  • Compact Disc (CD) + Digital Album

    Michelle Dumond (Meshe) is a free-spirited gypsy musician with the soul of a jazz singer and the playfulness of a burlesque performer. Bob Dylan would love her. Rufus Wainwright would drag her onstage with him. Leonard Cohen and Shakira would team up to adopt her. She has the musical skills to establish credibility with a more artsy crowd and the earthiness and humor to make her more accessible to people like me who just love music.

    She can convey all kinds of moods with that husky, alluring, commanding voice. She can sing the fun “Bathtub Rag” about soaking in the tub and suddenly fog up the bathroom mirror by crooning invitingly, “So take off your clothes and wet your toes.” She can handle a serious issue with a whimsical approach (the opener “Humanity”).

    She can also dim the lights, as she does in the middle of this CD, and turn into a classically-inspired dark gothic composer. “Sandra” and “Au Revoir” are orchestral tapestries of cello, piano, violin, and sweeping melodic drama. I could almost touch the sound – it’s burgundy velvet. After it flowed over me and left me very still, Dumond wisely ended on an up note with “Sick on Christmas,” a wry yet jingling tune. She can do anything.

    She can sing anything, play anything, and seduce anyone.

about

A whole slew of people came out to play on this track! It was inspired by a bus ride between North Vancouver and English Bay.

lyrics

Some of us love beer
some of us love to fight
We’d all love sex (singing) if we just did it right
Some of us love dancing
Some of us play guitar
Some of us think love lives on a lonely distant star
Some of work hard and some don’t work at all
Some call them lucky and some would like to see them fall
O What is real o what is true
Can we please all agree on what to do

Cos we all need air and we all need light
We all need laughter to feel alright
We all want love and we all need sleep
We all have wisdom coming down real deep

Now some of us drive fast
Some don’t drive at all
Some think we’ll drive into a big fat wall
With all this bombing as the death tolls rise
Don’t forget about pollution look to the skeyes
Some of us are angry some of us don’t really care
Some of us are wondering if God is really even here

O What is real what is best
Let’s make things right
Let’s pass this test


Cos we all need light and we all need air
We’ve all shed at least one tiny little tear
All we need is light all we need is air
All we need is water to exist down here

So Courage up heart’s on Your sleeves
Cos it’s gonna take guts before the
Darkness leaves…
