“Lonely” is the first single from the upcoming album release, “Don’t Be Afraid”. (Release date: 25 September 2015)
This song was begun in 1972 by a young Ron Neilson, who recorded a demo outside a hotel room while on tour across Canada. Decades later, it was completed by his daughter Tami and son Jay when they discovered the demo a week after he passed away in Feb 2015. While grief and loss are entwined in a melancholy dance throughout the lyrics, the music and melody are brought back to life to celebrate the man who laid the foundations of Tami’s musical career. Released on Ron’s birthday, Tami remembers her father in this fitting tribute.
