Music in Black & White was music inspired by my black and white photographs that I have been taking for close to two decades. I have especially been fond of photographing Canadian and American countryside and its way of life. In 2010, some friends and I took a trip to the Otha Turner Family Goat Roast Picnic, an underground festival started by the Fife & Drum legend himself. What resulted was a lot of pictures and a lot of music. What I began to do was to put music to my black and white photographs. Here is the first edition of songs.

If you purchase the Digital Album, it comes with five full-resolution photographs that accompany the music. (all rights reserved for photographs)

Track Name: Petr Cancura & Annie Lynch - Someone Above
I won't wait til the morning
Worry has found me tonight
If I could stay without sorrow
I wouldn't have to decide

I won't wake you when I go
For love is a powerful thing
It's easy to leave without sorrow
When all of the world is aleep

I won't wait til the morning
Leaving has found me tonight
If this world won't let me settle
Then someone above surely might
Track Name: The Last Waltz
When We were young
a long time ago
remember that place
for ever my dear
the last dance is gone

When I said good bye
we both forgot
nothing that's found
will ever be lost
because I have found you

Who will I dance with
when I hear a waltz
Who will I sing with
when it's time to go home

On an old lonesome night
when the wind's howl I hear
Not the crying do I fight
nor the dark do I fear
Because I have found you
