I co-wrote, recorded, mixed and posted a song!!!!!!

The song was an evolution and started this past summer at the time of the Fort McMurray fires. Neighbourliness is one of the great things about Alberta. No matter what politics or religion we hold, folks in this province pitch in, especially during crisis. We carry each other through and that is something to be proud of. This generosity and outpouring is something to be cultivated and to hold dear. And thanks to all first responders such as paramedics, police and firefighters who help in some of the most difficult times that we can have.

Carry Us Through
Toby Tellier, Howard Bergeron, Jason Crotty

Smell the smoke and feel the heat
Hear the siren call
Load the car with what we can
All the memories from the hall
Food and clothes but leave the rest
And make our way through the burning valley

Darlin’ we have each other
At least we have each other
We all have each other
Carry us through

Hold our breath at Beacon Hill
See the firestorm
Strong and brave lead us through
With gritty eyes and steady hearts
We head up north to where we hope
Open arms are waiting

Darlin’ we have each other
At least we have each other
We all have each other
To carry us through

Breaks my heart lookin’ back, no matter how much we try
All we built is gone in ashes in the blink of an eye
In one moment life can change, I hold you and the babies close
We count all our blessings and thank those who gave the most

Darlin’ we have each other
At least we have each other
We all have each other
To carry us through

Yes we do

About the creators: Howie and Toby started writing songs to record for a Rocky Mountain Shakedown album of original music in 2017. Toby brought one of their songs Carry Us Through to Evan who came up with a fantastic keyboard arrangement. Evan knew Jason and shared the song with him. Jason and Toby finished the song and of course Jason delivered his fantastic performance. Everyone along each step of the way brought something to the song. It was a heartfelt collaboration and we hope you like it.
