Three's a Charm

by Son Roberts

Storytelling is what music is to me - particularly the story of how the Blues, born of such brutally imposed misery, created a legacy of such enduring beauty. My music honours that legacy by creating modern Blues for the here and now.

ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Charmed, I’m sure.
Being my third album of original Blues, it’s obvious I live a charmed life. Take these three kids. When I just happened to take their picture in Cabbagetown, over forty years ago, I had been here about three weeks - and it was only my third trip here, ever.
These kids gave me everything I’ve ever need to remember about myself and Toronto. Be confident, playful, and charming … and don’t give much of a damn about what people think of you - particularly those who don’t know you. Toronto knows me. Why else would it have been so generous to me? This is where I got the chance to become a storyteller.
Storytelling is what music is to me - particularly the story of how the Blues, born of such brutally imposed misery, created a legacy of such enduring beauty. This album, like all of my music, honours that legacy by creating modern Blues for the here and now.
You know who you are

Extraordinarily talented people created this album. We were all charmed into doing it – for lucre, love, lust or larceny. This music brought us together, tore some of us apart – but that’s a whole other story. Many thanks to all y’all who are still of the cloth:
David Senior, Jr., Kate Roberts, Scott Bannister, Brett MacMillan, Son Roberts, Duncan McBain, Gail Roberts, David Boire and Sergio Faluotico.
Gary Kendall, Ed Roth, Jesse Whiteley, Alan Zimaitis, Sarah Thawer, Ralph MacDonald and Jerome Tucker.
John Crosbie, Sean Burns, Charles Collymore, Tim Browne and David Sparrow.

This album is dedicated to my mother, Joan Roberts, who sang to me as a child. I hear her strong voice to this day. And to my love, my always, Nancy McGovern.
