It tickles me all sorts of colours to make this post!  6 years ago, when I started writing this blog about barding, it was before the days of having my songs recorded.  Flash forward to now…..and a fourth album has appeared!!

While What’s Life All About?, New Day, New Path, New Legend, and I’d Rather Walk involved “going,” on barding journeys and visiting new people/communities, I feel the latest project, All We Ever Need, is the first one that really captures the stories from having “been,” barding in a new world…..Ironically, the new world is my own home country of Canada!

It sounds funny to say that, but I had spent a lot of time exploring other countries in the world.  It dawned on me I knew very little, and had seen less of Canada…..something to be remedied.

Through the I’d Rather Walk project, I’ve covered just over 2200 miles (3500+ Km) since 2013 in a variety of provinces.  In terms of new music, my original intent was to hold off making a new record until the walk project was complete.  However, new people enter your life, new encounters shift your outlook, life changes, and I couldn’t be happier for this.  That is All We Ever Need in a nutshell, and has emerged as a part two continuation of I’d Rather Walk.  I am thrilled to finish this adventure with its stories and lessons by my side, and am so excited to share them with you!

I am aiming to finish getting to know Canada on foot by 2020, so keep your eyes out for a wandering minstrel with a backpack, guitar, and a smile on his face :).

To listen to the new album, All We Ever Need, venture to this link, http://michaelaverill.com/all-we-ever-need-is-here-and-available-to-the-world and it will take you to the various forms and places you can experience it.  Enjoy, leave a thought, and see you down the road….
