There are few musicians who have penned as many iconic rock tunes as Randy Bachman. Often referred to as the "architect of Canadian rock n’ roll," Bachman’s catalog of hits include "American Woman," "These Eyes," "No Time," "You Ain't Seen Nothin' Yet," "Takin' Care of Business," and "Roll On Down the Highway." And now, Bachman himself offers thrilling in-concert renditions and earnest tales behind the creation of all of these classics (and many more) on Every Song Tells A Story, a 14-track CD/DVD set scheduled for release on Tuesday, August 19 via the Independent Label Services Group (ILS).
Recorded in April 2013, at Pantages Playhouse Theatre in Winnipeg, Every Song Tells A Story features Bachman in a rare and intimate setting, weaving together the transcendent and iconic hits of the Guess Who and Bachman-Turner Overdrive with the often-humorous stories that originally brought the songs to life.
Inspired by his award-winning radio program 'Vinyl Tap,' Bachman takes his master storytelling and voluminous musical knowledge on the road and leads fans on a guided journey that encapsulates the last 30 years of popular music presented by one of the greatest rock legends of our time.
A legendary figure in the rock and roll world through his talents as a guitarist, songwriter, performer and producer, Bachman has earned over 120 Platinum and Gold album and single awards, garnered the No. 1 spot at the top of radio play lists in over 20 countries and has amassed over 40 million records sold.
Earlier this year, Bachman was inducted into the Musicians Hall of Fame in Nashville, as well, he received his second inauguration into the Canadian Musician’s Hall of Fame when Bachman-Turner Overdrive are honoured at the 2014 JUNO Awards; The Guess Who were previously inducted in 2001.
