St. John’s born musician Ken Tizzard has come home to release his latest project.
“A Good Dog Is Lost” is a collection of Ron Hynes Songs. Tizzard told Irish Newfoundland Show host, Greg Smith, this was an album he wanted to do, but was hesitant of doing for a long time.
He says he talked to Hynes about doing it before but never got around to it. After a period of grief when Hynes passed away, Tizzard admits it was hard to take the first step, but once he began doing demos everything began to take shape.
Tizzard says some of the songs, like Sonny’s Dream, had to make the album, but some of the others came from an emotional attachment. Tizzard toured with Hynes following his first bout with Cancer, and a lot of the songs they played had to be altered due to the singer’s voice being weak. He says some of the songs on the album will sound different from the original version, but will sound closer to the way the duo performed them.
Tizzard and his band will perform the entire album tonight at the Ship Pub with doors opening at 8 p.m. Tickets will be available at the door.
