The Canadiana Folk scene of the sixties was a beautiful time for the singer songwriter genre of Canadian musicians and many led the way worldwide in the expression of acoustic based story telling. Joni Mitchell, Gordon Lightfoot, Leonard Cohen, Sylvia Tyson, Buffy Sainte-Marie, Gene MacLellan, Bruce Cockburn,…and the list goes on and on. The genre has been lost on most mainstream media these days but not with “The Couchmen”. We have released a lot of Folk and Old Time country songs from writers up North and from our Hometown Of Kirkland Lake, Ontario.
We discovered, Jake Willis, a singer-songwriter and actor who was born and raised in Kirkland lake until the age of fifteen. He now resides down south, but we don’t hold that against him, as his Northern influence is definitely in his music. We were glad to have his song “Gold Fever” on our latest CD/DVD as the song really fit our Gold Mining Town of Kirkland Lake. Now we are releasing another one of Jake’s songs from his EP: Jake Willis – 4 Quartets. New Canadiana Folk Music is back!!…..and we’re glad to hear it!!
