Please stand by. Brand new video from Doug Cox & Linda McRae releasing in 2 hours
Two legends of west coast music, Doug Cox & Linda McRae, have a brand new album out on Trespass Music called Beyond The Great Pause
And the lyric video for their single of the same name, premieres in two hours: that’s 9 p.m. ET / 6 p.m. PT on Feb. 1.
Doug and Linda first shared a stage at the inaugural Stan Rogers Folk Festival, in Canso, NS, resulting in some of the most enjoyable, generous stage time they had ever experienced. Doug later invited Linda to be part of his Starman: An Acoustic Evening of David Bowie Songs. They decided not to wait so long between collaborations and voila, their new project was borne. But wait a minute! It took another three years before the new recording finally arrived due to some unforeseen circumstances.
Vicinity was somewhat of a problem as Linda lives in Nashville, TN and Doug in Courtenay, BC. In October of 2019 Linda flew out to Courtenay to start recording at Doug’s Garden Studios but the recording had to be put on hold due to a death in his family. Their second try came in March of 2020 when boom! COVID hit, and Linda had to high-tail it back to Nashville in the off chance she wouldn’t be able to get back home. The duo also had an 18-show tour booked during that time that unfortunately was canceled due to the pandemic.
Once safe to travel again our dynamic duo set out on a tour of BC and Alberta and low and behold three of the venues had recording equipment with talented engineers running the recording setup. Doug spent another few months mixing and mastering, and Linda put the packaging together. It was a true collaboration and here you have it! Doug and Linda’s first recording and its LIVE!
