Terry Savage‘s brand of country music is not likely to be found on the typical soccer mom’s playlist. However, if you’re a fan of honest, gritty and sometimes funny stories told against the backdrop of vintage country music sounds, then the native of Orillia, Ontario and his longtime loyal ragged company have everything you’re looking for.
Savage’s new album Rollin’ Heavy is a major step forward following two previous independent releases. Produced and engineered by Rob Currie at his namesake studio in Gravenhurst, Ontario, Rollin’ Heavy builds on his hell raisin’ live performances and widely shared videos such as “Runnin’ Through My Mind.” The new record features Mitch Ducharme on fiddle, his brother Joey on upright bass and banjo, Tim Kehoe on pedal steel and Telecaster, and Grant Lauer on drums.
Songs like “Dear John Note,” “Talkin’ In My Sleep” and “The Dust Will Settle” reflect Savage’s maturity as a songwriter drawing from his personal experiences. However, the backwoods humour is still present on “Full Pull” and other tracks that should appeal to anyone who works hard and plays hard.
Since 2015, Savage and the band have also shared stages with White Cowbell Oklahoma, and taken prominent spots at Barrie, Ontario’s Canada Day celebrations, Orillia’s Roots North Festival, Hard Rock Cafe Niagara Falls and the prestigious Mariposa Folk Festival. Now with Rollin’ Heavy under his belt, expect Savage to be hitting a town near you with a potent display of what country music is supposed to be.
