Pat LePoidevin’s songs travel in buses and breezes, picking up pollen, dust, dirt and crushed bugs along the way. Modern forensics could probably trace his journey, deconstructing the composition of each note to determine its place of origin.

 

LePoidevin relocated from the comforts of his Sackville NB home to creative tundra of Dawson City and Highway Houses was born from the solitude of nature. Thankfully, Pat’s journey wasn’t a McCandless-esque challenge to test his stamina and prove his resourcefulness. Pat embraced the beauty and new faces he saw, and as his touching vocals prove, was inspired by each and every experience. The scenes may whip past in a blink of an eye as the bus pushes on or a stranger breaks eye contact and walks away, but the emotion and history the characters hold close seem timeless.

 

Soothed by the subtle acoustic and ukulele, you might miss the spirit. Choral swells, hand claps or the occasional “woo” or “hey” that pierces through the serenity dare us to move. To free ourselves from the shackles of comfort. To scream out loud and live and let these songs be the slow burning embers left to warm our hands long after the sun drop below the horizon.
