Instruments: Vocals, Guitar, Bass, Mandolin, Harmonica details
Not many people take the chance to go down " The road not taken", the one they thought they left behind. But you may find that road has been weaving it's way through your path the whole time, that's what Dave Cormier discovered in making his self titled debut album Cor-Me-Eh.
Dave grew up in Nova Scotia an area steeped in music tradition. His Father was a violinist once considered a child prodigy. Dave's passion for music wasn't in the classical music of his dad or the traditional music Nova Scotia is known for but in the raw energy of rock and roll. Dave packed his bags and headed West where he joined a punk band as a bass player and began his musical journey. Dave took on the lead singer role while based in Winnipeg and started playing rhythm guitar as well as bass in an alternative rock band. The band attracted the attention of Duke Street Records and were offered a record deal but it was not to be as Dave had already decided to leave the band and move back to Nova Scotia.
Although Dave took a sabbatical from his music and moved to British Columbia a couple of years later it was never far from his thoughts as he continued to write the occasional song and indulge his passion for guitars. It was during a conversation with a friend in 2011 that Dave decided to write songs again in earnest. He received so much positive feedback at gigs and from friends that he decided to record an album. Dave decided to work with Producer Zak Cohen at The Woodshop Studio in Duncan, B.C. and enlisted drummer Pat Stewart, bass player Doug Elliott, keyboardist Darcy Phillips and backup singer Martyn Jones to help out.
It all came together in the studio resulting in a fantastic rock/blues rock record that retains a timeless quality, but still has a modern feel. Dave's voice has never been better pulling you in with it's raspy tone weaving it's way in and out of Dave's thought provoking lyrics. The beautiful and edgy lead guitar playing of Zak Cohen and the chunky and innovative rhythm guitar of Dave Cormier coupled with the powerhouse rhythm section of Pat Stewart and Doug Elliott really sets the stage for this album.
