These are the tunes on "Uncharted Waters":
“Old Friend” dedicated to you who know who you are. “Rosie the Riveter-Volume II” dedicated to the women of DeHavilland Aircraft and all women working in non-traditional jobs and fighting the good fight against sexism. “Freddy’s Song” dedicated to my friend Fred Taylor from Curve Lake, Ontario, a survivor of the residential school system and living proof of the existence of a human spirit. “Uncharted Waters” I originally wrote for my son’s wedding, a song for all those lucky enough to find a life partner to share the path ahead. “Maple Syrup Time” about the inevitable victory of spring over winter; of hope over despair! “Salem” I think about three of my female ancestors who were led to the gallows and all the implications for the generations since: especially for my daughter and granddaughters. “Won’t Back Down” inspired by the 1996 OPSEU strike against the “shock and awe” assault on fundamental rights in Ontario. “We’ll Not Forget” a contribution to the National Day of Mourning on Aprl 28th and a reminder of who built and maintains this country. “Gas Jockey’s Lament” is about a losing battle with technology and a small chapter in my life. “Vancouver" - images of a town I have loved so well.
"was on my way out and popped it in the car stereo and this wave of emotion came over me. You sound just like you waaaaay back when. The 'friend' song is absolutely beautiful and by the time I hit the freeway, I was fully in tears. So much for the makeup! " -Jill Micholuk, North Vancouver
