Abby's Amblings - The Path - Released March 11, 2020 

The 15 songs on this release combine those previously released on 2 EPs: Abby's Amblings and Abby's Amblings - A Little Further Down the Path.

Since everyone loved the "Nashville story" of how Abby's Amblings came to be, I decided to include it in the liner notes of the physical CD. You can also download a PDF version ( CLICK HERE ). 

Many thanks to all who have loved and supported me through this journey, I couldn't have done it without you. 

Special thanks to Rojo Marlowe who believed in me from the start and made my songs come to life with his instrumental wizardy; to Paul Bezooyen for making it all work up here in Canada and producing my songs; and last but not least to Meg Keene and Linda Bezooyen for the angelic harmonies you so graciously added to the mix

 Abby Grace - Biography

( by David Morrison )

“Not-Too-Shabby-Abby / Loves to sing her songs

She’s a happy Abby / When everyone sings along” 

Born in Hearst and growing up in Hornepayne, ON, Abby Grace was not exposed to a great deal of music as a youngster, but looking at the gusto with which she pursues music for the pure joy of it today, the only explanation is that she was born with it coursing through her veins!  Having only latently decided to truly follow her musical bliss in earnest in 2011, Abby has already taught herself how to play guitar (a hand-built cigar box model to boot!), written around seventy original songs, and racked up dozens of local live appearances.  Sometimes in life we have itches to scratch, and the passionate way Abby has launched herself into her musical adventures is a perfect illustration of that notion in action.

Like so many, Abby believes her first emotional reaction to music was for The Beatles, especially the acoustic Lennon-McCartney masterpiece , Norwegian Wood, and the 1965 pop game-changer, Rubber Soul.  Later, rock legends such as Fleetwood Mac, Phil Collins, as well as lots of ‘soft rock,’ country and folk music all played their parts in Abby’s musical thinking, providing an education she now carries to the stages of Vancouver Island with her own affectionate cover versions of songs by her idols.

Abby’s own material, however, is unfailingly upbeat, jaunty and celebratory, projecting inclusive messages of hope and joy.  She injects her music with a playful innocence, reflective of the fun she had when singing in a vocal group on CBC in Grades 7 and 8.  And now, although relatively late in life to take it up, Abby is pursuing a musical dream held since she was that child, and it would seem from the reactions to her songs and performances that it is indeed a dream come true!

Abby’s debut release was the Abby’s Amblings EP (2016), a six-song release resulting directly from a chain of events starting by pure chance in a Nashville, TN bar.  The songs have attracted the attention of circles within Nashville’s publishing and songwriting communities, and in turn that of The Hermit’s Music.  As a consequence of the latter’s involvement, a second EP, entitled Senses of the Sea, was released mid-August 2017.  Bearing nautical and oceanic themes, the 9-song CD was overseen and released by The Hermit’s Music’s Paul Bezooyen, who contributes guitars, percussion and backing vocals.  Also on board are Dave Barta (Celtic Chaos) on accordion, piano and backing vocals; Rod Sauer (harmonica) Kenny Brault (mandolin); Linda Bezooyen (harmony vocals) and Abby’s grandchildren Aiden, Ethan and Cole on gang vocals!  Based on the songs from her Senses of the Sea album, Abby has created a wonderful activity book for children (and those who are young at heart) as well as a children's musical, featuring short dialogues along with sing along songs, and a focus on inspiring imagination and fun.

July 2019 marked the Release of Abby's Amblings 2 - a 9 song EP which is an extension of the work she has done with those involved in Abby's Debut album mentioned above.

It is a testament to her creative energy that, while producing Amblings 2, Abby was hard at work on her next project which will be a 100 % Hermit's Music production. Together with producer Paul Bezooyen, Abby will be exploring a whole new sound and texture for her new album, employing veteran studio musicians. STAY TUNED.  

Whether performing solo acoustic shows, or playing in various bands/groups,  Abby Grace is absolutely in her element, taking the audience with her in a singalong celebration of music and life’s joys and quirks!
