“NO TROUBLE IN THE PEACE” – Album
Canadiana outlaw country virtuoso and folk singer Joey Only and his band of Outlaws are hot out of the gates and ready to share their latest recordings. Fresh back from the Transgression Trail, Joey Only has a brand new full lenth LP, “No More Trouble in the Peace”. This album is about trouble and redemption with explicitly Canadian content. The songs you will hear on this album speak about the restlessness of the heart, finding family, lost loved ones and overcoming unimagineable struggles. Anyone who has heard the demo cuts already agrees, this record will be the best product Joey Only has ever created.
ABOUT THE ALBUM
The title track ‘No More Trouble in the Peace’ is a joke song about the oil and gas companies trying to take over my friends ranch up in the Peace District here in British Columbia.
‘Beer League’ is a hockey song telling the story of the Big Dog Plumbing Team down in Nanton Alberta. The last team unfortunate enough to have Joey Only staking down the wing.
‘North of Number Seven’ waltzes eloquently about the loss of the old rural ways. It’s a lament about how things just never stay the same.
‘Walker Rock’ encourages survivalists to hit the bush when the shit hits the fan. Live in the shadows, think like an animal…you will do what it takes in those life or death days.
‘Noble Cause of the Cowboy Soldier’ is mostly based on the true story of a fallen friend and his family. The Alberta born young man went to Afghanistan and didn’t last a month there, the family didn’t want him to go but he believed he was doing the right thing.
‘Tempest Wind’ is the true story of our friend Tempest Grace Gales murder on Hornby Island BC, November 16th 2009.
I become widely known as a Stompin Tom Connors impersonator. So I rewrote the words to Tom’s tune ‘the Don Messer Story’ and relabled it ‘the Stompin Tom Story’ and now open my Stompin Tom Tribute shows with this number.
‘Cold Wooden Box’ is an epic waltzing ballad that reminds us to not take life for granted because it is so short. The only success I hope for is to have my songs remembered when I am gone.
