote were being stuck in all day and not being able to play and the other one was about being thankful for the people putting their lives on the line to keep people safe during the pandemic … and from there we got more silly.”
The collaboration between father and son was recorded in their home studios on either side of the Atlantic Ocean. Dad, Dane Stevens, in England and son, Graham Ord, in Kelowna.
“It was the first time we wrote songs together so that was very special and a bit daunting to me because I know how good of a writer that he is,” said Ord.
Also featured on the album are Ord’s brother Gary and many of his children to create something truly unique.
“When I think about this record, I do think of it as a legacy in that way,” said Ord.
“My kids really have something that they can remember us all doing together and it’s very special in that way.”
