Skydiggers says
This is an acoustic show celebrating the release of our new album “The Songs of Gene Clark”.

On Skydiggers’ new album, Here Without You – The Songs of Gene Clark, one of Canada’s most treasured bands interprets the work of one of the world’s most treasured songwriters. The album, to be released May 13 via Latent Recordings, is an eight song collection which covers, and in some cases radically reinvents, such timeless Gene Clark compositions as The Byrds’ classics “Eight Miles High” and “Feel A Whole Lot Better” in the JUNO Award winning Skydiggers’ equally timeless folk pop style. Delivered in a stark, haunting manner, the intimate album was recorded by Michael Timmins (Cowboy Junkies), who serves as producer.

"It seems like we've been fans of the Byrds forever, so to say that we've just discovered Gene Clark's songwriting contributions to the band makes it seem like he's been hiding in plain sight all of these years. In this discovery we have made a connection to our roots; not just to the roots of folk rock and the Woody Guthrie, Bob Dylan, or Gene Clark in the New Christy Minstrels style of folk singing but back to the Appalachians and across the ocean to the songs of the Brits and the Scots."
