'HIP' BASSIST'S DEBUT SOLO ALBUM SET FOR LATE FEBRUARY RELEASE
Jan 10, 2020

Former Tragically Hip bassist Gord Sinclair says he’ll reflect on friendship and loss with his upcoming debut solo album ”Taxi Dancers,” set for release the end of February.
Two singles are now available including, ”It’s Already Too Late” and ”In the Next Life,” a sombre contemplation on mortality.
Sinclair worked on the 10-track album while processing the loss of Hip frontman Gord Downie, who died of brain cancer in late 20-17.
It’s described as ”a farewell of sorts, fearlessly exploring Sinclair’s despair about losing a lifelong friend and bandmate. But it is also a clear-eyed survey of what’s good in the world, and a profound statement about why sorrow must be viewed in tandem with joy.”
