CD – Acoustic/Trio
Fireweed: A little like CSN, a lot less famous …
Fireweed is Jamie Campbell, Gary William Rasberry & Rob Unger. Voiceplay, guitarwork and a mutual love of all things acoustic fire the songs that we write and perform. Fireweed’s reputation for heartfelt, intimate live shows is wide-spread and well-known. We’ve performed at Blues Skies Music Festival, Summerfolk, Stewart Park Music Festival, the Ottawa Folk Festival, Mariposa, Hillside Music Festival, Skeleton Park Music Festival and the Amherst Island Folk Festival.
Although currently not active, we’ve been together for almost 15 years now. During this time we’ve been fast friends (brothers really and truly) who have experienced the highs and lows one might expect in the ‘biz. We’ve made music in some amazing places, enjoyed the company of some incredible people, experienced the rush of performance, the thrill of navigating the 401 and the buzz of finding out what’s possible when the three of us push ourselves musically and creatively.
We’ve made just one recording during our lengthy history together: truly a source of pain and consternation not just to me but to the many people who have supported us over the years. (If Fireweed received one ‘Loonie’ from each and every person who asked—no demanded—“When is your next record coming out?” the resulting cash flow would easily eclipse any FACTOR, OAC or Canada Council Grant.
Why? Why have we not returned to the studio? Why not a live record, even? Why have we shown our loving Fireweed supporters just the tiniest slice of our musical palette? I’m not sure, really. I do know it’s certainly not because we enjoy our Eagles-like status as a perpetual reunion tour band doing our greatest hits.
