Reckless Daydreams – the new single, marks the first taste of Trevor Alguire’s 7th album, bringing with it a maturity in songwriting seldom seen and rarely reached, captured by only a select few of this country’s most prolific well-travelled veteran songwriters. Alguire draws from over a decade of touring across North America and Europe.
Trevor had just hit the studio to start recording Reckless Daydreams when he received the news that his mom had cancer, six weeks later she was gone. Trevor boarded a plane one week later for a two-week tour of Europe unsure if he would even continue the album upon his return. “My mom was my anchor, keeping me grounded every day, and to suddenly have her taken away I can’t even start to describe that kind of heartache. Forcing myself back into the studio as a way to grieve was my way of coping, and each song started to take on its own meaning and direction.” Thus forming an album unlike any other Trevor has written to date, an album of reflection, loss, heartache and hope.
Rebecca Noelle (backing vocals) and Jeff Asselin (drums) of The Commotions accompany Trevor on the new single Reckless Daydreams, along with Fred Guignion on guitar and Alex Mastronardi on bass and keys. Reckless Daydreams comes on the heels of his last album Perish in The Light’s very successful run in the top 5 for over 32 weeks on the Roots Music Report Chart and calls from many to the awards committees (The Juno Awards & The Polaris Prize) to take note. With over 70 songs recorded in only a decade Alguire travels through this world passionately sharing these stories with everyone he meets. All the while gathering and documenting these special moments and conversations while continuing his heart felt journey assured to leave in his wake a lifetime of precious stories told.
