In 2013, my husband David P. Smith toured alongside Troy "Bubba Uno" Cook and Ben Sures on the Death Ballad Love Tellers Tour. They each wrote death ballads for the occasion, which were of course performed at each show along with other less death-related songs.
Check out an article by Adrian Chamberlain that appeared in the Times-Colonist newspaper at the time.
Anyhoot, the image at the top is the artwork I recently completed for the cover of the album comprised of songs from the tour, tastefully recorded by Myke Hall at MFH Audio in Victoria, BC and masterfully mixed by Don Kerr in Toronto. The lettering was done by David, because he has a way with that kind of thing.
