Buck 65 (aka Rich Terfry) and Gord Downie


…the EP ’20 Odd Years: Volume 1 — Avant.’ On this first installment, singer Jenn Grant tempers Buck 65’s gruff delivery with a sweet melody on the track ‘Who by Fire,’ while Coral Osborne, daughter of 54-40 frontman Neil Osborne, shows up on the banjo laced ‘Red Eyed Son.’

Indeed, the vast majority of tracks on the forthcoming ’20 Odd Years’ are collaborations. Terfry set out to “work with talented musicians of all stripes,” and he recruited singers such as Gord Downie, Meaghan Smith, John Southworth and Gentleman Reg to add a quality elusive from his previous offerings. The result might be his most accessible offering to date.
