Dead Man's Shoes

Enter Laurie Ernst, the great country-rock drummer Kim met decades ago though Broderick Smith (who also makes an appearance on harmonica). Kim's longtime neighbour Garry Steel plays keyboards and accordion. Wheel  comrade Jeff McCormack plays bass; Kevin Bennett brings a close harmony; Kym Warner, Roni Francois, Michael King and Mark Punch drop by, too.

In the true spirit of collaboration, Glen also brought his own guitars and guests to the table, notably Hammond player Clayton Doley and Nashville strings king, Will Kimbrough (Rodney Crowell, Josh Rouse).

 The result is an apparently effortless album steeped in empathy, good will, and long roads of mutual experience. For Kim, it's a sublime act of consolidation after living and breathing music for close to 50 years.

"I feel like I've put my heart on the line here and it scares the hell out of me," he says. "It really is the first time I've actually spilled my guts and shown people what I really am, what I really think.

"It's a combination of my whole life in music and I'm really proud of that. This is how I want to sound and what I want to say. For the first time, this is really me."
