Sweet Like Honey
I suppose I needed a cheery song on the EP, so Sweet Like Honey was introduced.
Me and my friend Lucas spent many afternoons on the cliffs of Straford, Prince Edward Island while overlooking the beautiful Hillsborough River. We'd watch sailboats coming and going as we breathed in the fresh sea-infused air. It was heavenly.
At this point of my Summer, it felt as though a window had been opened in a very dark room. Me and the guys spent many afternoons jamming in the cottage while watching the wondrous sunset-- I wasn't used to jamming with people.
I recorded the vocals and acoustic guitar in Toronto, ON at Afterglow Audio. Like the rest of the songs on the album, the recording process was completed in Charlottetown, PE at The Hill Sound Studio.
Alan Dowling laid down the drums on this one. I met Alan whenever I was playing flute in the Holland College Community Band-- he was head of the band. Actually, following High School, my original plan was to major in Flute at UPEI, as I wanted to study to become a composer; however, after failing at Theory Boot Camp, my music illiteracy was a block in that path.
Lucas Manuel (co-writer) popped into the studio in Charlottetown to lay down some electric and acoustic guitar. We hadn't seen each other in nearly a year, so it was a nice little reunion. Adam Gallant laid down the bass, additional electric guitar, percussion and keys, and Dennis Ellsworth also laid down some keys. The song was produced by myself, Adam Gallant, and Dennis Ellsworth.
