The album was produced at the HenHouse Studio in Nashville by Juno-award winning Canadian producer, Steve Dawson, and features his multitude of guitar and stringed instrument talents, along with the stunning upright stylings of bassist Jeremy Holmes (from Vancouver) and infinitely-tasteful percussion elements of Jamie Dyck (of Nashville). Recorded on all analog equipment, with Jacquie performing simultaneously on vocals and acoustic guitar, and the other musicians live on the studio floor without the use of click-tracks, this first single is a testament to the emotion and musical sensitivity that can be achieved with authentic performances by seasoned, human musicians.

Affliction (c) Jacqueline Drew (Socan)

Ah, ah- ah, ah- ah…

Are you a passing brush of youth?

Or are you an all-enduring lifelong truth?

And if I could give you all I am and have no fear

Would you burst with happiness or lakes of tears?

 

And do I ask too much or not enough?

Is this a tryst or love?

If I squeeze harder, will you implode?

Is it time to ask, or should I never know?

 

I wouldn’t say you’re an addiction, cause I don’t want a cure

And it feels more like transfixion, where I hang on every word

You’re testing my conviction, and still I’m so unsure

There’s only one description……affliction

 

Years pass, and still we can’t commit

So is it just easier if we admit

That we’re not the ones that each of us deserve

But wanting it all, as if we had the nerve?

 

And do I ask too much or not enough?

Is this a tryst or love?

If I squeeze harder, will you implode?

Is it time to ask, or should I never know?

 

I wouldn’t say you’re an addiction, cause I don’t want a cure

And it feels more like transfixion, where I hang on every word

You’re testing my conviction, and still I’m so unsure

There’s only one description……affliction

Ah, ah- ah, ah- ah…
